T-Shirt Surprise


I went to put on my favorite blue t-shirt, and realized it had holes in places that would have embarrassed me had I actually worn it in public ... but I knew it would eventually have a new life.

Several years ago I made some rag rugs with a handmade loom. I have been slowly cutting up my old t-shirts into strips in order to start making another rug.

I was cutting up my old beloved shirt, when I suddenly noticed one of those pesky holes was a heart! I dropped my scissors and reached for my camera ...

I hope life is treating you...I would love to see your hand woven rugs. I think it's great that you have the talent and patients to make them. I hope you weave this little heart in so you have to take a picture.

Wow--it's even more perfect than I imagined! I remember cutting all my old sox into strips and making a rug out of them--in fact, I think I saw it up in the attic when I was up there a few days ago!

Wonderful photo, Sissy! It fills my eyes. (grin)
