Another Craft Project

A loooooooooong time ago when I was 8? 10? I started braiding this rag rug. The cotton gets folded neatly as you braid with little metal cones- these ones were my great grandmother's, I think. Every 5 or 10 years I rediscover it and braid some more. The last time I pulled the rug out I decided to start sewing it together. But I must have been crazy because I made it super long and skinny! In rearranging the house for our baby due soon, I found the rag rug again. But when I laid it out on the floor like this, I decided I need to undo the stitching holding it together and make it a MUCH shorter oval.

So even though I'm still working on the mobile, I've started working on the rug, too. It's a good thing to do when I'm exhausted from the day and I'm sitting on the couch with my husband in front of the TV. I hope to get back to printmaking soon, but in the meantime my other oddball projects sure are fun!
