Quiet Friday: Rag Rug Finishing – Warped for Good How many people get to have a handmade article right under their feet? You come in from the world, with your feet dusty and weary; you look down, and the rug says, “Welcome home.” After the weaving is complete, the only thing left is finishing. For rags rugs, that means securing the warp ends, and finishing the ends with fringe or stitched hems. Adding Paracord to Water Bottles and another Paracord Can Koozie... Here are a couple of examples of adding paracord to water bottles. A 25 foot length was used for the one in a 'whipping' pattern on the aluminum water bottle. And a 40 foot length was used in a woven pattern on the white stainless steel water bottle. Both started off with coiling the cord around the bottles, with the starting end just held in place with a rubber band and later tucked to finish. The 'whipping'(snaking) version, an example is seen in Geoffrey Budworth's 'The Complete Book of Knots', is easily zigzagged and looped around a couple of coils on each end of the paracord coiled wraps, and tucked to finish.

The foundation (which is what you attach your first row of loops to) is not strictly required, but it is much easier to start with one than without as it provides an anchor/tension point for your netting. The traditional foundation is another loop of string, long enough to loop around your foot, or some other anchor point, and still allow your net to be at about navel-level (or wherever is most comfortable for you to have your hands) when pulled taut. This method is, as I mentioned, traditional, and a very portable and space-efficent way to net, but I have also found that the flexibility of this foundation can cause tension problems once you get going, and there are limits to the width of the piece you can make when using a string foundation loop. To Begin Your Net:
Bottle Reworking Link to Bottle Labels I consider bottle slumping to be one of the really boring activities in the world, but I will share some information about it since everyone who gets anywhere near a kiln seems to be interested in it for a while. The problem from my point of view is that unless one gets really creative, there are only a limited number of things one can do: stretch the bottle, flatten the bottle, make a spoon holder, make an ashtray. [Some people have made societal comment by arranging slumped bottle shapes in ways that suggest comment on mechanical and tired society - "Preacher and Choir", "Exhaustion", but that is more art than slumping, I think, and not me. 2002-07.] To change the form of a bottle all you need is an oven that can reach about 1400°F, which all pottery kilns and most glass annealers can do easily. For the result to survive cooling, either the kiln must lose heat especially slowly or there must be a controller that will take the temperature down slowly.

When i was getting all my ideas together for the DIY jewelry segment i did yesterday on fox4 this necklace wasn't even on the list, i was making some bracelets out of rope and then it hit me, nautical knot! I had seen a few nautical knot ideas on pinterest and i still have a huge roll of rope in my basement (its the rope i use for handles on my market totes), so i started playing around and its my favorite necklace i've made to date. I'm so happy to share this tutorial with you today! Seven amazing marble machines by Paul Grundbacher Paul from Thurgau, Swizerland, sent me some pictures of his marble machines. Paul writes: There is nothing to do in the garden in winter, so I have time to tinker. I only worked on one marble machine at a time, and when I had another idea, I continued building, without hurry and only when I felt like it. When I finished, I looked for new ideas and inspirations on the internet. I usually "plan" directly with wood, no drawings.
THE WALKING SITE - Frequent Questions Walking can provide the same benefits as a running program. General health benefits are aquired from any walking. For cardio benefits the key is walking fast enough to get your heart rate up. Constrictor knot History First called "constrictor knot" in Clifford Ashley's 1944 work The Ashley Book of Knots, this knot likely dates back much further. Although Ashley seemed to imply that he had invented the constrictor knot over 25 years before publishing The Ashley Book of Knots, research indicates that he was not its originator. Ashley's publication of the knot did bring it to wider attention. Although the description is not entirely without ambiguity, the constrictor knot is thought to have appeared under the name "gunner's knot" in the 1866 work The Book of Knots, written under the pseudonym Tom Bowling. in relation to the clove hitch, which he illustrated and called the "builder's knot". He wrote, "The Gunner's knot (of which we do not give a diagram) only differs from the builder's knot, by the ends of the cords being simply knotted before being brought from under the loop which crosses them.
