Having good friends is a wonderful thing!   My good friend, co-worker and blogger friend has always been very generous in her crafting!   I have been the lucky recipient of some of her many talents.    If you have time please visit her at: Beautifully Exquisite Experiences.   You might just find a new inspirational idea to make.  I was trying to think of some way to thank her when I thought that she might like a little hooked mat for her home.   I know she likes dogs so I decided on this antique rug adaption.
8x11  using a six cut

When I finished the binding I made a little tag and rolled it up and tied a ribbon around.   She really loved the rug and that made me very happy!

Happy Hooking Friends,     


ps i must say that i really loved working on this small project!


  1. I think it is beautiful and she will "ADORE" the rug !! I love the tag and ribbon for the final wrapping !! cooks say ..." presentation is almost everything "...well, I know in hooking it isn't, but it does show the thought behind your super gift !!

    I love your sweet little rug!!! My BFF is an airdale gal and I did a punch needle version for her a few years ago. The bed of flowers is too cute. Oh, I just everything about it. A 6 cut - WOW! I think that's fine hooking.
    Pug hugs :)

  3. Hi Elaine,
    I adore this little rug! I love wired haired fox terriers...our family had one many years ago so I am draw to any thing with a "Duffy" dog on it. The background is wonderful and the flowers are so sweet. Great job...lucky friend!

  4. Hi Elaine! I have to say I felt like the luckiest girl in the world to receive this little rug. I was moved beyond words (which is rare for me) that you spent fo much time on a project for me. I have never owned such a lovely piece of art. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    PS the presentation was so wonderful. Love both tags! When can you take me to that store in Colorado??????

  5. Such a sweet mat with beautiful colors. Well done! Sarah
