My little projects from the lunch with MaryJane Butters ~

Here's what I've accomplished with my rag rug.
Girls. This is just TOO MUCH FUN! And how precious is this turning out??
My sweet neighbor at my table, Teddy had such a complementary fabric to my pink fabric that we traded some strips and look at how they look together.



Pages from MaryJanes Stitching Room Book telling all about rag rugs . . .

My tatting! Just three little loops!

I would love to be able to make this wonderful tatted necklace with vintage buttons. The photo below is from MaryJane's Stitching Room by MaryJane Butters

Wow, Dawn! Thanks for reminding me...I have a huge bag of my Gramma's strips (buried somewhere in the craft supply room!)that I need to get out. Also, I've been contemplating getting that book~~it looks wonderful! Hmmmm...maybe a Christmas present to myself!

Dawn- It's beautiful! I can't get over how much you've done already! I'm still tatting. :)
I'm off today to the thrift stores to get more sheets to make my rug with. I wonder how many it would take to make a rug for the living room? NOT!!

Your tatting is lovely! (I'm a shuttle tatter, but the result is just so pretty no matter which way you do it.) And I have an in-progress crocheted rag rug that looks like yours. I feel so "thrifty" using up old fabric this way!

The necklace is my favorite project in the book, but I also liked the simplicity of the pincushions made out of old tin molds too. It's a lovely book!

I wish I had a pretty little blog like this one , but all I do is complain 'cause that's what my boring life is all about. Things to complain about and nothing to do.
Anyway all sunshine and smiles.
In everything turn turn turn
there is a season turn turn turn
And a time for every purpose...
I didn't know that was from the bible.
flowers like lilies and lavenders none too dramatic
none too red
