I'm also back in the rag rug making business. The swap is with 12 people, so I'm making 24 rugs--one oval 1" rug (which translates to a 4-foot rug in quarter inch terms) and one circular rug 1 1/2" in length. The green braid is ready to be sewn into the rug shapes while the yellow-orange and yellow-green floss are still being braided. I'm hoping to have these finished by next week.
So while it looks like I'm not making miniatures, I really am!
