So Mad...

Remember the hooked rug I have been working on?  Well,  I am so mad.  I didn't look well enough and there is a hole in the burlap right in the center.  I do NOT want to have to throw this away because of a stupid hole.

I have made some progress on it albeit slow progress. LOL.  I have been searching the web trying to figure out how to fix it.  I believe I can patch it with another piece of burlap.  The problem is I don't have any more.  Maybe I can cut a piece off the edge to piece it.  All I know is I have to do something.  UGHHH!!!!

This is what I've done so far.

See the hole is smack dab right in the middle.  I do have a little extra on the edge I might be able to use.  If any of you have any suggestions please let me know.  I really would like to hook this completely.

Well, I hope you have a great day while I go stare and sulk until I figure out something.

Take a piece from the selvage area and after you have hooked all the pieces around it, possibly make the one feather longer to touch the other feather, GENTLY cut around where the hole is, the entire area not just the little spot where the hole is. Make sure your replacement piece fits there and has enough to go under all the pieces around it, replace it and hand sew it to the back side of the hooked pieces. Shouldn't be noticable at all. I hope that helps, and good luck. Sharon in Colorado

Sorry I can't help. I take a strand of the linen and weave it in where necessary for cross stitching but I'm not familiar with rug hooking.


What Unknown said will work but if you want a piece of linen drop me a note and let me know what kind your working with (I have several different kinds) and I'll be happy to send it to you. By the way, your doing a super job on your rug! Sher
