How is everybody doing on their rug? Evidently OK because I’m not fielding many questions. I told you that DVD was easy to follow, didn’t I? I never believed Connie when she said it was helpful but she was right. Someone asked for some rug pictures. The really colorful one is made with T-shirt knit, the brown one is made with brushed cotton and the red and white one is made from homespun.
We also made many placemats through the years but never used them as a placemat. I have them under the dog water pail, under a pair of boots in the hallway, by the stove as a hot pad and here on an end table leftover from Christmas. See all the threads on this one – made prior to pinking blades.
This closeup is taken of a rug made with woven fabric cut with a pinking blade. If you look closely, you can even see the cut and you’ll see there are not so many threads.
Last night was choir practice and I felt well enough to go and if I didn’t go I’d feel guilty. So off I went. About halfway through rehearsal I felt a coughing spell coming on and it was a doozy. Lasted almost 10 minutes as I paced out in the lobby and hacked away. Ugh!
And just a few entertaining cat pictures for you. Millie can find the darnedest places to sleep!
