A Little Rag Rug Update

After my ramblings on my previous post here the rag rug taking a turn for the worst,
I decided to unpick the stitching and start again.
 Referring back to my Ann Davis book, she advises to keep the rug flat on a table while stitching it into a coil, easing on the curves so that it will lie flat.

As it is still quite a manageable size I was able to sit it on a large book on  my lap last night and stitched the coil together again with good results.
This is how it looks on the front now


I'm glad I did, it's looking much flatter now.
I expect this will be a sit at the table job from now on.
