Something blue from something old!
Something old~ can become something blue?
I had a few 5" x 5" pieces of navy blue wool suit coat.
I put them in a stockpot to boil & felt for rug hooking.
The secondary dye that bled off made all of these blues!
There was a lot of blue dye remaining. I put a piece of black & white
houndstooth type plaid in the stock pot to pick it up~
It hooks into such a beautiful texture!
The palette of wool that I came up with last week~
I wanted to come up with some muted plum tones for my
'I Love You to the Moon and Back' design.
I t would be fun to bring all of my punch needle patterns to
wool hooked rugs~
I cut some of my pattern colors in advance~
I like to have projects bagged and ready to go for when I have
a little bit of time to relax.
When I have a good amount of plaid, pattern etc. I like to
add them to my swatch chart. It helps me when planning a rug.
I like to add texture without having to change colors.
Hope you're having a great day, Friends~
Thank you for stopping by!
