In the meantime, I've taken my skinny scraps and selvages and made a 'yarn' ball. I just need a large crochet hook to make a rug. I knitted the last one and really like it, but I'd like to try crochet this time so I can see the difference in the two and decide which I like best.
Our tie quilt was up today at church! It is what our quilting group made from members' donations of ties.
It is hanging in one of the hallways in the upper atrium of our new addition. The plan is to add some vinyl lettering above it, "Blessed Be The Tie That Binds."
