Rug Hooking| My Mother's Christmas Present

Rug Hooking|

The rug for my mother's Christmas present is finished, and I need to figure out how to bind it. I have folded and pinned over the edges of the backing, but I do not have any cotton tape to lay over top of it. I was thinking of sewing some wool across the whole back after tacking down the backing material.

Crochet and Knit| Vintage Knit and Crochet patterns

Crochet and Knit

My sister in law gifted me a stack of vintage pattern magazines last year and I haven't used them. Today I posted them on my work classifieds to see if anyone wants to buy them for $10 OBO.  There are 11 issues ranging from the 1940's to the 1950's. I wonder if I posted them too low or too high. I don't really think anyone will buy them but we will see.

Rug Hooking| My Mother's Christmas Present Rug

Rug Hooking

I have made many things, but this is my first rug. I am going to give it to my mom for Christmas, everyone has gotten a quilt or an afghan in the last couple of years except, my mom.  To atone for this she can be the first to get a 9658 rug.  I am pretty confident that it will be finished in a couple of weeks, but then what?...!
