rag rug

I have now changed to weaving in school, and the first project we have is to make something for the floor, and I am making a rag rug. It is really a traditional thing for me, I have grown up with having rag rugs in my home and I really like them, most of the people in my class think that rag rugs are quite boring and ugly things, things to have at the country house. But as I said, for me rag rugs are a natural part of a home, and they do really not have to be ugly. I am making a red rug with a baroque pattern in black to match my red bed drapes.

I have only woven the test and a bit of my hem, but things are moving forward and I expect to be able to start on the real pattern tomorrow
