I bought a huge sack of dyed roving at a yard sale a while ago and thought about what to make with it...bath mats? Yarn? I needlefelted a little bit for a soap holder. Done. Boring but pretty.

But this is awesome and I'm onto something: rugs. I made a bedside rug and know how I'll improve it next time: I'll use 5 layers of carded roving instead of 3, I won't let a baby chicken run into the middle of it and stomp its way out, I will roll and stomp on it instead of scrubbing and tossing in the dryer and I will block it to make it square. But this feels luscious underfoot!
