The weaving is not the only part of making a rag rug as I have often mentioned.
All the hours, days and weeks it takes to cut the rags. All the preparation of choosing rags that go together in one way or another, creating, planning, thinking, making.
The weaving itself.
And when the rug is free from the loom comes the time of finishing. Plaiting the ends and threading loose threads. It takes a while too. Second day now working on this one, a carpet made under "The Lord of the Rings". A cup of coco and some biscuits to go with it. Still listening to the "The lord of the rings". The evil has been conquered and life runs new with heavy hearts.
