|DD's Graduation rug|
My DD's rug has a spear to represent the spear from her HS mascot - an Indian, and written on the spear are initials from her HS activities, and a softball with her number and HS initials, a flag and the background of blue with flag material to represent her AF JrROTC.
The yarn rug was more expensive to do than I expected as the yarn was about 5 dollars a skein and took WAAYYYY more than I thought it would!!!
I really had fun with the wall hanging - designed the flowers and added fuzzy yarn and buttons to the centers of the flowers and fuzzy yarn for clouds in the sky.

I have one more finished to take pictures of and at least 3 more rugs lined up to do - another for my DD, one for DS for graduation and one or two more for gifts (hopefully for next Christmas - I have yet to keep track of the time it takes me but I just started one and am tracking it just for curiosity - the rug I just finished - the orange and blues, took my about 2 and 1/2 months of evening couch time when not at work)
