My mission, if I chose to accept it....

Got this sad little rug in the other day.

 My mission was to see if I could save her/him.

It had some sentimental importance, I guess.

I believe they said they had gotten it in Mexico.  It looks like it was probably woven tapestry style.

The warp was jute and the weft was wool yarn of different types along with shots of jute, for strength, I'm assuming.

 I think the mission was accomplished!

The rug is significantly smaller than the original.

I had to unweave far enough into the rug to get fringe long enough to knot. 

It's a cute little rug again.  She kinda got a facelift tonite!

  1. That's why I don't weave fringe on rugs. It wears off when it's walked on - a complete design flaw.
