This site has been posted by other bloggers, but it is worth reminding everyone of. Here is the link:

This site shows hundreds of color combinations, each showing five different colors. You can search by keywords, colors, etc. For instance, if you were doing a rug with animals in it, type in the key word animal, and you'll get hundreds of matches.

A great source for choosing rug colors! Have fun.

I have finally completed my Silent Night Rug. It has been hooked, bound, had binding tape sewn down, and had label applied!!

This is a gift for my new grandson, due to arrive in about three weeks. I've changed the name to "An Angel to Watch Over You." Got kind of creative with the label for the back of the rug. I traced my hand onto a piece of natural wool and then cut out two different-sized hearts. Using the blanket stitch, I sewed it onto the back of the rug. Used a silver fabric pen to write on the heart. All in all, I'm quite pleased with the results. Now, we just need the new baby to arrive.

Baby shower is a week from Saturday. Looking forward to seeing family and friends. I sewed up some table runners (picture shows them folded in half) for the party, and I'll use balloons in green, orange, and blue for the centerpiece. Can't wait.
