While there, binding was completed on the checkerboard quilt ~
and we worked on a rug for Beth.
She received a few boxes of double knits around Christmas, and she cut 2 1/2 " squares. She drew a grid line on the base of the rug, also double knit, with a 1 inch line that continues around the oval.
We folded the squares into half square triangles, and laid them on top of each other. I sewed from the fold to the point, with about 1 half to 3 quarters inch of spacing- not really an exact science, here.
Larry's mom Barb has done a few of these "burr" rugs--is that what they are called?-- and Beth wanted to try it. I left it there for her to finish. Won't that be a nice rug to step out of the shower on?
I had a good Sunday at church. There was a guest speaker Sunday night and he really touched my heart.
Today, I've a bit of tummy troubles, so I've done chores, cooked and
enjoyed time with this knitting loom-sorry the pictures aren't so good. Lydia and Jeff both are doing these loom scarves, I wanted to give it a go...this is probably the closest I'll come to knitting.
The bright spot in my day is still getting to see this guy on the computer screen ~
*Sigh* I'll be glad to have him home on Friday night...!
