Momma's Rug!

I wanted to share some pictures of the Shirret rug my mom just completed.  She is the original hooker!

Isn't it gorgeous!  I was seriously coveting it!  My mom is who taught me how to do these rugs.  I love her rugs.  She has her tension down pat, and they lay so nice and flat.  

I had to get my poor leg in the last shot.  I am still home healing up.  My cast is finally off and in a boot, I go back in a couple weeks to see my progress and hopefully to start some physical therapy!  

I have finished up a fun project that I am jonesing to share once I can get some good photographs!  

For those interested in the Shirret rugs you can search the posts of my blog for "Shirret" and you will find all kinds of information and links on how to make these rugs.  If you can do a double crochet and a chain you have the skills to make a rug.  It's great fun!

I will leave you with a sweet picture of Phoebe, my little nurse!  She has stayed right by my side these past four weeks!

Bye for now!
