Woolie Wednesday!~ My Favorite Braided Rug!

It's Wednesday already! I wish I had a new wool project to share with you, but I don't and I probably won't for awhile. Life is just crazy and the little free time that I get is spent working on my rug hooking. So, I guess I will just keep sharing wool projects that I have either made in the past, or I will be looking for some to feature on my blog that others' have made...(so if you have one that you want to share, please email me!) :)
Well, this is my absolute favorite braided rug that I have made. I just love how the blues/greys all work together so well, along with a little barn red thrown in there and worked in through-out the rug. It really looks great in my son's room.

Braiding rugs is another one of my favorite wool projects. Although it is a rather long and intense project, especially if you are making a large rug. It can be rather hard on the hands if you braid for a long period of time, but the end rewards are great! They hold up so great and look absolutely beautiful in a home, especially if you are decorating with a prim/country/farmhouse style.
I haven't made a braided rug in quite some time and I hope by this fall I will have one going, that will give me some time to get all my other projects done! ;)

Have a great week everyone! Tarrah
