New Wool

My wool order is here, Yippy!  Aay the joy of new wool!

The other side of the table is just as full and I have this really nice photo showing all the beautiful wool, but, the system won't let me post it.  No photo for you to see, sorry.

A couple weekends ago I bought some great tables at a local yard sale.  I painted the legs black to match the rest of the furniture.  As you can see they are already buried underneath a ton of wool.  I am pleased with how it all looks.  The new wool is so fabulous. 

Can you find Otis, my beagle?  His back legs are showing.  They enjoy hanging out with me in the wool room.  

Don't forget this Saturday the Hands and Hearts Antietam Fiber Artist Hooking Guild will be meeting at the Boonsboro Free Library in Boonsboro, MD 11:00 to 2:00.  Hope to see you there. 

I almost forgot.  Our guild is hosting a three day workshop with Kris Miller in November.  We have a couple spots left if you would like to sign up or if you want more information, just email me.  The deposit to hold your spot is $50.00.  It looks like it will be a great time.

  15. Hello....I love your Eagle Nest Rug....beautiful. Will keep my eyes out for more posts from you. Did you design your pattern? Linda

  16. Well go figure. I wrote down your blog address, even commented on a past post. "Thought" I added you to my side bar. Even remember doing it, but I guess I didn't hit save lol. Not good with computers. Did it again and made sure to hit save.
    Great wools! I'd say you have a "little" lol. WOW, I feel good. I thought I had a lot. All of a sudden I don't feel so overwhelmed :). Your little studio looks wonderful. Love how it's all displayed. And I think I saw your beagles little back legs in one of the shots!
    Hope your class gets filled!

  17. What yummy wool and a log home, that just sounds perfect and I love the wide cut for rug hooking. So great to meet another kindred spirit.

  18. Now that is one awesome room of wool! Beautiful colors and I'm sure you will have some really nice rugs made from them.

  19. Hi and Welcome to Blogland!
    Your room with all that wool is to dye for ... Yes, there was a pun intended ... LoL
    I only have one question ... How did you manage to HOOK yourself a rug hooker for a hubby??? You lucky, lucky girl!
    Hope you have lots of fun with your blog.

  20. Beautiful pictures of furniture, wool and puppy-dog legs. Also love your hooked piece that is used for the top of your blog. Now I need to figure out how to include a picture of something on my blog.

  21. Hello: I love your studio and all that wool...I'm new to rug hooking and love your work. Looking forward to meeting you and taking a look around your blog.
    Stop by sometime!
