Got some more done for today’s post… Hooray! 🙂
I am really happy with the motif colours I get to use on this piece so far!!!!! For me…nothing is more fun than experimenting with wool colours!!! 🙂
And I am happy so far with the background-border colours. These two are simply mill-dyed plaids right off the bolt. No overdye! I got used to using off-the-bolt plaids and buying hand-dyed wool from others after moving to the West coast into an apartment. At home in Vermont, I dyed a lot of my own wool…but living in an apartment where a dye mistake could mean paying for a whole new kitchen stopped me there!!! Yeeks! (I think I did “marry” some worms but that was it.)
Now, I have a lot of wool so I use mostly what I have with plaid purchases from time to time for backgrounds!!! I’ll get back into the dye pots again while I’m here in my own home!
Now the border wool (to me, it looks “cool”) is shown at the top of my progress on Day 2…you can see how it is hooking up in the border. Since the plaid had some colours I am using in the design, I thought it might work…! I’ll be able to tell better after I have done more on the rug and a bit more on the border…we’ll see if I keep it.
……….Happy New Year and Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
