Garden Rug update

Even with all of the talking and the boat ride Friday  night at the lake, I did mange to complete the areas of my rug that I planned to work on while I was at the lake.  Of course, being the natural blonde that I am, I forgot to take my camera.  So of course we saw wild turkey, went on a sunset boat ride and everyone was working on new projects……sorry guys….I’ll try to do better next time around….in the meantime, you get to look at my stuff AGAIN.

I’m not super happy with the “bird of paradise” portion…..this may get tweaked later on, but for now it’s “holding it’s place”, it’s just too flat looking.

I think the morning glories will look a little more vivid once I get the leaf portion hooked around behind them.

However, this was my favorite part.

Trying out a new technique and it actually worked!

May sit down for a while this afternoon or this evening and work on this rug a bit more.


  1. WOW! That is fabulous, Tammy! Truly Fab. U. Lous! I love how you are always trying new techniques...especially when they work out so well. YAY for you!

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous Tammy. I love what you did with the cord. Can't wait to see this vibrant rug great finale. JB

  3. Tammy,
    Was curious about how that new technique would work. It looks amazing. Did you ever let me know where you found that wonderful wool to use? It would look good even without the cording.

    This garden rug has some of the most interesting wools used in it. The three together should be stunning.


  4. I love the wrapped cord technique for the stem... bravo! If your interested in ideas... I think the bird of paradise flower would look fun if the orange was proddied...? Just a thought... those are one of my favorite flowers... and the reason why I like them is because they look like "crazy birds"!!! LOL!

  5. I love that wrapped cording as well. I am literally wiping drool off my chin. The colors are gorgeous!!!!!

  6. What a beauty!...I love the greens your using.

  7. I want to hook like that this coming weekend. Looks so amazing and exciting. I can't wait to see some of your outputs. Keep posting thanks.
