Mug Rugs

Mug Rugs!
All finished! not sure which I like the best. Some are kind of funky! Like the all red with a pink one. They were a lot of fun to do Next time I think I'll do a patterned warp vs just Twill. It was a multi colored warp but the end hand dyed yarns went by the wayside. Will after I get back to to  my light box put them on Art Fire for sale. I'm almost out of all the colors except a little bit of blue. There isn't enough of the off white to do anything with I am afraid. Used up some of the stash, next project is towels on the 4 shaft Norwood here. Fell in love with Thousand flower pattern,  Back in the 70s when I learned to weave and I think that is the pattern I'm going to use.

More finished work and more finishing to do!

Second Lace shawl I've completed this summer. I'm working on a second one just like this to put in the artfire shop. They are fun this one has one pattern row to every four rows so it isn't that challenging. Feather and Fan.
Finished my 10 yard warp with 31 mug rugs now to hem! We will be in Michigan for awhile longer as Dave is getting Cataract surgery and we would like to see our Grand son before he goes to Afghanistan. Ah well best laid plans.. At least now I can go to the Michigan Fiber festival! hehe evil laugh.
