Fish or Cut Bait - Weaving

People in the Midwest sometimes ask a person whether they intend to fish or cut bait.  This winter I have been clearing, cleaning and organizing rags for rugs.  

I have been cutting the seams out of garments so they are ready to cut into strips and sew into long strips.

Here is a pair of corduroys - seams and pockets removed
I took a dyeing class

And now, finally I have begun weaving.  So far I have the space for fringe and have just started the body of the rug.  Hurrah.  I am not just a "cut bait" type after all!
