I finished stitching the Prairie Rug II with 24.75 hours of stitching time, which is a lot less than what I put into the first one I never finished. As I mentioned, I had a better handle on the technique so I was able to work more quickly.
I need to go back over it once more, clip any random long loops and fill in anywhere I think it needs it. Then it will be time for final finishing around the edges. I will use the abandoned first attempt to try some techniques before tackling the keeper rug. :D
Hi Brae! Wow, you are Fast! The texture and the nap of this carpet look right to scale and the finish of it is beautiful!
It’s gorgeous, Brae! I look forward to seeing in in place!
Amazingly realistic! I love the color choices as well. Superb job, Brae!
It’s lovely Brae. Love the colour. I’m glad you persevered and re-did the rug.
Brae, congratulations on finishing this adorable rug! Fast and pleasant experience (not considering the first attempt and problem with the colors), can’t compare with petit point! Hugs, Natalia
Heel mooi geworden
Love the finished rug! Can’t wait to see it in place and it is so nice of Cora to again agree to model it for us :-) Might as well get some use out of the old one. Could you take out what you’ve punched in and then repunch in different colors or experiment??? Just a thought.
Oh Brae–this is so beautiful! Can’t wait to see it in one of your wonderful room settings!
I will try out some techniques on the ruined first one for sure.
Brae, that is a beautiful rug! I’m so glad I found your wonderful blog, it has been such an inspiration. Your work gave me the push to try my own rug. Thank you so much for sharing all your hard work!
