Boris-Loree Rug

Boris-Loree shall have his rug soon. The 2nd dog has now been finished in the men`s suit fabric & I`m really enjoying the Briggs & Little softspun for the back ground. The wedgewood blue background is going to be too plain & I thought of using a polka dot background...that seems too Mary Englebriet & the thought of scotties, these are suppose to be Boston Terrier`s. Then I thought flowers, Boris-Loree`s a male. Maybe just a rippling or echoing effect of changing colours. I`m leaning on using the anchors from the small quilt in the picture to ├ánchor`the four corners down. So many design ideas, I do like the idea of a checker pattern outside of the oval, giving a real cottage feel to the dogs. I love Jim Shore`s work.  Oh well I`m a woman & my mind will change a dozen times I`m sure, before this rug is finished for Boris-Loree.

  1. Cynthia, this will look great. I enlarged the photo and I see you are using a punch needle to hook this rug. I'm sure that you will have that done in no time. JB
