I've been remiss. I mentioned my big a** star rug in my previous post and it didn't occur to me that not all of you would know what I was talking about. And that, even if you knew, you may want a reminder of how it looks. Thank you for the gentle reminder, Lauren of Rugs and Pugs.
So, I give you...my big a** star rug aka Stars and Fans by Sally Kallin of Pine Island Primitives.
I bought this rug in 2008. I last worked on it in September of 2010. This rug measures 30 x 60...the star measures 21 inches across. BIG. I did the star in no time, but when it came time to do the background, I got stuck. I may reverse hook what is done on at least part of the background. Someday. When I finish this rug.
Here is Sally's version. She added a proddy edge...wide wool fringes.
Both of these rugs with their primitive colors are so much more dramatic in real life.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11
