Spring cleaning continued




I was afraid this might happen. The cloths that gave up the ghost shouldn't have been in that mix.  The repair will be an interesting enterprise. I have no intention of trying to crochet a fix.

This rug usually resides in front of the kitchen sink, folded in half.

No one need ever see the scar. I may have to back the whole thing with something to stabilize it.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Beautiful and worth fixing if you can.

So, I read this in the morning and it has been rolling around in my head--I like mending. so what came to me was making another little braided rug--the size of the hole-- and then stitching it in front and back to sturdy portions. I think it will work. And will work in future mendings. I love the rug itself--how nice to have something like it under ones feet at the sink!!!!!

Oh this would be so easy to fix. I would crochet a piece the size of the hole and stitch it into place. The whole rug is a magnificent example of crochet, colorful and happy, and a testament to your ability to craft such a thing. These are hard to make due to the length of time required and the hefty weight. I vote repair😊

TGIF even tho I only went back to work just yesterday.

My Swedish ivy is loving being back outside. I need to get some small pots to start a squad of offspring for gift giving. On sale at ...

Play it again Sam.
