Wool Dying Day

Also spent the day dying wool....pictures tomorrow.  Right now the wool is drying all over my kitchen!!

Just Finished This Pillow

I just finished this pillow...I used wool that I hand- dyed and I love how the "spotty red color turned out.   I used the same wool on the front and back...   The "Liberty" and the star is a creamy off-white that  doesn't show up as pretty as it is in person.  The circle is a very deep blue.   Mostly rag-stuffed to feel heavy.  I have this for sale for $28.00 with free shipping on my website or  Just e-mail me if you are interested....

Feeling Happy and Blessed

I always feel or try to feel that every day is a good day, but some days I feel especially happy and very blessed.  Today is one of those days.  I am thankful for my husband and wonderful family.  My oldest grandson is now in basic training at Ft. Benning, Ga and I am so proud and thankful for him.  My husband is retired Army and my son-in-law was also in the Army.  We owe all our service men and women past and present such a debt of gratitude.....
We all have much to be thankful for..

I also have a fellow crafter here in Virginia that I am thankful for. 
Mandy from Bitttersweet folkart - http://bittersweetfolkartprimitives.blogspot.com/  has been so generous to me in many ways.  She is a talented artist and and just the sweetest person ever.... if  you have not seen her beautiful, primitive dolls, please take a look..

Many smiles and hugs to all,
