This is a picture of the Exotic Rug from Stitcher's World Magazine from a few years ago. I fell in love with the wildness of it and the crazy bright colours so over time I managed to stitch it up. It is done on 14 count aida with two strands of floss which of course makes it very thin and really not suitable for a rug at all. It is very large so I don't want to frame it but someday perhaps I can make it into a wall hanging. Meanwhile it is languishing somewhere around the house.
So I have one large useless piece of stitching here ... what else could I do but start another large piece that will likely never be a rug either? This is the beginnings of the Garden Rug from Stitcher's World magazine. This time though I am doing it on 28 count (over two) with 4 strands of floss. Perhaps it will be a little more substantial and rug-like. Although I doubt that if it ever gets finished I will ever let anyone set a foot on it!
I guess I just like the idea of stitching a rug!
