Goodbye June ~


Well, I finally have a finish.  Woo hoo.  This rug seemed to take forever.  The finished size is 16" x 50".  Pattern by Red Barn Rugs.  Class with Cathy Stephan.

I love the center flower.  (Thanks, Cathy!)  The first picture was taken with a flash and the second without.  The color is somewhere in between.


I'm not too sure about the star flowers.  I hooked them slightly different. 

Of course I won't be rushing to bind it before vacation, so will take another look-see when I get home, but I most likely will leave them as-is. 
Tomorrow I have a class with Rebekah L. Smith.  It should be fun but I sure don't need another project.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. You have done an amazing job, Lauren. Really like your color choices. Enjoy your vacation !

  2. It's beautiful and I love the colors as well. Enjoy your vacation you lucky girl and Happy 4th of July.
    We are celebrating Canada 150th Birthday tomorrow on Canada Day. All I have for decorations is a little red Maple Leaf Canadian flag for the table. I just came in from yard work at (:40 so I'm having a glass of wine and I'm off to bed.
    Hugs, Julia

  4. Love ur mat! So very pretty!
    Happy 4th july,,, and holidays!!
    We have canada day today! Hooking to be done!!

  5. A real stunner! I just love how the b&w honeycomb wool makes the flower colors pop. Poor baby, I feel your pain with the rug binding. Maybe a couple little elves will have it finished for you by the time you get back from vacation....ya think??

  6. Hi Lauren,

  8. Beautiful rug great color.
    have a wonderful time on vacation.

  9. WOW! I love that rug! I think it's one of the best you've ever done.

  10. Spectacular. I think this is surely one of my favorites that you have hooked. I would leave the flowers. They are both lovely. I have used that little black and white dirty wool on several projects. Amazing how it adds that special little oomph. Have fun on your trip!
