Books can make us laugh, make us cry, entertain us, and nourish our souls.
Working with your hands keeps you young.

What have I been up to?
This is one of my rag rugs I worked on this last weekend. I am hemming this batch of rugs. I got 4 rugs from 40 to 70 inches long and a mini one at the end that is about 25 in. long. So I ran them back to back and only ran 4 rows of filler between them. So had to take them to the sewing machine in mass to run stitching before I cut them apart. Not to sure that was smart. But I like the clean turned under hem. May make more that way.
Did I mention that my sister and I are making cows with dresses? I am the cow maker and she does the frilly stuff. This is our herd so far. Got info on a big craft fair this fall, so we are gearing up for our first one. We are doing pin cusions now, and I will prob make a few more cows. Plus I have alot of my denim tote bags that I make and my fabric bowls.
