Paint a rug party II - progress


Well, I managed to get the easy part finished this week. I used outdoor craft paint and fabric medium and painted this late one night, hence the terrible picture.

I plan this cheat...

in pink for the main part of this rug.

I'll be honest, I am terrified. I fully expect to mess this up.
FYI, I think "rug" is a funny word and I am not fudging the timeline. This is actually all I have done.



Check out the progress in rug land!

Why is that cheating? I think it is smart. Rug is a funny word. I am right there with you in real time. Procrastination is the key to all group projects.

English is a funny language. :-) You're ahead of me, I've only painted one corner before running out of paint.

Kerry,

So far so good! I can't wait to see the end results. I'd be afraid to even try something like this! :)
