A new rug for the kitchen

I found the perfect rug for the kitchen. It has all of the fruits on the border and the pineapple to match Katie's dishes. I printed the rug onto T-shirt transfer paper and ironed it onto Aida cloth. You get the effect of handstitching with the texture of the cloth. I think it would be better with 18 or 24 count cloth but all I had was 14.

The rug looks great! I did that right on #22 hardanger by ironing it to a piece of freezer paper and running that through the printer. I'm too cheap to buy the transfer stuff. I think yours looks better. I was going to cross stitch on mine.
