More Rugs!

Six rugs just came off of the loom today and they are all patriotic colors.

This photo shows them after they came off of the loom. 
Do you see glowing cat eyes at the top of the rugs?  

Inspector Sadie has added her stamp of approval!

When I order the selvage used to make my Cabin Rugs there is no choice of colors.
 I usually get darker colors and sometimes pastels.
I was very happy with the last order because it had red, white and blues,
 which I usually do not get especially the blues.
All of them were saved till I could make this warp. 

Ready to cut apart and serge the ends.

Ready to hand hem.

Five of the rugs are from selvage till I ran out 
and then I finished the last one with denim.

There are two that I would really like to keep but cannot.
They will be for sell here at the studio or if they last that long at the June studio tour.  

After hemming the rugs then I will be back to stitching/finishing birds and a new rabbit.
I finally got my order of bird eyes! 
I have to find a more reliable source for them. 

 My daffodils are beautiful and our weeping cherry tree is about to bloom. 
Unfortunately it is supposed to be below freezing and some snow flurries this weekend. 
I hope it doesn't kill all of our beautiful blooms.  
After anxiously waiting for Spring to begin
 I will feel so sad to see our first blooms frozen! 


  1. That what I call a great production line. They all look very nice and I'm sure they'll go fast.
    Yeah, your long awaited batch of eyes have arrived. Have you tried National for your eyes? I hope you'll get better luck next time.

    That would be so sad to loose your blossoms before they opened up. Yeah on the daffodils blooming. Still lots of snow here but the snow has started to melt.

    1. Thanks Julia! I will check out the Artcraft site.

  2. The patriotic colors of the rugs are beautiful. Sadie looks very interesting in your progress! We have signs of spring here in southern Missouri & they are calling for a chance of snow tonight.....hope they are wrong.

  3. Those are very beautiful, Louise!
    Love the blues!

  4. I love your rugs, I wish I had them all over my house! I bought a small loom for just such a purpose, 10 years ago and have never learned to use it.

  5. Your rugs are so lovely, its hard not to fall in love with them. Maybe you can hold the two back that you like and sell them later. I love seeing your loom up close. What a great inspector you have in Sadie! I hope they all passed her approval.
