Canvas floorcloths...step 1

The first real step is going on line and getting a bunch of directions on how to make a canvas rug or floorcloth.  You'll get your list of materials and find that the first thing you have to do is find the canvas.  We called around to several types of stores and then John located a wonderful source in Anacortes...Canvas Outfitters....360-293-0542..Steve ordered us the widths we wanted and had it delivered right to our house!!  What a deal!!  We have the added bonus of living close to the sea and boatbuilding suppliers!!

Now we have our canvas...need to figure out how many rugs it will make....measurements..and more measuremets...this is why John is involved.  I just like to cut!!  You will notice the sunlight streaming through the windows as I am cutting the canvas!!  This was done two days ago in February....the sun was out along with the mountain!!  If you don't live here you just don't understand.
