Another finish for 2010....only took 8 years!







This is a granny square rug I started working on over 8 years ago and then put in a cupboard and forgot about till this weekend just gone.I re-discovered it and decided to finally finish it.All that needed to be done was to sew in all the loose end threads and then do a few rows of black edging around it.
It looks good on our bed but I'm thinking it would be lovely to snuggle under on the couch this winter.
