PROGRESS AND NEW WOOL
Just a small amount of progress on my rug this week. I had such a busy week at work..never got home before 8:3pm on one single night. UGH!! I hate weeks like that...I am hoping this week will be better. I am a bit under the weather today..must have caught a bug yesterday...can't seem to get out of bed without feeling nauseated. I did start on the "blue" flower last evening.
I finally received my beautiful green hand-dyed wool that I purchased from ebayer: double-m_sheep_and_wool. She has really nice wool offerings and she usually has two or three pieces, in the same dye bath, but different textures. I can't wait to use it. I think it is a better choice for my leaves in the pattern. I hadn't been to the second hand store in a couple of months, but yesterday, I went on a whim looking for wool. I found two really, lovely Pendleton skirts and of course, both 100% wool. I love the soft green plaid and think it will look great in a nice spring patterned rug. Now...the lavender plaid...I'm not so sure. I could probably overdye it..but I think I'll felt it for now and see how it turns out. I bought each piece for 90 cents. Quite a beautiful find!
