"Square Pocketful, 2006

17" x 17" x 15"

I chose this pattern because I loved the freedom of the goofy flowers, and there is not a repeat in sight!  I gathered all my favorite textures and added a few solids.  The golds are 6C, Warm Bread and 6D, Dull Gold from my dye book, Dyeing by the Numbers.  The red is 2005 red (you can find this recipe here) and 3B, My Favorite, also from my book.

The finishing was done in a class with Kim Nixon.  My guild, Michigan Rugg Artistes, brought her in to teach a class.  The finishing was surprisingly simple and easy.  It was faster than finishing a rug of the same size!  I will probably make more footstools and use Kim's method for finishing.
