The Tie Rug
So for sometime I have been wanting to make a tie rug for the kids bathroom out of my favorite pair of sheets that got holey. This project took more than one day, I worked on it for 3 to be exact, but am very happy with the results.
This project was an excellent practice on patience which is something I really struggle with as my ADD usual kicks in and I am one for wanting instant gratification. There is alot to be learned about powering through and seeing it completed.
For this project I used the following:
- King Size sheet, cut into 5in by 1in strips
- Misc left over fabric cut into 5in by 1in squares in this project I used a old pillowcase and an old t-shirt.
- non-skid rug backer cut to size
I then just randomly tied the strips of fabric to the non-skid mat.
I also took Frank for a walk in on the Pokegama Dam Ski Trails. Despite the gloomy weather it was a good day for a walk. Here’s Frank checking out the Mississippi River. I am pretty sure if I had let him off of his leash he would have launched himself off the side of the river banks.
The walk was a great way for me to mediate and clear my head and enjoy the nature and scenery around me. So full of inspiration and relaxation.
