March Apron of the Month

Yes, it's the last day of March and I'm just now reminding you
that the March Apron of the Month is posted
and there's a free pattern for it, too!
Yep, this is the back. . . .You'll have to
visit Heidi to see the front!
I love the way it drapes.
Hop over to Apron History 
and print out your free pattern!
Our Spring break is over. . . .Had a wonderful
week. . . .Nothing much got done. . . .
but then, that was the plan. . .
We're open for business again!
We have Rag Rug Looms ready to ship,
and I have one more Stitches In Time
book available.
The next few weeks, I'll be cleaning out
and reorganizing our real life
country store museum here at the farm. . . .
No telling what I'll find to sell online from there.
I'm pretty excited about the possibilities.
I'll keep you posted!

Debra's Rag Rug Reveal and Link to Weaving a Rag Rug

I'm a little late getting this link to you. . . .Debra emailed me last week. . . .She had finished her first Rag Rug! . . . and has revealed it on her blog: Frugal Little Bungalow. . . .Isn't it fantastic? . . .Love the colors. . . .I've experimented with various patterns myself but I think the simple stripe is my favorite--and much quicker to weave.

To read all about Debra's Rag Rug and view more photos, hop on over there and visit with her. . . .She has a special treat for you, too. . . .A link to a video series on Weaving Rag Rugs. . . .Don't miss that. . . .The instructions John sends with the loom will teach the basics but a video will explain the technique so much better. . . .I like visual aids, too.

Thanks so much, Debra, for sharing your first Rag Rug with us. . . .and the video link, too. . . .And, thanks from John and me for the Shout Out! . . .We do appreciate you!

Happy Rag Rugging!
