IT'S A COLORFUL LIFE ~ ~ ~

Yes, it is!!  I've been in the dye pots this week ~ these colors are sooo beautiful to me!  I hope they will be to the rug hookers of the world, as well!  This Saturday is the Gathered Treasures show here in Mansfield ~ I'm going to have these new colors and putting them together in a little different way so that you can have one of each wool in a color in one packet!


This is kind of a melon color ~ beautifully vibrant and yet some of the remnant pieces are darker. I've just been experimenting this week and so far it's been a great success!!

I'm starting to pack up my wool tonite ~ also have new as-is wools to tear into half-yard pieces.  Heidi and I are taking a little field trip tomorrow ~ my timing is impeccable ~ as usual!!  So back to work for me ~ hope to see as many of you as can make it on Saturday!!  Sonny and I will be waiting ~ make sure you stop by and say hi!!

Alice, I'm loving that orange. You're inspiring me to pull out my dye pots now.

I am playing catch up on everyone's blogs - including my own. Your colours ARE beautiful - I feel inspired to get at it too, once everything else is caught up.

Sounds like the show was a great time as well. A few things on the calendar here will mean I get to see everyone again too - such fun!
