On the right, we have the original project, made from strips of fabric I bought at a quilt shop I worked in, in northwestern Montana ten years ago. It was put to the test last night at a candle lit dinner for two. Unfortunately, the pets thought it was for them, and we had furry foot warmers during dinner. I love that it is the perfect exact size for my table!
And here, the piece d'resistance! The shag rug of my dreams! It just fits into my teeny, tiny bathroom, but what a joy it is to sink one's toes into! I learned a lot from this project, and hope to make many, many more shag rugs, in many different ways! The lavender rug is missing from the photos, but I couldn't get a good photo of it in its new home, at the side of my bed. It perfectly matches the accent wall in my bedroom, and my feet were happy to find it there this morning!
So, now it's time to warp for the first turned overshot project! 582 ends, 2 yards long. That's a lot of ends, but I love winding warps.
I have to tell you that I was interrupted writing by the cries of a small fluffy kitten. Weft finally figured out how to get on top of the kitchen cupboards, something Leo has never been able to do. Apparently, he was quite surprised, judging by the crying. And then, I had to make him wait until I found the camera! I hope your days are looking up!
