Road rug finished

Designed and hooked by Margaret Cooter
It measures 64cm x 85cm and is made of wool strips, recycled from a bit of blanket and some charity shop garments. The roads are parts of routes we drive on quite often - eg to the grocery store and favourite museums - and some of it is just plain made up. Now that it's done I have the urge to join up those sideroads - they seem to be crying out to be joined up....

My blog shows how this is linked to some books I'm making - click here.


  1. Hey good to see Road Rug on our Blog...it really is amazing Margaret. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Your Road Rug is great Margaret - it makes me want to know exactly where the roads are and where they lead.


  3. Tried to leave a comment last week (and today) but having technical problems! Your rug looks great and the variegated background works really well. You mentioned joining the side road - please don't! The gaps create a tension which is interesting. Maybe hook primary coloured roundabouts in the gaps?!

  4. Lovely, unique piece. Very stiking design :o)
