A couple of weeks ago, Friend Brenda and I had a crafting weekend get-away. We loaded up ourselves and our stuff and drove about an hour away to a craft retreat center. There were 14 women there for two nights and three days. The others were all working on scrapbooking, but Brenda and I did our own thing. She made stamped Christmas cards.
A red and blue rug is for a girlfriend who is teaching a home ec/sewing class to our M. and some friends this year. The red/blue and green rugs are approximately 28" x 38". That size used about 13-14 adult sized t-shirts. I find the t-shirts at thrift stores (Bag sales help me get them for 25 cents each sometimes! But $1 each is a pretty good price.) I am also starting to beg my friends for their old, unused shirts. I can donate any that I can't use.
