Twining Again


Last week I finished a rug which had been on the frame for over a month. This rug, the twenty-fourth that I've twined, will be in the Fremont County Fiber Guild show at the Lander Art Center. Some of the Guild members' items will be offered for sale. The His and Her Aran Christmas stockings, two rugs, and two quilts (Duluth Stars and Down the Garden Path) are my contributions to this year's show.

While I love twining the rugs, I detest the mess that they create. Literally every surface in my house was covered with a layer of lint which the fabric strips slough off during the twining process, and all I seemed to do when I attempted to clean was move it around to another spot. Friday and Saturday I battled the elusive lint, and now the house is nearly lint free.

  3. I absolutely love the look of this rug. This style is so old-fashioned. It brings back fond memories of the ones I had growing up.

  4. As usual, I am behind on commenting! I do love all the work you have posted - the quilt, rug, baby blanket - and your Foreign Friday photo. I see you are staying busy. Is it cold in Wyoming yet? It has been cooler here in Texas - that's a good thing!
