Little Blue Bird

Once I ran out of twill tape for binding the back of my rugs I decided to use strips of wool from the heavier yardage in my collection...is very easy to manipulate and is especially nice for curves and circles...
9" Little blue Bird Mat
The colors in this mat just didn't photograph well...it's really very old looking...
FYI: it's for sale, $35 including shipping!

Kelley, I love your little "kitz" even if they aren't mine. I feel like I am getting to know them through you.

Kelley - I think you should do a picture tutorial on how you make your wool strip bindings - I'd love to know how to do that!

Jan,

I am so happy you're following the adventures of these two...wish I could get some pictures of them in action...Olivia is just a hoot...the little Chester shadow...he's so good with her now, always letting her jump on him and play with his toys...and if he cuts in and wants petting or brushing she just moves to the side and leans on him...

Gayle,

that's a good idea...and since I'm finishing the sampler rug I'll be able to do it over the next few days...
