yep..... I'm on time his month with my TUSAL posting. Here is my little ort jar..... not much to see, but I have been busy.
So what you ask have I been doing? I am wanting to start another rug hooking but need to add to my stash of woolly 'worms', so I have been dyeing some plaid wool fabric I bought on ebay.
First I had to find a pot suitable for dyeing and not to be used for food ever. I was lucky I found a bargain at Wilko's ... just £7.50 for this stock pot, with lid, brand new. I had been looking for a second hand one but with no luck, appears they are now shabby chic and cost a bomb!
Here is the result ......
on the left of the photo is the fabric before, and on the right the colour after dyeing.
and here are a few woolly 'worms' I have already cut
I've also been trying to finish off some projects I have had on the go for a while....... first my small pillow with patchwork basket blocks.
Also found some blocks I started last century..lol... yes that old.... 1996 I think. Certainly time to get that quilt finished. May need to redo a few blocks... I have certainly got more accurate with my piecing!
Well a bit of an overload on photos this post.
