I have finally finished the rag rug that I began weaving over a year ago! Woven out of old hemp scraps dyed in shades of red and coral, cotton vichy fabric from France and scraps of cotton and wool yarn, this is truly a rag rug - in the best sense of the word! After finishing the weaving on the loom, I finished it by twisting the cotton warp ends and then letting them twist upon themselves and then knotting each so they wouldn't unravel.
I thought originally, Sofia would want to put this at the side of her bed to keep her little feet warm - but now I am wondering how I could ever put this project of love on the floor? We'll have to wait a few more weeks before we lay it down or roll it up and put it in the armoire for the next 25 years - it was chosen as one of the entries for the Barnsdall Student Art Show.
