Friendship Rug!

I spent a lovely day today at my friends home, crocheting together all the squares i have received in an online crochet exchange i belong to plus a lot i made myself. So far 126 squares are attached, in one direction at least. I still have to add quite a few more to get the size i need. I want it to cover my 3 seater leather couch to protect it from the winter sun. Not as strong as summer sun of course but still not good for leather. These are a couple of pics taken today by my good friend just to show the progress of the rug. Can't wait to get it finished...

Thanks Pat, not sure just yet what i'm going to do with the trim , the cream and maybe some of the other colours in the squares? :))

I think that is a lovely idea.. some of those brighter colours would be stunning :))

Hi Tina .. wow what a lot of lovely squares. I don't envy you having to join them all though :) Look forward to seeing a pic of the finished blanket.

This rug is going to look wonderful on your couch. Thanks for the warning so we will bring down our own chairs when we visit because there is no way that anyone would sit on a work of art !!!

Hugs

How nice. It's certainly going to hold lots of memories and will become a story in itself. Wonderful!
