Now the rug stands a few more years to be enjoyed on the wall not the floor....

Seam binding and upholstery tacks....

Here's another window put to good use undercover... I inherited this handmade-by-my-grandmother hooked rug and enjoyed it many years....but...one side was fraying and disintegrating and had outlived its purpose as a rug...so found an old window frame a little smaller than the rug, removed the glass, and tacked the rug in place...and voila...
