We're soooo close now to having both of these rugs delivered, so we can photograph them and then
YOU COULD TOTALLY WIN ONE. A couple of days ago, Dilana sent me a few pics from their workshop, showing some of the stages of the hand-tufted rug being created. eeeeeee I wish I didn't have to give this one away!
Projecting the design onto the base screen and drawing up the shapes;
then tufting the New Zealand wool (this is the underside - hence the flatness of the wool)
Tufting complete, Sam applies an adhesive to secure all the wool.
A backing canvas will be added later, after the rug is cut out of the screen.
The finishing touches - shearing and clipping the wool. Woah, it's looking GOOD.
