Sherbet

Maybe I should take more time off. It seems to have lit a fire under me. I got so much done today, it's scary.

First of all, I finished a stair runner. It is just lying over my own stair runner so I could take a picture of it, now my old one looks boring to me......I want THIS ONE.
Not really, it belongs to a customer.

I spent a lot of time finding, cutting, winding all the fabric for this runner, but when I started weaving it, I was glad, because it went so much faster.

My newest rugs: sherbet rugs.
The soft pastel colors remind me of the colors of sherbet.

I had a lot of fun taking pictures of them in progress.

These rugs are bumpy, but soft and cushy.

They look like sherbet mountains.

As much as I love the bright, vibrant colors of the Solmate sock rug, these pastels are a breath of fresh air.

Oh, my, I am having so much fun.

When having purchased woven rag rugs in the past I've always found that they shrink too much for my liking. What's the best way to wash and care for them, or should I just not place them in the dryer?

I love your blog! Those sherbet rugs look fabulous. What did you use for the weft? I look forward to reading it everyday.

I like the little mountains of serbert especially since it's only 9:30 am and we are in the upper 80's down here, I'd love to be swimming in serbert. I like the change of the colors they are lighter looking than your soulmate rugs, but equally as pretty.

That stair runner is huge! It makes me realize that I can make a 10' rug too. Thanks!
