Summer Vacation - Stashbusting Style

Just back from a restful week at the beach, and an entire week without a sewing machine!  Not my style, as I usually pack the machine and a project or two or more for the road.  With a lot of time planned to be spent on the beach, I figured I'd take a break...

However, I took a project, a real stashbuster!  It says that a 2' x 3' rug would use approximately 8 yards of fabric, but truth be told, it uses much more than that.  I took a kitchen garbage bag with a good chunk of fabric with me and used all of it for this rug.  Fabric is cut into 2" strips and then crocheted.  Very easy, I had never crocheted before.

PS.  This rug is also a workout for your biceps. 

It's so good to be Home, Sweet, Home!

Fabric Incentive

Sometimes I use a little fabric fix as an incentive
to get a quilt finished up.  I have about 200 more
 flying geese to finish up this baby!

It's hard to see in the photo, but the top fabric
 has a metalic, shiny finish.

Have a great week!
