I made this thing
Little known fact: after Greenfield Village this year, my rugs were home to a few wriggling buddies. Which of course spilled all over me when I opened the door to my trailer a week later. (My Dad and I both jumped back in horror-so disgusting!) Those heavy fabric things had seen better days; between mud and bugs, I woefully bid them ado. Then I wondered what I would put on the floor of my tent fly! Along came this workshop, which would address the (now) health issue...
Spread over two days, Virginia and Randy gave wonderful advice, hands on techniques, and research to support their designs and process. Let me just say that when someone hands you documentation at the beginning, you know you'll like it! It was a good time to let my creativity out and about.
They were beyond helpful. Every question answered! And when I (inevitably) messed up lines, Virginia fixed them. She has the steadiest hand I have ever seen. I was so grateful for their help, as the finished product was a spectacular bit of work. The other members of the class were kind and patient; you had to be in order to finish that project! It was such a pretty array of floor cloths when they were all finished.

Between the floor cloth class, moving, and too many family birthday parties in a row, I may be due just a bit of a break from posting. Just kidding! I have a beadwork post that I'm pretty excited about, and will be rolling out of the blog once my wrist stops hurting so much...
