Hack It To Pieces!

I finished the first step of making my Stash Buster rug today. Here it is, off the guild's loom and laid out on my bed. The way this rug is woven, on the next loom, the color blocks you see will be broken up and small portions of them will be distributed randomly throughout the rug.

Here is a close-up of a small section of the total piece. The vertical channels you see are then cut down the middle.......

..........which are then rolled into balls to prevent tangling as they await their turn on the next loom where they will be re-woven into a thick and cushiony rug.

Stay tuned for further developments.
