Still at it!

I'm still working on rugs. I'm not sure where my week's gone but the rugs are still on my list to finish.
I love this stack of cheerful rugs. They're almost done. All the hems are pinned and I just have to take them to the sewing machine and sew them. I don't just sew across the hems. I sew the ends shut as well to give it a bit more strength so some manipulating occurs at the machine.
You need good muscles for that! There are 9 in this pile. I'm sure my arms will be tired by the time I'm done sewing all these hems.
 Hadn't hemmed these guys yet either. They're next to hem and are all pinned as well, ready to go.
One more warp, all the rest of my loopers chained, I'm ready to move on, back to production.
So heading down to the studio to get the new warp going and later, take a break, and hem some rugs!! Maybe I need an etsy shop to sell them or just take them to one of the shops I sell my things in.
Decisions!!
Until next week, weave on!!

That is a lot of rugs to hem! It is nice to have a variety of things to weave isn't it, I just have to make sure I don't beat the lighter items like I do the rugs!

That's a BIG stack of rugs!!! Good for you! I guess we'll be seeing some of these at Foothills in November!

You have been a busy lady. What nice rugs. Lots of work ahead to get them hemmed.

My oh my what a colorful pile! As bright and shiney as you are.

I sew across the fourth side too, not just the hem edge and the two ends, but across the fold too. Makes it lay flatter on the floor, and not puff up after washing.
