I am so happy that I got it done!

I started this rug in 2002.
Hooked on it for a few months
and then put it aside.
Pulled it out in 2007...
completely changed my color plan 
(thank you, Bren!)
so took every single strip out.
 Started over & hooked all but the eyes.
Could not get them to look decent.
Put it aside.
Pulled it out this year.
Finally got the eyes okay.
Not wonderful, but okay.
Put the binding on over the last week or so.
Finished last night.
Steamed the heck out of it.
Too late to get a good photo
so had to wait until today.

I LOVE this rug!!!

It's a Beverly Conway design measuring ~2 x 3 feet.

Oh, it came out so nicely! I just love the two sheep and the way they are together. The colors in the flower border are great. Super!
