IMG_4732                   IMG_4733     I think Katerina approves of my purchase.  It is a  sort of blue and grey mix rag rug.  Made from selvedge scraps  from the Pendleton Woollen Mills in Oregon.  What am I doing buying a rag rug you might ask.  Well, I no longer have my Glimakra loom to weave one myself, and I guess I just plain liked it.

What better way to supervise  my dinner preparations.  I don’t know how she got up there nor how she got down.  I think I now have a cat that can fly!
