Several (or more - I've lost track) weeks ago I got it into my head that it would be fun to make braided rugs. I've got all sorts of fabric stockpiled from when I used to quilt a lot, and I "inherited" fabric from my late maternal grandmother, who also quilted and sewed clothes for us when we were little and appreciated home-made clothing. She also knitted and crocheted and drew and painted and played piano. Oh - and she also made some rugs. There was a great big braided rug under the kitchen table, for one...and I remember she also dabbled in rag rugs - the knotted kind that are shaggy on top and bumpy on the bottom.
Anyway, I thought - hey! I know how to braid! I'll braid some rugs!
