Denim, Denim, and more Denim!

 I've been slogging away at building up my denim inventory.  And use up some of the huge stash of denim jeans...  Just took off a roll of hemmed edge rugs - will get these hemmed up sometime this week.

In the background of this picture, you see a pile of denim and a 'mental health' rug.  I get bored with denim after a bit, and so I have to do something different - That one on top is a flannel shirt, and old blanket bits that seemed to work together.  Using up stash!   :)


 Here's my next 'mental health' rug.  Corduroy!  Went with 4 different blues -  navy, dusty, lavenderish, and a light teal.  Then I threw in a tan neutral.  This one will be fun!


I'm doing stripes - 8 shots of weft for each color and then repeat.  I think it's cute.  Decided this one would be 'busy' enough so I did a hemmed end - something I do rarely.  I don't know, I think my preference is fringes, so I just don't think of doing the hems, until I remind myself that some of my customers prefer hems!

House update.  I'm talking with a couple, trying to come up with a way for me to get what I need for the house, and a way for them to get into it! 

I spend my days rehabbing my hamstring repair, selling personal belongings in preparation of moving from a 5 bedroom house into a bedroom, and weaving.  Sometimes I feel positively lazy....

All for now,  JULIE

  1. That is a lot of Denim, it makes the best rugs! I like hems best myself, I think it gives a longer life to the rug. I wish you luck on selling your house soon!
