Small mat, rug progress
Saturday, August 28, 2010:
After shopping with my friend yesterday, I started this small piece last night. I used a 5-size canvas, and cut about 1/2" strips from one yard of cotton. I used almost the whole yard of fabric for this. I didn't like the 5-size as much as the 3.75 canvas, it may be better for yarn or ribbon. I put the border on, my first time, and now I know more how to border my big rug, or at least I know what not to do. Since I know how far a yard will go on 5-size canvas, now I want to see how much a yard of fabric will make. It would be nice to be able to estimate what I need for different projects I do.
This is the progress in my big "bear" rug. I can see the difference in the green fabric, but the other end will be the same, so I think it will be okay. Also in the picture are the two fabrics for the outside border row and edging. I'm going to use the cotton cord I bought yesterday when I wrap (or whip?) the edges. It's going to be so great on the floor beside my bed.
This weekend I need to do my usual chores, go to the grocery store, wash some clothes, and make more progress on my locker rug. I may just cook out on the grill tonight.
My computer seems okay, I have no idea why - or what was wrong or if it's fixed. But it's okay for now. /Deb
