I spent another few hours working on the rug today, and I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere. Here's a picture from when I started today:
And then, approximately 3 hours later (give or take):
Mind you, I only braided today...I didn't sew the braid to the rest of the rug, just looped it around so I could see how the pattern looked. Sewing the braid on will be a project for another day.
I like to watch it take shape...and I get VERY excited whenever it's time to change to a different color. :)
Thane doesn't share my excitement.
