Rag Rug Update

I'm having a good time and learning a few things
 I'll do differently next time. It's at 20 inches across right now.
Still a ways to go.
 Sure wish I had found exactly the colors I wanted,
but these will do for a learning experience and first run at it.
 I'm looking forward to standing on it
with my bare feet when it's done!

Rag Rug Beginnings

Crocheted Rag Rug
(Photo from Flickr Group linked below...NOT mine)

I spent all day yesterday on a new crafty endeavor. 
First, I hit several thrift stores, Goodwill, Big Lots, etc.,
 searching for cheap cotton sheets to use for this project,

 and then about 8 hours preparing and ripping and 
rolling the sheets 
you see above. Make no mistake..
.this takes hours upon hours. It isn't as quick as you'd think
 just to get prepared to do the actual crocheting,
 but if you go in with the mindset that this is part of the 
whole process and is to be enjoyed just as much as the rest, it'll help.

I didn't find the colors I wanted, but I was looking for 
cheap sheets to use for my first project.
 If you have lots of money to blow on sheets, 
you can be more picky about your colors, 
which I may do later if it's something I really enjoy.

I got my information and inspiration in the link provided in
