I finally had some time to play with stitching my rug some more. I can happily say I am halfway done with the stitching! :-)
I'm thinking of stitching a second one when I get this one completed. I switched needles last week because the size I was using was absolutely horrible for the strand amount and the size of fabric, but at the time it was all I had on hand. So I want to see if using this new size from the beginning will look better.
I really like the zig zag pattern in the center of the rug. It's fun to stitch and just looks cool.
Here's hoping the new needle makes for much faster work on this piece. I'll post more soon, I hope.
