This was by far the largest stencil I have cut. It took me about 2 days to cut. It was really hard to get pictures of the finished product due to lighting. Hope you guys like it as much as I do.

Thanks! I guess I just needed a second opinion. It's working out fine although it is still a lot of work, lol. I post some pics of the finished rugs as soon as I have them.
3  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / cleaning wool strips for braided rugs? on: November 04, 2011 01:35:07 PM
So in cleaning my garage recently I found probably around 50-70lbs of 100% wool strips ready to be made into braided rugs. My grandmother used to make these and this was her stash. The problem is they've been sitting there for so long they smell musty and have a ton of dust, drywall dust and even some mud (wtf?) on them. I'd like to wash them before I get started braiding but these seems like a huge task and I'm really sure the best way to go about it.

The best I could come up with is soaking them (in a mesh bag) in cold water int he washer, doing 2 spin cycles and then popping them in the dryer with no heat. I know they might felt a little but that's okay. I don't have a clothes line to air dry and the image of having streamers of wool strewn about the house drying seems amusing but a terrible idea.

Does this method sound reasonable? Any other suggestions?

Whew! Also grateful for the extension here. I have a few small items done but I'm still working out my plan for a large. Also Lady Lovecraft and I live in the same city so we decided to meet in person to exchange our goods. I'm pretty excited about meeting her. I haven't met many people from craftster before.

NEAT! I had thought about making dreads with I-cord but I didn't want to put in all that work without a good idea of what it would look like. So thanks! I may do this now.

Things are going slow but steady. I don't have anything completed yet but several things started. I have all day tomorrow to craft so I think I'll make a lot of progress then.
