Another granny.....

I finished this rug last night
it took 12 days (mostly nights, actually) to complete.
it is for my Georgia to use as a 'play-mat' in her room,
she loves to sit on her floor and play with her dolls and and read her mags and books....
she often plays school with her rather large collection of beanie kids
so I know she will use this on a daily basis ;)
Georgia helped choose the colours, it's made up of all of her favourites!
This was another easy rug to create,
and I enjoyed making it very much, almost as much as Georgia loves it!
and I want to say Thank you to
Alice from Crochet with Raymond
for sharing the pattern :)

Georgia and I have a very busy weekend planned,
All of our boys are away for the weekend, and we are planning lots of Girly things and lots of craft, to keep us busy!
I will share some of our creations soon.

Have a lovely weekend
Gillian :)

Hello the rug is gorgeous - great colours. Did you use a thick yarn or double it us you worked? It has a 'bulky' look which is really cosy and comfy looking.

Oh Thank you everyone for your lovely comments!

Hi Fi,
I guess it does look like it may have been a thick yarn or doubled now you mention it.
but I only used single yarn that is 8ply acrylic
and I used a 4.5mm hook, so I'm not sure if it's my tension, the yarn or using this sized hook that makes it look like this - maybe it's all of them.
