Blogging Inspiration

I had a real treat today, when Barb G.  from Minnesota came down to do some wool shopping.  We had a great time selecting some colors for her upcoming projects and then........she gave me some valuable ideas about blogging.  Since I am new to the blogging scene, it was really helpful to hear what blogs she follows and what she likes from her blogging friends.  Thanks Barb.  You were an inspiration.  Pic above shows Barb and me, standing in front of some lovely bright colored wool.

It seems only fair to give wool equal time on this blog, so pictured below are 2 yard pieces of wool, for you to see.  The one on top is Winter Night.  It is a lovely combination of purples, blues and turquoises.  It is a favorite here at the store and gets used for backgrounds, night sky and water.

It's friend below is Robin's Egg Blue.  This makes a wonderful background, sky or water, as well.  It is a lovely combination of greys, teals and turquoises.  It is also a great color for birds and can be used in a primitive motif for flowers and whimsical animals.

Hand-dyed whole yards are $40.  I will divide into 1/2 yards for you,  1/2 yards are $20.  As always, there are fat quarters of every color in the store, for $10 each.  Although, with some of these beautiful yard pieces, it seems almost a shame to divide them up.

Reminder, special Saturday hooking is this Saturday, July 13th.  We will hook from 10-5, Carl will be making lunch for us.  Join us!

Talk soon,
