Close up of sewn header

The white weft of the header ( doubled poly/cotton) with the multi colored warp really stands out on the dark rug. Had considered using navy, but now am glad I didn't. We are definitely keeping it, not putting it out for sale. Should be nice by the back door, with all the snow that gets tracked in, you won't see this one bunching up and getting stuck under the door.

Yooper Rug

This rug was finished on Dec. 28, 2007 and my first with a sewn header. It was made from denim and a heavy camouflage canvas material, hence the name Yooper Rug. Taken outside on the snow, there are no wavy white lines like in previous rugs, although the warp is a different color, also. Will have to rewarp with white as soon as the multi is used up,to test all the theories.

Slide show of our trip to Yellowstone in August.

Special thanks to Lori, for finding the cool, free hosting site and helping me learn how to set up a slideshow. I plan to redo this and put the photos in order sometime soon.

Green, brown, black and cream denin

I didn't keep the measurements of this rug, it is something like 28" x 40", and finished on Dec. 11. The colors don't show up as well as they should, the colors are warmer that they appear, with brown headers and the colored warp.

First try with colored warp

Another denim one, it measures 28 1/2 " x 38 1/2 ' and was finished on Dec. 5, 2007. The next one will have the rags cut thinner, it is very heavy.
