Sometimes these 4 day weeks seem longer than a normal 5 day week. To say I am happy it's Friday is an understatement. Time to catch up on life and some much needed sleep :)
I finished the binding on "A true friend". This fun pattern is by Cammie Bruce - Primitive Junky. She has so many great patterns. I refer to it as my Ellie rug since I hooked it to her likeness.
For the first time, the last two rugs I've bound I used #8 cut wool strips. I trim the backing to about 1 1/2" and zigzag the raw edges. I then fold it over twice (to the front of the rug) and baste. Basting is not necessary, but I prefer it to working with pins and I don't have any clips that I could use. Then I just bind with the wool strips. I really like the look. I've used the same prep when whipping with wool or doing the crochet edge. It really is quite simple.
After almost 4 days I have not heard from the give-away winner, so a big congrats to Kim, My Field of Dreams, out in California. Please send me your snail mail address and I will get your package mailed next week.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
