000_2376I may have taken on one of those projects that you think will be really fun and then realize that it may just take you 5 years to get it done.  I was at a cabin in the north woods a few summers ago and there was this fabulous rug in the main room.  It was so soft on the feet and made the room feel so cozy.  I have always wanted to make my own since I saw that one.  So a couple nights ago the project started.  I bought about 18 yards of wool at a discount store–black, orange, and a pale green.  I am cutting it into 3 inch strips and braiding it.  As I go, I am using some mighty strong thread to weave it together.  I think it will be so cool when it is done, but it might take me a while to get there.  I’m also beginning to think more on the realistic side…black wool with a yellow lab is maybe not a good mix.  hmmm…  The husband keeps giving me doubtful looks, but I will forge on, and on, and on, and on….
