The End of Humble Beginnings

Humble Beginnings, 2013
Pattern by Jane McGown Flynn.
#4 Hand dyed wool strips on burlap, 19" x 35"

The rug is finished except for whipping the edge.  I almost completed the rug with Peggy Hannum's color plan......almost.  I had dyed enough wool to complete the rug as she had planned, but I added some of the deep red to the border rather than complete it in brown.  I believe the center design may have been more the focal point, if I had completed the edge in browns as she suggested, but I just wanted to hook in another color. (I still wonder what the rug would look like with a background of royal purples???) I have a good spot on our floor for this rug.
