A Woolie Week



Just wanted to first say my heart, thoughts, and prayers are with all those affected by Sandy.  Such a sad and hard thing to go through. 

I've been trying to stay off the computer and see what I can accomplish.  I made this goofy bunch of pumpkins some were Frank's patterns and a few I drew up.  They will be put back for next fall.  I can work on fall items all year long and never grow tired of them

 
Then I punched up some needle cases and lined them with wool and made wool pages.


Then some heart ones with wool pages, too and added some  wonderful ribbon I found at a scrapbook store for the ties.

 
Then the dye and the wool yarn was calling to me so.....
 
 

 
I dyed some and some more!

 
I haven't tried much dyeing in the past so a lot of experiments going on.


Couldn't wait to try a little of that freshly dyed yarn.....
 
Of course I spent some time with the grandkiddo's....Miss Eva Mae is setting up and chattering up a storm.  She is the sweetest little girl always smiling. 

 
Sloan comes over after school each day and waits on his Dad or Mom to pick him up.  They keep me hopping but I wouldn't trade it for anything. 
 
Hope you found some time this week to share some time with the ones you love! 
 
Happy Trails.......Ginger

Wow, you accomplished a month's (or for some of us several month's) worth of work there. Your JOL's are so sweet, but of course not quite as sweet as your little granddaughter! ~Roberta
