I've been absent for a while.
I was taking care of my mother.
One of the things I did while sitting with her was to make small projects. I have a ton of hexagons made for a future quilt for my soon-to-be-here granddaughter. I also crocheted a small, circular throw rug.
I made it from the small strips of fabric that result from cutting 2 1/2" strips on the AccuCut machine. I love little strips. They have so many uses!
I should have counted how many strips it took to make this rug. I can tell you that it was about a grocery sack full, if that helps. So, you might need to save strips for a while if you decide to make one. Unless, of course, you do an inordinate amount of cutting. Then it should go zippy-quick! I used a size N, or 10 mm, crochet hook to make this rug. It's a perfect size for crocheting (approximately) 1/2" strips and does not make large holes.
This one happens to be made from strips from Mary Engelbreit's Attitude Girls line. I think it turned out rather nicely.
This rug will rest on the floor of my guest room, where it will not be stepped upon too often. It is a sweet reminder of time I spent with my mother, me crocheting and her watching my progress until, at last, it was done. She smiled and told me she loved it. But, then, she said she loved everything I made.
I miss her.
