I am alive and trying to be social

I have been gone sooooooo long. Nearly 3 years. How does time fly by so fast?

I have not sewn anything by machine for almost 3 months. I have been making rugs from sheets and my vast stash of quilting cottons. I have emptied 15 fabric bolts. And wound more fabric on nearly half of that 15.
I am using a cork bulletin board to do my rug start. I have attached a measuring tape to the sides but seem to always make the starter 21" long. (that is the measurement of the bulletin board) HA!


Hubby made me several needles from Butler gum brushes. I have been color coordinating them to the color rug I am working on. Since August I have made 10 rugs.

The one below I have next to my bed. This one is all sheets.


Love the colors...
This will be short for now as I need to reacquaint myself with all the tools here on blog spot.

Hi Subee! You have been missed! Your blog is in my Inoreader feed so I get notices when you post but have periodically checked to make sure I didn't miss a post! So glad to know you are doing well and those rugs are great. I did some years ago but they were done with a very large crochet hook and I used yardage (mostly from decorator warehouses here in the Dallas area.) They were fun but hard on my hands! I think I have donated all of them over the years. Hope to see more posts from you. Welcome back!

Love your choice of sheets and design for your bedroom rug. Where can you find the directions for this kind of rug?

PymaGirl said...

I am the lady who asked for the directions. I marked on this comment Email follow-up.

I learned on the internet on Face Book. The lady I watched was Whitehouse rugs and whimsies. She has tons of FREE Utube videos and sells starters of which I bought 4 different ones at different times until I felt comfortable enough to try on my own. It took many tries to get my starters looking a nice as hers. The starters are only $15 and you get the needle and get to pick your two colors.
