She is leaning towards the red one, "Because it matches my apron." I know that, if I finish this one, she will immediately want a new apron that doesn't match....Thus, another rug will have to be made.
I am leaning towards the brown one because of the more complicated geometric design.
I explained how I did the rug yesterday, but I forgot to give you the website that I borrowed them from. I have been doing mini rugs from the real ones on this site for many years. Before they were on the net, they had a wonderful catalog from which to get designs. They still do. The name of the company is Peerless Rugs.http://www.peerlessrugs.com/ If you go down on the page just a little, you will see the alphabet in little squares....Each square has a number of rug companies represented that starts with that letter(except for x and y). Within each company page, there are different rugs represented.... Hundreds and hundreds of rugs. Most of them are shown in a flat format so that they can be copied and used.That's where I got these two. So many choices!
Of course, as you know, I can never just start one project and go straight through to the finish. You saw the red one that I started Wednesday. By Thursday I couldn't stand it anymore. I started the brown one.
Tessie is holding it hostage. She says I can show it to you, but if I attempt to do another stitch, she will stab me with the needle.
I don't want to get stabbed, but I do want to work on a rug. Hmmmmm......There was another rug on Peerless that I liked. It is a zebra print. It might be too much with the ribbon chair. I am going to go look at that one again. Maybe I can get Tessie interested in browsing the site. Whilst she is looking, I can sneak away with the brown rug. I am liking that one for somewhere in the house. I really want to work on it some more.
Oh! I forgot to say that I have done a lot of oriental rugs printed on fabric from this site also. So many rugs, so little time......
See you tomorrow.
