Funny Farm

A fearsome foray into my fiber follies. I talk about weaving, knitting, spinning and dyeing. Some chatter about the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

Love the rugs - and the cat! BarnE is nearly as beautiful as Barni :-)

The rug is wonderful. Color chips - does that mean you dyed the rags or searched for fabric in those hues?

I can't believe your cat has a wood rooster for a friend. We have one. Charlie has never given it a second look. I put the rooster on his bed to see what happens.

Carol, is one of your "mogs" Barni? I didn't realize that.

Sharon, I dyed the rags to attempt matching the color chips. Quite a job, thus pulling out my hair!

My Gawd... these are beautiful!!! I've been "off the grid" lately because Granddaughter is in Charleston and I've been going back and forth.
