Wool Rug Braiding
I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head, but I just couldn't resist learning how to rug braid. My mom's neighbor, Cora, has been teaching the skill for many many years, and, at 87, she's an expert. So, the other weekend my mom and I walked through the woods to Cora's house to get me started on my rug. Yes, it was like a throwback to the 1800's...walking on a path through the woods to get together with the neighbor for some good 'ol fashioned rug braiding. Luckily, we didn't do it by candlelight.
