Design Wall and Stash Report

Well, I survived the first week of school; there was even a little crafting.
I have made enough color-coordinated string diamonds to lay out a sample large diamond, or most of it.  This is my take on the Santa Fe String Star from Bonnie K. Hunter.  My plan is to use a solid gray as the background for the star, and I'm not sure about the border yet.  I think I like the possibilities.
And I finished a knitting project, for the first time in a long time.  This is my second Circle of Fun rug made out of many strands of cotton or linen from thrift store sweaters.  It's nice and squooshy and is going to be the new bathmat in my bathroom.
