There isn’t a prize for being first one finished but if there were Rose would be our winner! Her rug is beautiful and Sophie agrees. The rug is lovely with bands of color and is accented with lines of black. Rose says she’s cut her strips for placemats already while husband Bill is constructing the frame.
I thought you might like to see the original rug frame that Rosa gave me as well as a rug she made on that frame from old clothes. The rug already had been used as you can tell by worn spots that would never wear completely through. The fabric would likely rot before wearing out.
I need to catch up with all of you but I have the excuse of being sick. Here is Connie’s rug with a good start on it. She’s going to make bands of color starting with red. Notice her assortment of warp strips which will never show when the rug is finished. Also note the little clips at the top securing her strips.
