Need time to be creative or I get a little EDGY!!!

I am working on a rug right now that is made with felted sweaters. 
I have sooooo many wool sweaters that I picked up in thrift shops over the last few years.  I have really been feeling the burden of having too much stuff lately but I can so relate to the poor souls on the Hoarding TV shows.  I just can't seem to part with any of my precious stuff!  So what I have decided to do with some of the sweaters is to cut them into one inch wide chunky "yarn" and crochet them into a rug.  The rug is working up really fast due to the size of the material and the large hook. I don't know what I am going to do with it when it is done.  My dogs really like it and want to lay down on it every time I put it on the floor.  Maybe I should market these things as dog beds?  I could just picture a big old Lab curled up on one!  I have done this before on a smaller scale.  See this post .  I just really needed to get working on something....I find that I get edgy or crabby or whatever you wanna call it if I don't have a project on the go.  Must use up the Hoard!!!!!
