What better thing to do on a cold and icy day
than bind a rug.
Must admit, this is not my favorite activity when
making rugs, but I’m always glad to have it finished.
I prefer to use wool covered cording for my rugs…
I cover the cording with wool using the zipper foot on my
sewing machine (yes, I drug it down from the top shelf
in the closet), then I hand sew it to the rug.
Once it’s sewn on, then I go back and tack the excess wool down
with T-pins in the back
and then hand sew around the edges of the wool.
Hope to get this finished today, so I can move on to the
I have many “unfinished” projects calling my name right now…
knitted socks (even if I could finish 1 of them would be great)
penny rug that needs to be stitched into a pillow (it has a spring
theme, so hopefully I can get on that next….it should be quick if
I would just take the time to sit down and work on it)
moose rug/pillow that I started
Here’s a gratuitous picture of Buzzbee looking out the window as
Kenny left to go run some errands…..he’s such a cutie!
He’s been a great addition to our home!
