So I've been sorting, dyeing, and playing with wool in my studio. It's been interesting to see what I really have out there! I've saved so many wonderful textures and great weights of as found wools. Special pieces for that special rug someday. The above photo shows how I've organized some of them in quarter yard packages. Each package has four pieces that measure 6.5 by 17 inches. I've put at least one great texture (plaids, herringbones, etc) in the package and at least two or three pieces of solid and hand dyed. They are organized by colors that go beautifully together. They are so beautiful to look at! I just had to have a photo shoot with this big bowl of wool! Told you I can't stand still while waiting!
The countdown is seven days until my beginning rug hooking class is to begin (Feb 24th 6:00 P.M.). So far one student has signed up. The school has a policy requiring there be six students before the class can happen.
I'm pretty well organized with lots of great ideas and teaching aids I've come up with. Dave has so kindly built some beginner frames for me. Things are ready to go! This will be a fun class above all else and will be a great opportunity to meet others in the community who have a love for the art and craft of rug hooking!
If you live in my area and would like to take my class, here is the link to the WITC online catalog where you can get the information about the class. It's easy to register and you can also call 800-243-
