The rug will b e very attractive! I have a hooked rug languishing in a bin....with a ton of wool fabric. And a lap frame. And a cutter. I go all out when I get into a craft!
Yes rug hooking is an expensive art form. So worthwhile. I love your little rug. Cheerful and sweet. You should make cookies with the cookie cutters you used and eat them in it's honor when it is done.
