Maybe this will be a favorite

About every 10th rug that I make I look at it and think that maybe I will have to keep that one.
This one is all cotton "rags". Recycled old shirts, with a little flannel thrown in and other cotton from skirts and such.  I like the dark colors.  It is 60 in long and 27 in wide.
This is the first that I have done the sewing maching hem on the binding.  I like it alot, but it is hard to see in the picture.

So I took a picture of my thumb so you can see the turned hem. 

These are a sampling of the pin cushions that my sister and I are making.  We pick up the cups and things that we think will be cute at garage sales then make the cushion and decorate with all kinds of things.  I am about done with them, but don't tell my sister. 

The little town where I have my book store is having a celebration this weekend.  They always do on the weekend just before the 4th of July.  Plan on setting a table out front with some rugs, cows, and books.  I usuallly do this on Saturday anyway.  Not real sure it helps but you never know. 

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY.  Lets hope we don't lose any more of our freedoms!

  1. Even if it doesn't seem to help that day, word of mouth does and I'll bet your items will be mentioned, so perhaps others will stop by the shop on another day to "check out" what they've heard about. ;)
