New Obsession - Rug Braiding

In Paducah I became obsessed with rug braiding after seeing a few vendors working on them. I bought the book and DH made the frame for me. So here I am, cutting my fabric into 2" strips instead of washing my windows. Did I really need a hobby?

I'm heading back outside to do battle with the grass and weeds in my flower beds. Why won't that stuff just grow in the lawn instead???

Mom has only been out of the hospital since Wednesday, and she may be going back in. The 'home' called this afternoon - her extremities are all swollen (I think that means arms & legs). So my garden battle may be short lived today.


  1. what is the name of the rug braiding book you bought.

    Audrey, Markham, ON

  2. Dear Audrey, the book is called Rugs From Rags, by Country Threads.
    It was $10 U.S., so a pretty good deal.


Please - share your wisdom...
