Sweet Liberty Crocheted afghan almost finished...and my new rug!

Just over a week ago, I showed you the area rug that I would be receiving from CSN Rugs. It was delivered yesterday by FedEx and promptly took its place in front of the fireplace.

How do you like it?

CSN area rugMy two youngest were having a good time dancing on it this afternoon, and loved how soft it felt between their toes. I have to agree with them. It does feel nice! It appears to be very well made and the binding on it seems to be very secure. Loose binding on an area rug is one thing I do not like about cheaper rugs purchased at my local mass merchandiser. And this rug was made right here in the the USA.

I was also impressed with the customer service I received from CSN. The contact I had with the company was always pleasant and productive. I had a feeling that I had dealt with them in the past, so I went searching through my old emails and sure enough, found evidence that I had indeed purchased from them before. When we were looking for outdoor wooden rocking chairs for our front porch, we found their beautiful Outdoor Charleston Rockers and we just love them.

So that's my plug for the CSN companies. Now after looking at this fireplace picture, I was reminded that I never did clean out the fireplace after winter was over. But if our current weather pattern doesn't change soon, I'll have to light up that log in the fireplace just to dry out the house!

I have been busy with other things though. The project that has been taking up most of my rainy day handwork time is the Sweet Liberty afghan I am crocheting for that upcoming memorial golf tournament and raffle I told you about recently. As soon as I hit the publish button on this post, I am going to sit in my chair and finish off the last round of the border, and it will be finished! I'll show you pictures of it complete in the next day or so.

And of course more preparations have been made for the Children's Quilting Class at the library, so I'll be updating you on that as well.

Now off to complete my first finish for the month of July!

Happy Stitching!
