Time to light a candle in celebration. The binding is complete. American Floral is now hanging over the fireplace.
Funny how putting something different on the wall leads to the cleaning and rearrangement of the entire room.
The summertime mantle.
I added a few photos for Lauren ... :-))
I made the binding from black wool. It is 3 1/2 inches wide and I had to sew some strips together long enough to go around the rug. All hand sewn on. I plan to do a tutorial on how I bind my rugs.... don't hold your breath though... you know how long everything takes me!
Thank you all for your kind comments and emails.... Diane... I will run a photo tomorrow of the wools I used for the background!! Promise!
