Wow that's a crazy amount of work you've done. They look terrific. I'm old enough to remember when this type of work was in everyone's home. I guess now it's retro. It's very nostalgic for me. Wendy

That brown and turquoise rug is going to be wicked. Looking forward to it being finished. It looks huge.

Wendy, not quite sure what you mean, hand tufted carpets arn't really a Retro thing. They still exist and can be found in just about every high design home. Perhaps you are confusing tufting with the cheezy craft project called latch hook.
google angela adams for some great examples of NEW hand tufted rugs.

Hi Dawn you are right. I did confuse what you are doing because now that I think about those the threads were long. Your's is tight with a texture. No matter what yours look wonderful. Wendy

this is only the first part of the process. once all the tufting is done then the backing and edging gets done, then the loops on the front get hand cut . I'm excited about the finished product and so happy I figured out how to do this all on my own. I'll keep posting pics of the process as it goes along through the finished piece. aiming for Modernism Week in Palm Springs next yr with a full line of hand tufted Tiki Modern rugs.. Also working on a big installation exhibit of how I do tiki aesthetic.

Gorgeous. I can only imagine how many different designs you can create... phenomenal work.

I love how these look even before you cut the loops- can't wait to see how its look transforms when you cut it.
