Claire and Gus arrived this morning for a week and the first thing they did was go outside and run with Telly –
through the snow, on top of the snow piles and then to the barn where Claire met her first chicken and then she rolled in the stinky bedding – ick!
Yesterday I decided to experiment with a small rug frame that I had originally called a stair tread because I was making stair treads for the playhouse. I wanted a small “table coaster” – not as big as a runner – that could also fit on my wide concrete windowsills. The actual frame measures 8″ X 22″.
And you know how I like to buy shirts at the thrift store – well, those shirts are woven fabric, my favorite kind to work with when twining because the color is the same on both sides. I warped with a plain ivory woven that was nothing special.
Voila! Here it is on my window sill! I love it!
