This is a journal rug, an annual challenge for subscribers on The Welcome Mat. We searched each day in our lives for a circle to appear to us during January The background is from my latest Rug Hooking Magazine column, Lasagna Dyeing. I'll be posting videos here tomorrow for you to try this method, it is a good method for all types of hooking.
All that remains is the finishing of this rug now! It is so unusual that I think it requires a new kind of border.
I'm thinking of an edge of wool circles cut from the remains that are decorated by felting with the leftover strips. There might be some crocheting involved also.
I'm really looking forward to seeing old friends and making new.
Perhaps one of them will be you!
Ps Today on The Welcome Mat I gave a little lesson on trouble shooting , it isn't always the colour you need to fix, sometimes it is the shape!
Standing stones on the right lay down when shaped properly.
