The rug is awesome. I made some as a kid. I would add to if and make it huge and bold. The color combo is awesome.

I agree with lovesclutter, I think the rug looks great and wish I had an extra one on this cold, cold March night.

If it looks unbalanced, could it be that there is a large amount of lighter colors to one side more than the other?

Knocked out two more projects for a friend who gave birth yesterday. Used more of my fabric stashed - slowly but surley the pile will decrease!  Grin

Used about 2.5 yards making this baby blanket. The back side is minky so it's super soft!





And I made two extra long burp clothes and appliqued the baby's intital Smiley

13 projects completed so far - completely from stash items!  Shocked

texscrapper congratulations on your thirteen stash projects! Such thoughtful gifts for your friend too, you have been productive.
Kookaloo_Starr at this rate you will be able to keep half the babies on the planet warm and stylish; very beautiful work.
dulcet that rug is lovely; I have been planning on making a rug for quite some time, I may need to move it up the list of priorities after seeing such a nice example.
trinalocakary you have done a very good job, I especially like that you used take out trays!

RLB--it's not that the colors bug me, I actually really like the way they came out.  But I think the strips were too wide, so they came out very flat, which made the braid flat.  And the lacing skewed the braid.  SO, even though I think I know what the problem was, I'm not going rip it out all the way back to the beginning and cut the strips narrower and start over.   Tongue
