In a former life...

What does a former lowly blanket look like when it gets re'New'd?













When I start on a new rug, I take a good look at the old textile that I'm using.  By cutting with a plan, I can use the former design to create a new one.  This blanket was a solid pinkish color with stripes on either end that were a buttery yellow.  As I wove this rug, a new pattern emerged that I think is rather striking!

~The blanket that was once hidden beneath the quilt on the bed is now the star of the floor ~  The workhorse, the plain jane, and the invisible deserve to shine!
