Planting and Organizing!

I have been so busy organizing rug fabric, playing around with plants and spending time with my fairy garden, I haven't had time to make anything new. Here's what I have been up to:

I organized all my fabric into "Made to Order" rug kits! Pick a color scheme, size and shape, before you order your toothbrush rugs. Each kit has been bundled together with a note (for me) to remember all of the details. It took a lot of work to get it all done, but all the fabric will be so much easier to find now!

Here are some of my favorites:
Autumn Bouquet

Forget-Me-Knots

Silver Leaves

Soft Dreams

Sweet Sally
I'm not sure what I love more about making rugs, naming them or the adventure of never really knowing what the finished rug will look like until I am half-way into it. Fun Stuff!

And speaking of fun....Here's an arrangement I made from a few succulents, an old Christmas tree stand and an awesome pitcher type container with holes (I have no idea what it is for). I picked it up in a shop while on an artwalk.

Tinkering around with a new website!

Nest Depot

Making rag rugs creates a TON of thread piles. Because the fabric is torn, strings hang off the strips of cloth. Cleaning them creates piles!

I found something to do with mine!

I will leave them for the birds, to create nests. I came up with this theme, and converted one of the molds I use for fairy garden store fronts.

I hope the birds enjoy it as much as I do!
