I hit some stores this week and got some great buys.
One was a yard of upholstery fabric from Jo anns. Seems someone made a mistake and marked it down to 3 dollars and it was originally 40 a yard, nice deal;) I think it will make a beautiful supply bag, once I figure out how to make one.
The second find was new wool fabric at the thrift. Only .99 cents and over a yard each, so was very happy when I found that.
I found a new use for my old basket. It now holds wools and my braided rug, as I work on it. I was going to make stair treads, but thought it was too thick for that and decided to just keep going and make a large one for my living room. I want to make a hooked rug, but that will take a long time. This way I have something for now and allow me to plan and work on the hooked one.
And this is what I have done so far. I work on it part time, in between all my other projects. I am using up the wools that are not great for hooking and trying to stay on the darker side with this one. We shall see, as it progresses and what wools I pull out of the cellar. And yes, it is cockeyed, like everything else I make;)
