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!!
