Now that summer is officially here, I got around to finishing the smaller penny rug. I really wanted the pattern for a larger penny rug, so I enlarged it on a copier, and added some extra length to the middle section. I need to get more green floss for the leaves, but it's another project that I started. =)
This is sitting in the middle of my living room, taking up all the extra space. It's a faucet and vanity top for our upstairs bathroom. There's a smaller bathroom downstairs that I still need to buy an extra faucet for, so that I can call someone to install them.
I finished binding the second little rug that I hooked. On this binding, I did something different. Instead of added cording and whip stitching, I simply turned under the edge, used a piece of black wood instead of cotton twill tape,and whip stitched together using strips of black wool. (I'm trying to upload a photo of the binding in progress, but blogger won't let me) I really like this edging for a small piece, as it's not bulky. It gets me inspired to do a few more projects!
Now to find the time for more projects. I end up driving the kids back and forth to drivers ed. Then at the end of June, I'll be a teacher's aide for summer school. It's a new experience for me, but I'm looking forward to it. (especially since I found out my youngest needs orthodontic work - soon. I already have 2 in braces currently) I'm hoping that this job experience will lead to something else when school begins.
Hope you're having a great summer!
