I think I've caught something from Susan. I've been finishing up projects that have been hanging fire for a long time.
This is a rug crocheted with heavy rug yarn that I made to blend in with the runner we have in our long, narrow entryroom.
I keep a rug in this room as a place for winter boots. The boots come in basically clean but most often covered with snow and/or wet.
The door you see here leads to our unheated enclosed porch. In the summer, work boots and muddy shoes are left out there on the porch, but in the winter boots are kept in the (heated) entryroom so they aren't frozen solid when we put them on to go outside.
To get this shot, I was standing in front of the door (at the opposite end of the entryroom) that leads to our attached garage.
Next project (which I started last night before toppling over sideways on the couch) is to make another rug just like the recently completed one, but a little smaller. It will go across from the new rug, in the spot where we keep our granddog's dishes. The pictured multi-colored rug is a crocheted one I made, too, but is falling apart and now doesn't match the decor of the other rugs. (Obviously, we can't have that. I mean, what would Martha say?!) This little rug has done its duty and deserves to look a little worse for wear. It has to be at least thirty or thirty-five years old!
