I've also been having a bit of a play with a new project ..... not a quilt this time ...... it's an old fashioned 'rag rug'. I love anything "oldy worldy" - I've often said I was born about 100 years too late LOL!!! I've been tearing up old sheets to make this and I'm quite enjoying it - there's something really therapeutic about the sound of ripping the sheets ...... it's a good anger buster LOLOL. It's a bit messy with all the loose threads, but I'm thinking once it's trimmed up it will look good :o). I have no idea where I'm going to put it, but I've always liked them (in fact anything from 'days gone by') and wanted to do one - so I'll worry about that out later LOL. Now I need to hunt through my linen cupboard for some contrasting colours. Unfortunately it's not that long since we painted the house so most of my old ones went as 'drop sheets' - grrr!!! Oh well, a trip to the local 'thrift shop' should fix my need. Once you get started it's easy to do and it's a good way to recycle old sheets and doonah covers. The ones I used were originally on my DD1's bed when she was tiny - she's 26 now!!! I knew they'd come in handy one day tee hee :o).
Here's one last pic, it's of my dear Sophie, doesn't she look cute??!!?! I couldn't resist her sleeping on my ironing board using my pin cushion as a pillow..... adorable :o) . Lucky she didn't poke herself in the eye - those pins look lethal!!!
