Finishing the Heather
Once I finished the main stitching on the rug, I turned my attention to the fringe. Here is a closeup of the beginning of the fringe with the Tabby Weave already stitched. I placed the stitches past the edge of the rug by two stitches to leave room for finishing the edge of the rug.
After the fringe is finished on both sides, I take the rug off of the frame and block it. I will discuss blocking in a future post as I have a good picture that will show it well.
Below is a photo of my finished Heather rug. In this photo, you can see the "Abrash" effect very well. It is my first time using an overdyed thread and I am very pleased with the results.
This rug was named after one of my daughters and she loved it when she saw it. She has asked me to make it again life-sized as a hooked rug but I am not sure I will have the patience to hook a rug in this pattern. Only time will tell...

My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
