Being Domestic

Working on my current project: Caleb's rag rug.

(After a frantic phone call to Tabitha to make sure I had threaded her sewing machine properly.)

Anyone want to guess how long it's been since I last sewed? On a machine?

(A looooong while.)

Stack of old receiving blankets. . .

. . . and what I'm turning them into. Strips of soft, flannel fabric.

Sewing the strips together to make one long continuous strand. I have cut and sewn four blankets so far. I have nine to go. Whew!

I haven't begun to crochet yet, but I'm close. I decided on a rectangular pattern today. Hopefully I'll have time this weekend to start on the actual rug! :)
