I named this rug "Eartha" for her earthy colors.  And yes-Eartha is a name.  Remember Eartha Kitt?

There are 8 and 1/2 t-shirts, a piece of fabric, and part of 2 sheets in this here little 36 inch in diameter rag rug.

I'm really starting not to mind cutting up the tees by hand.  I start at the bottom and cut round and round in one continuous piece.  I just cut right through the seams.  I'm getting pretty good at being able to use nearly all the fabric which is nice.

My rhododendron has opened up nicely and I suspect it will be in full bloom soon. 

PS-I saw my first robin of the year on Friday!

Have a nice Sunday.  :)

Eartha is pretty - she looks like something from the Caribbean islands.

Eartha is pretty. It's a cold snowy day and I am sitting here with my Gilmore Girls. Hope you have a great Sunday!!

Oh my how pretty Eartha is! Have you started selling them yet Holly? Where can i buy one?

Those rugs just gobble up fabric. I'm amazed by it. I think my rug-making days are a thing of the past though -- either I have sudden arthritis in my fingers or I've strained them too much from hooking. How can you keep making rugs and still bend your fingers?

My hands do get stiff and sore-I especially feel it in the morning. Then they loosen up and I'm good to go!
