FINISHED RUGS AND A NEW FABRIC
Good Friday morning! Just a quick drive by before I start my busy day..I'm off from work, but have a million things to do today. First..is my Halloween rugs that I finished binding last week. I've yet to hang them but I was so happy to have them done. The first is a design from Maria Barton of Star Rug Company and the second design is from Lori Brechlin adapted by Kris Miller for a hooked rug. They were both so easy and fun to hook.
These next two photos are a fabric I found at Joann's while browsing through the linen fabric aisle. It's called "Hopsack Linen". It came in the most beautiful colors. It looks like coarse linen, but when you wash it and throw it in the dryer it comes out all nubby, coarse, and just beautiful! It reminds me of silk matka, but doesn't have the sheen that silk has. I am going to make a table runner out of the dark brown, and then the off-white, I am planning to make some pillows from the designs of Maggie B's new book, for my couch.
Have a wonderful Friday and weekend. Go Detroit Tigers!
