The Seven Year Rug
Seven years ago (just before I came along) Mom started working on a latch hook rug based on one her favorite Aussie paintings. Over the years when ever she has time
gets bored she drags it out and does a bit more work on it. As you can see there is really only one corner to finish. It is 6 foot by 4 foot and is very heavy so Mom usually sits of the floor to work on it. Now us - being the ever nosy and inquisitive helpful doggies that we are .....we often come and sit with her but for some reason she doesn't always appreciate our assistance. She grumbles about us adding extra weight ...but it is soooo soft and comfy to lay on. Mind you - it took the Mom a whole week to get to Dweeb to actually come close to it and another few days after that before he would sit on it !!!! Now of coarse she can't get his fluffy butt off it. Mom isn't sure if she is EVER going to be able to finish it because she can no longer get two of the wool colors she used and she isn't sure what she has left will be enough - doh Mom - you didn't think that one out all those years ago did you? Oh - for those that don't know - those are goannas - large lizards that can grow 3-4 foot long.
