Dyeing today

I recently acquired a ball of wool fabric that had been cut and prepared for rug braiding.

Since I don't braid I decided to use it in one of my hooked rugs, but the color was such a bright blue that I decided it need a little help. I dashed off a quick email to Gene Shepherd asking his advice on what to do with it and he kindly offered some suggestions. I followed his instructions this morning and ended up with wool that is much more interesting.

I don't know WHAT exactly I'll end up using it for, but I sure like it a lot better now! Thanks for your help Gene! One of my favorite things about the blogging world is that it makes "Rich and Famous" people accessible to everyday folks like me.

All pressed and pretty......

Isn't it great how you can take a not-so-pretty piece of wool and turn it into something wonderful. I really like how it all turned out!

Happy Thanksgiving Gayle!

It looks beautiful! Dyeing wool is so much fun - I think I enjoy it as much (if not more) than the hooking....
