This rug was made in a frame using a technique called twining.
I have just warped this rug frame and started two rows.
If you would like to make a rug with me, you’ll need our book Rugs From Rags and our DVD, both for $20.00.
Rugs can be made with old fabric you don’t want to sew with anymore, old linens, clothing, T-shirts – anything that’s washable. Denim is difficult to work with and even though it’s readily available, it’s not a good choice for a first rug.
This rug requires a wood frame and directions are included in the book to make your own. I am going to contact some of the retailers who use our book to see if they can supply the frame, for those of you who don’t have a handyman.
We worked in the garden today – the dogs happily dug in the burn pile.
You were all in awe of Gloria’s gardens and so were we!
Reed enjoyed meeting kitty and so did Becky and Owen visited, too! He’s been well loved in the past few days.
Isn’t he just so cute?
Last year Reed gave me this Japanese lilac tree for my birthday – isn’t it beautiful?
Hazel loves when Connie visits – she whines and cries so Connie will give her a tummy rub.
This little kitten is needing a home real soon because I like him too much!
