Panda rug finished

I had finished the Panda Rug about two weeks ago and took it to my daughter today. She was so delighted and surprised to see it. She knew that I was hooking something and just could not imagine what it could be.

When I showed her the rug, she remembered the picture that she drew as if it were yesterday. She remembered that I had saved it from years ago and that her dad and I had always loved it. She had no idea that I was hooking it as her rug for the new baby. My daughter studied the picture and then the rug over and over again. It made me so happy!

It looks adorable in the baby's room. All we need now is a baby! Autumn Kate will be born in a few weeks. We are so excited.


  1. What a cute rug! And what a great idea! It's always nice when we take the time to make a gift for someone that they truly appreciate it!

  2. Oh my goodness what a treasure!! You did a fabulous job translating your daughters drawing into a rug. She and Autumn Kate will treasure this gift for the rest of their lives. What a wonderful heirloom. Just makes my heart smile looking at both the artwork and rug. Lori

  3. This Panda rug is so cute. Such a heart warming story you have about this rug. Nice post.
