Wool Yarn and A Lil' of This and That!
Hand dyed wool yarn works so nice when it comes to needle punch!
It runs smoothly through my punch needle and I just love how it looks. Looks like the tinest hooking but it is punched!
Isn't Miss Eva Mae growing! She is an absolute doll and is full of smiles. I kept her this afternoon while her momma worked. We spent the afternoon walking around the house and talking of going to the zoo one day. It was just me and her this afternoon as Sloan is with his Mom this week. (Missing my lil' grandboy already) She took a week of vacation days and is spending the whole week with him...bet his Dad wishes he was off work, too!
Slowly loops are being pulled on the Bittersweet. Enjoying every minute of the progress. Do you see my "wool tree" in the background?
Isn't it a handy wool holder? I was talking to a lady at rug camp last month and she said she had one stored away and would like to sell it. Didn't take me long to say that I would like to have one.
It looks very simple to make.
Well I do believe I have a little bit of ADD going on in my life. I just can't seem to concentrate on one thing. I pull loops and punch...then can't wait to paint on something....wish I could channel it all into downsizing my stash of crafty stuff but then again I might NEED it!
More needle punches just about done :)
And then.....I started some more! Next on the list is learning how to dye yarn! Any suggestions are gladly appreciated :)
