So I did. I took it, cleaned it, and made it all pretty. And then I did this to it:
Here's what it looks like pinned together:
I guess it's true what they say: "We expand (or contract) to fit the rooms in which we find ourselves."
By the way, that little room on the left in the above picture? That's actually a kitchen, but a friend is renting it so she can play at mosaics. But when she comes in to work, she hates working alone, so she usually takes one of the areas I've got. She's in for a bit of a surprise if she comes in today, 'cuz I've got all three tables occupied.
Anyway, enough of that. Here's the next step in this "let's create a fabulous work of art out of a mop" project.
Below is a shot of a longer strip of mop threads. I sewed two dryer sheets together to cover the new dimensions. Then, for fun, I left some of the dryer sheet attached alternatively between the sewn lines. I have no idea how it will look after I dip it in wax.
And, oh yes, you see where I cut the dryer sheets away from the sewed columns? Don't think I just tossed them out. I'm saving THEM! I'll do something with them, trust me. (I swear, in another life I must have been a first class hoarder!)
