One completed rug

I've gotten a little side tracked from the garden shed this week and decided to finish the rug for the castle room.  Here is the completed rug.  It took me about 2 years, off and on, because I kept putting it down to work on other items.  But it is so nice to have it finished.  I was challenged with blocking it, and I may wet it again and try a little more, but it is much improved over where I started.

I also photographed it with some of the other pieces for the castle room, so you can see the colour theme I am working with for this project.

And from another angle to see more detail

Overall I am pleased with the finished product.  I have always had one miniature needlepoint project in the works at all times, so now I need to find another to start.  I would like to do some needlepoint cushions for the castle room, but am still looking for the right pattern.  Would love some floral and traditional patterns.  If you have some suggestions, I would love to hear about them.

Hello to all the new followers.  Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog.  I've found several new blogs to follow myself in the past week because of the new followers.  There are such wonderful and interesting blogs to read out there.  I think I follow over 700 blogs's getting hard to keep up with them all, but I am managing.

It's been an absolutely beautiful week here in St John's, and now we are celebrating our Canada Day weekend, with an extra day off, YIPPEE! So I have to go outside and enjoy this beautiful weather. It's Newfoundland and we are lucky to get two months of summer, so we have to grab every beautiful day when we can. It's suppose to get up to 27 degrees celcius today.

Until next time............

Thanks everyone for your kind comments on the rug. I will post the information on how to get the pattern in the next posting.

Hello Wanda!
Your rug is exquisite! You did a beautiful job of stitching this piece even if it took two years (off and on). I tried once to do one of these kind of rugs and gave up, hired someone to do it for me.
Congratulations on persevering!
Love your flower beds from the previous post.
Look forward to seeing more of what you do!
Warm regards from Ray
