Now that I'm finally done with chocolate, I'll share other stuff I've been doing. I have been working on a bracelet design and learning to use a snowflake frame. Neither has been working out! I'm half way through another book tutorial, this one is an accordion style with a secret!
So I thought I would go in a completely new direction. I am trying to make a big soft basket or a rug. Today I bought 20 yards of cotton cording for the base from Beverly's Crafts here in Santa Maria. They had several sizes but I got the 1 inch diameter cording. It is very soft so it would probably be better as a rug. At first I thought of using some cotton yarn for the weaving. Now I'm thinking of tearing up some fabric that I bought a couple years ago to make rugs with! It was under $3 a yard so that isn't to bad. There are also a lot of bed linens that need to be recycled.
Right before the wedding I bought a toothbrush rug tool so I may try that method. There is a nice video on making toothbrush rugs.
Always too many projects! We will see if I can make rugs this week!
