Almost 2011!

I managed to finish another rug but the camera is broken so can't take apicture.
But I am having a little break from crocheting rags and want to do some small patchwork cushions and some proggy ragging....

And also use up some of this wool I have accumulated ;)

Almost Xmas

Well my hands have been too sore to get on with much rugmaking but I have managed to start some sort of freeform crewelwork and have managed to get rid of 'to mend' pile.

I have about 100 biscuits to bake this week for part of my christmas present hampers and the ironing and cleaning and that is all I am doing until it is time to start preparing Xmas dinner.

But once Xmas is out of the way I need to get on with my rugs, carry on with my needlework and get my sewing machine out for some patchwork.

Now just need to find the time :)

Nearly Xmas

I have flu, the kids have flu so not much is getting done.

I have listed my rugs for sale on Folksy http://www.folksy.com/shops/amydavew

And I have just started a new one out of curtains in dark blues/reds/greens this will be a more hardwearing door or kitchen rug.

That's it for now...:)

So far...

Had very porrly children and I am ill also so not much going on.

I have started making 'yarn' for anothe rug and hopefully it will look good when I finally get round to it.
I have also sold one of my rugs which I am really chuffed about and it looks like somebody wants to display them in their shop for sale!!

But mostly been making decorations with the kids and trying to keep them all happy this week...

Hopefully will be back on form soon x

3 new rag rugs...finally finished

3 very different rugs and I have finally finished them! I am very, very happy with how they look and wish I could keep them all but these are either going to be sold or given as gifts.

And this one is for my lounge..

So far...

I fifnished the rug for my lounge and have started on ones I am going to try and sell, I have made a circular green one and it looks great. I am now onto and oval yellow/orange one and have the material ready for a pastel/icecream coloured one.

I am not sure if they will sell or not but I am enjoying making them plus  the mountain of material is slowly going down!

Rag rug making overdrive

I am making as many as I can as my material stash is getting out of control. So pictures will be up once done!

Getting along slowly...

My rag rug for the lounge is almost done and I have made a few squares for my bed throw and even came away from traditional granny squares and did a couple of different ones with no help!

I need to do some more rag rugs as my material pile is massive, I also need to make the wraps for my skeins of wool and crochet hooks but this is kinda scary as I need to use the 'new' electric sewing machine I have and the very pretty material I bought!
I am still on the hunt for raw sheep and alpaca fleece to try and get some use out of my peg loom, so hopefully next spring I can make a rug and now I keep looking longingly at spinning wheels! Would love a loom too....

But I have been given a knitting machine by a very generous persoan and a very lovely and kind lady is going to come up and show me how to use it as I haven't got a clue!

So I think that is it for now....Oh and I am going to get some hessian sacks and have a go at a proddy rug and maike the girl's a rainbow wall piece for their room, by making the design onto the flat side rather than the shaggy side.

My job list seems to get longer and longer!!
