I wasn't going to make any punches this week, but I saw this antique rug and I just had to make my own version.
I loved the simplicity of the design and I had some over dyed threads that I have been wanting to try in the right project. This was perfect for them. The dyed threads are in the background and in the border. I love how it all came out.
The bad thing is, I had to use flash to get a picture and then mess with them in photoshop to get the right colors back.
I did the best that I could, but it is so much more prim in person. I wanted it to look like an antique rug and even used a 3 height to get a better hooked look. I put it up on ebay tonight, so for those of you, who wanted a piece on a board, here is your chance to get one;)
