I finished my first "real" rug today. Earlier, I practiced by making a little table runner size. I've wanted to make new rugs for my kitchen for the last couple of months, but had to put it aside, first, while the house was a wreck getting new flooring, then while I had conjunctivitis in both eyes and my face, then while I had a respiratory infection and lastly for Christmas. This one is in front of the sink. I made it 24" X 64", but now I'm thinking that I made it too long. I'm starting a matching one for in front of the stove, but probably not as long.
