Rug Update!

Well, here it is. My progress. It may not look like much, but there it is in all its glory. Respresenting a few hours.

 I have at least reached side-to side. I am now nearing the end of my 6 yards of strips and in my opinion, it hasn't stretched as far as I would like it to. That's just the way the cookie has crumbled.

First snag in the project- I went to buy more fabric and they didn't have the right color. When I made my initial purchase, there were 3 bolts. Overjoyed, I had to decided that I would try again, just hoping they would get another shipment. I am nearing the end of my stash and may just have to be at an unfortunate stand still.

On a brighter note, I purchased an extra latch hook hoping I could snag an unsuspecting crafter victim to help me. No real interests except for my kind-hearted mother. I am hoping I have warned her enough to the tedious-ness that this project entails. I may make its sound like a terrible beast, but in all reality, when you get into a rhythm it's quite a satifying project. So if you're interested.... :)

I keep thinking about it being finished, and how great it will look. For now, it's my ultimate motivation.
