I promised myself I would try to post, if not every day, then at least several times a week. I failed. It happens. I will try to do better, and stop slacking. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s supposed to be super hot here in the next few days. We seldom see 100’s and rarely so early in the year. ย Knowing that this summer promises to be a hot one, we decided to move our bedroom, and office to our basement. That required disposing of 15 years and several families worth of belongings. I wish I had gotten pictures, but I didn’t. ๐Ÿ™

So, instead of posting I have been working on some rugs, trying to use up my extra yarn, helping grand kids make tie dye clothes, and sewing dresses for various parties and weddings.

The first picture is of a square rug, just a basic granny square, that I am making using small balls of yarn. I’m not worried about the knots being seen or how much of one color is used. The second picture is of a round rug that I am making. Each color is done as a single row, although it may be repeated elsewhere in the rug. The knots are hidden on the back and it will be coated with a non slip treatment. I plan on making it big enough for the front room. The room is 21 x 14, or the living room, which is slightly smaller. ย It all depends on when I get tired of working on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I guess I really haven’t been slacking. Just not writing.

How is your summer going? Are you keeping cool?
