Rug making

We're planning on painting the kids' room this week-end.  We've had some amazing weather here in Ohio...It's been so mild.  Windows open kind of weather.  But that's all supposed to change this week-end so we figured we'll get it done before we get caught up in doing things outside.
Here's what happened today....
 And just for some perspective....
 Both my kiddos are afraid of thunderstorms.  So spring is always a little dicey :)  It's been a good time to work on the rug I mentioned in the previous post.  I'm actually a little bit farther along now but I'm really happy with it! I decided to start with some white rope...for the rest I'm using fabric I have on hand.
 I think it will serve the purpose --Hide the ugly carpet that's on the floor!  There's actually hardwood under the carpet but I'm restraining myself.  Our house IS up for sale even though we've had 0 showings.  So we're not going to go there.
Thanks Helen for the great idea!  If this one goes well I may have to try another....

  1. Rachel, what a great idea to use rope. I would have never thought of it. I am (making a decisive commitment) going to do a tutorial on my rug), but you can never have too many rugs, they go everywhere. On hardwood, on carpet, on lino, on tile and you can change the color theme of a room with one. What size crochet hook did you use? I haven't been able to find just the right size for me yet. Good job, and your house will sell when it is meant to.
