I finished the needle felted rug last night.

This has been a very different type of project for me.  When I first envisioned a rug for my sewing/sitting room, I planned on something more traditional - floral, reminiscent of traditional hooked rugs, or perhaps a Jacobean design.  But the bright colors and an abstract design called out to me.  My room has pale gray walls, a charcoal grey floor and an in-between gray sofa - it called for color.

And Bijou the Siamese likes it just fine...
