One of the things I didn't know about blogging was that
you would meet friends from all over the world and that
as they shared their lives, how my life would become enriched.
When I was starting to get my feet wet and wanting to be a rug
hooker I started going to rug hooking sites. One of the gifted
ladies I ran across was a blog named Cotton-eyed Jo takes a look at life.
She does beautiful rugs. She also does beautiful hand work.
She was going to start dyeing wool and she had a give away that
Yesterday I received my palate. It is called Blue Violets. The picture
doesn't do justice to the beautiful colors.
I love the way this wool feels and I find myself petting it.
How in the world will I ever cut it up and use in a rug I have
no idea. I see why now that ladies go to the trouble to dye
their own wool. I didn't know why before. I asked my friend,
Kim why and she told me that it was to get the richer colors say in a flower.
I really need to take a class so I could get this stuff down. I am learning
and that is all that matters, right?
I just thought I would share this beautiful wool. I hope
you had a wonderful day.
