There were four of us as you can see by the photo on the left. The others were a tiny bit larger than mine but maybe because I braid rather tightly. I guess I was trying to be sure it wouldn't come undone unlike my knitting which can practically fall off the knitting needles. Not a good thing.
I'm not sure I will make another one. I really wanted one bigger. In fact, at one time I wanted my entire house carpeted in braided carpet. But I can see why it would be so expensive as these rugs took a lot more fabric than you would imagine.
Here is an interesting picture I took last week. This picnic table was sitting under a tree. We've had so much snow lately and the temperatures were so cold that it the snow piled up to about eight inches.
Then the sun came out. The snow on the tree started melting but the temps were still extremely cold and the little icicles formed upside down from the dripping water in the tree. Very strange. I've never seen this before. Too funny.
A trip to Costco today freed me of a lot of money. We bought mostly canned goods and pet food. Yikes. Prices have certainly gone up. We usually head there about once a month so other than fresh fruits and veggies, we don't have anything to buy at our local stores. Maybe a fresh loaf of bread now and then. And of course a freshly made donut at our favorite grocery store.
Nearly Spring! Take heart. Get your seeds ordered, get the house cleaned and it won't be long until we can all be outside. Yeaaaaaaa!
