The Welcome Rug Revisited

Thank you Kathy Stephens!   I was so impressed with the basket on Abundant Harvest from your Show and  Tell piece at Western McGown Teachers Workshop.  It was the perfect treatment for thee basket on my Welcome rug. I was never satisfied with the basket.  What I had in originally seemed too out of place--the color wasn't right and it stood out like a sore thumb to me.  There wasn't any relationship between the basket and any of the other elements in the rug.  What do you think?

Inspired by Kathy's piece, I am finally on the path towards getting this rug done!  Don't you agree this is working out much better?  I have used the colors of the flowers in the beading in the basket.  It really looks like a basket now.


  1. It looks great. Nice job !

  2. A perfect solution - looks great!

  3. You haven't posted for quite awhile! Hope everything is okay with you.
