My Own 'Fling' Rug- Part 2 of 2

After turning the edges in...

 
...and rubbing for several more hours...

 
...I 'sign' the back with a friend's orange pencil roving.

(Thanks, Frances!)

 
My beautiful friend, Lindy...

...snapped this photo of me at the end of a loooong day of felting! :)

 
My finished rug, hanging to dry...

 
...and on display at our 'end of the week sharing'.

 
A close-up of the pre-felt rug details...

...perfectly flat and completely felted in...

 
...and at home, waiting to be hung on the wall.

Several hours? I'm not sure I'd have the patience!

Amazing! So only rubbing, no rolling? I could not imagine how long that would take!

So fine and detail, with signature is unique. Your work is inspiring always.

I'm glad to know it's going to be hung, and not walked on. I love how you signed it on the back. Great idea!! :)

Kelly- There was a very little rolling at the end, but you're right, it was a LOT of rubbing! :)

Jane and Deborah- I think that's one of the reasons I find classes so valuable. There's no way to 'wimp out' and not finish when there are encouraging instructors, time set aside and fun classmates! :)
