Navajo rug - finished!

by brae  

I finished stitching around the edges of the Navajo rug and completed the backing!

As noted before, I didn't count the finishing time, just the cross-stitch time.  :D  The stitching time was 189.5 hours, and the rug was stitched on 32 count Jobelan in parchment.  The finished size is 5 3/16" x 8 7/16".

I've set up a quick scene to show it in a room setting.

The green striped Bespaq chairs are intended to stay with the rug in its future home, but I've borrowed the bookcase from the Heritage since I don't have another suitable bookcase just yet.  The Appomattox Surrender Table is from miniatures.com, and if I keep it with the chairs, it will need some minor color correcting.  The turned box is by CW Lubin.

Chaucer will also stay with the rug.  :D

Anyone care to join me in the sitting room?  I've poured us each a Scotch.
