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!
