Learning Can Be FUN

Tails and a cute. The post is not in the best order, but you get the jist of it!!
This is the rug braiding today we were not hookers, we were braiders!
Don't let anyone tell you that learning can't be fun...we had a ball. It's so fun to gather
with a group of ladies that you know...but not that well...and then by the end of the day you feel as if you have known them forever.
This is us "tying our tails" onto chairs. The hardest part is deciding on what colors to use, it is all like eye candy. We learned how to braid with wool and strips of cotton cloth. I guess the second hardest part would be sewing that little thing together...and not having your stitches show! Sorry Lori, I really tried to hide 'em...maybe just a little more practice! But they all turned out really nice. I do not for see doing a large braided rug anytime soon, but the little mats are great...for candles, candle warmers and what not.
I hope that everyone has a nice Sunday, I am working the shop tomorrow, so I will
not talk to you again 'prolly till Monday.
Have a blessed day.


  1. It does look like fun, Robin. Gosh, I sure wished I lived closer...

    One of these days I'm going to try to braid so I can trim a hooked rug. Braiding the whole rug would be a challenge I'm sure!

  2. It WAS fun!! I finishedd my rag rug mat tonight.

  3. Hi Robin, what a neat class...looks like lots of fun too. Your first rug is great, I like the color choices and your next one is going to be pretty too. Enjoy creating these little pretties.... hugs, Linda
