Prairie Rug #4

Look!  I finished another.  This one is a little bigger than the first 3.  I love how it flows, and it's so fun popping all the colors up like pixels painting.

Prairie Rug #4

My husband asked, "why are you doing that?  Your other stuff is way better"  Hehe.  I like this though - what I end up with is always such a surprise because of the prints or gradations in the fabric scraps.

It's fun! I'm making a rag rug right now (whenever I feel like it) and sometimes you just have to have mindless fun. :)

Husband like to keep us on the right track...or what they believe is the right track...lol. I like everything you do; and it is nice to have a change once in awhile.

I guess your husband's entitled to his own opinion but I really like this avenue you're on.

I can sort of get what your husband means. To them it would seem like your thread painted works are more realistic with more detail. I like the little rugs though. It's quite different using fabric instead of wool.

Looks like you are having a nice time with your hooky! And sometimes it's great to switch it up a bit for the variety, right? And the results... stunning!! I love the roughness and texture of it! Enjoy!
