This will be a carpet/ (rug) for my miniature house.
It's a trial run for me on the new loom that my darling hubby bought for me on his trip to England last year. I eventually found time to warp the loom and 'go-for-it'.
I'm experimenting with the loom to see how it handles making 1:12th scale rugs, so I chose a simple straight weave for this rug in a two colour chunky stripe.
I have actually done about double the amount that is showing on the photo, and hope to have it finished by this weekend (famous last words, haha).
And there is always a bit of crocheting going on in this house.
A pair of finger-less mittens for wearing while riding my bike (winter is coming here in the Southern hemisphere).
My Raleigh bike -- very retro, lol.
I use this to get to my local craft groups meetings and for a jaunt around the town or to the library and also for grocery shopping. I try to do my bit to save the earth and not use fuel if I don't have to. If the weather is really horrible though I will take the car.
I'm designing a double-pannier bag to sew for the back rack. I have the perfect fun fabric to compliment the bike colours.
(the basket balancing on 'his' handlebars is the basket for the front of my bike)
Next week I'm off to a remote stitching retreat, so I might not get a post posted here because I don't think there is internet where I'm going, and no telephone signal either, so it will be a very interesting (and fun) week with a great bunch of stitchers. I am sooooo looking forward to it.
I'll show photos etc after the event.
All for now.
