The doily rag rug is done!

This was definitely one of those "because there's a free pattern and I've got the materials and it looks like it might be fun" projects. Would I do it again? Maybe. The same designer has a free pattern for a bathmat with a cable. Would I try that one? Not this week. Knitting lace with the strips of fabrics was challenging. I'm not sure I'm up to cabling with them.

My joins aren't quite right and and the long edge is a bit wonky, but I'd be willing to bet that I can block this thing into submission and bury those poky little ends deeper into the fabric once I get motivated enough.

For now, I've got embroidery to do.

I still think it is a fabulous idea and I do like the looks of it when it is finished.
