A Few New Things

I am a bit bored of my current projects so need a break.  So I decided to make a rag rug.

I bought the Ric Rac pattern and got some inexpensive fabric and got started.  It is very addictive and is about half the size I want it to be at the end...but it grows quick.

Some of the strips of fabric

I also went my favourite shop in Ballarat...Ballarat Patchwork. I didn't leave empty handed.
I also shopped online at material obsession. I joined the fabric club (two of them) and I got some templates for my next project.

I just couldn't decide which one I liked better so got them both...and you can never have too much fabric


  1. No you can never have too much fabric! I made a Queen of the May block once! It's a very pretty block! Your rag rug is going to be great! Is it plaited?

  2. Hey V, I knew you had been to the ballarat shop - as M is going to make the rug as well!! as one was being made on the day and we had a demo! Luv your new patterns - didn't think you needed more fabric - what about the shed full you have already - that can be your new year challange - "use up the fabrics in your stash" Happy birthday for last Saturday!!! xxxx Helen F
