what else to call a piece that has been woven under the influence of "The lord of the Rings" than Lord of the Rings? If you have better suggestions let me know.
I am still toiling on the rug. I get bewitched by plaiting and threading, my right shoulder is burning and aching but still I can't stop doing it! Madness but still entire happiness. I have put an icepack on my shoulder every evening since beginning this toiling of finishing the rug. I do my physiotherapy moves for sore shoulders and I am fit again in the morning to start dealing with the threads.
Madness can be a delight
Here are a few shots of the rug where it is piled up in my working space on the floor.
And one of the balls of rags (balls of fire I was thinking) before they became Lord of the Rings.
