Rag Rugs in Literature

The carpet was beautiful, just beautiful.  The many different colored strips of cloth all blended into the prettiest carpet they had ever seen. They could pick out pieces of faded red that had been cast-off flannel petticoats, and a dull blue that was Ma’s old wool wrapper, discarded when it finally fell all to pieces.  The carpet was thick and soft and bright and it covered the bare boards of the floor from corner to corner, with only a space left clear by the hearth, for fear of flying sparks.

A bit of reality, here.  This is the current view of my desk.  The birthday marathon is finally over, (4 birthdays plus our wedding anniversary all in 3 weeks!! 😱). I had to take a break but now I'm back to work on all the projects that were on slow or no during those three weeks.  What is your space looking like today?

Does anyone else suffer the disintegrating sock syndrome?  I mean, seariously!  I buy socks for my boys and three weeks later they are in shreds!  Enter the handknit sock, because #handmadeisbetter.  Not only do they feel luscious on the feet, but they last longer, too!  I am using Knit Picks Stroll in the Train Station colorway to make these for one of said boys.  How about you?  Have you ever worn handknit socks?  How do you think they compare to store bought?

It feels good to have so many things checked off my list.  And what's more, to have made progress in putting routines in place so things run more smoothly on a regular basis.

It really is important to celebrate the wins, no matter how small they may seem.

He insisted on painting the planets for these Star Wars themed birthday streamers, instead of using patterned paper.  Which means these streamers are being glued together at the last minute because ... you have to wait for paint to dry! 😂  And by the way, this table is on the list for refinishing.  Any ideas?

I knew I wanted Instagram to be the social media platfrom that I focused on the most, at least for starters, and I knew there was something missing in the way I used it.  Enter Rosemary @rosemarywatson  Seriously!  The info this fantastic lady has put out there is making all the difference for me, so if you want to get some down-to-earth training from someone who's done it, and sweetens the deal with keeping it real, check out her feed and get her stuff!
