If you haven't shopped for rugs online lately, plan on spending a lot of time. There are hundreds of them. This one screamed bring me home the minute I laid eyes on it.
It's bright, whimsical, off sets Buttercup to full advantage and doesn't take itself too seriously. It was also priced pretty nicely too.
And don't you know one good rug leads to another. I had grown tired of my blah sewing salon rug and figured why not have something bolder and more interesting?
I found this one on Wayfair, also on sale and with free shipping. The old rug will get recycled into the basement like all old rugs do.
There has been a lot of weaving related stuff going on. Placemats hemmed and ready for gifts,
new warps being woven on. I am loving these sheep towels.
They are the perfect combo of intense concentration when doing the sheep and easy and fast plain weave through the body of the towel.
Buttercup has her last rag placemat warp on, although......they are fun to weave.
I'm thinking maybe a cotton log cabin rug run after this. Haven't decided but you can be sure she won't be warp-less for long.
I was supposed to be unveiling the new big 56" Macomber "Mongo" but due to UHaul's crappy vehicle which never made it out of Ashland Wednesday, we will all have to wait until next week when we try again. Humpf!
A few pretty new cottons made it into the salon last week too.
There are a lot of really lovely blue's this year in the fabric lines so I guess I'm stocking up. A lightweight denim also made it into stash for about a day and is now on the sewing table being transformed into summer trousers.
I found some wonderful new project bags on Etsy, of course! These two are destined for loom parts.
The badger for the Macomber and the gnomes for the Rio Grande. The maker is here and she has some fabulous designs, all very nicely priced.
Around the farm everyone is getting into the summer vibe.
Terriers gotta dig.
Horses nap in the late morning sun.
Dogs get walked.
Dogs get compared to roasts.
Flowers bloom regardless of neglect.
And since the start of summer is always sweetest, here is a fitting song. When was the last time you heard it? I know it''s been a lotta years for me.
Parting shots: Mus relocation program. On their way to new woodsy digs.
