MEET MISS MERRIE

I'm sure glad Merrie Halloween was on my 11 in 2011 Challenge list - I am very pleased to say she is finished.  Well - the binding has to be done but since I hire out my binding - my work is done !  This rug is 28" X 38" - Gosh I did not realize she was this big - It has taken me a little over 3 years to finish her - of course like everyone - I work on a lot of other things in between and for about a year after we moved - I did not hook much at all.
 
Here is a close up of the upper part of the rug - I just love the vining.  It is really full of color which you probably can't see from this tiny photo.
I am having trouble uploading photos in the normal method - for some reason the select button at the bottom is just not alive when I try to add photos from my PC like I usually do.  So I had to get back into webshots and post from there which I have not done in years and have not kept my webshots on line album current.  So much trouble to post to the blog - to the album and to any groups I might belong to.
So here is a shot of the entire rug.
Hope you are all enjoying your handwork -
