We have snow today (only about 4 inches, which is not much compared to some who have more than 2 feet). So I'm spending some of my day inside organizing what I call my "wall of wool". Since I've started rug hooking, I've become obsessed with purchasing wool, whether it is on eBay or at thrift stores. I have no idea why I've purchased so much, but I have. I've slacked off some in the buying lately because I have so much of it. I use it for my rug hooking, pillows and ornaments that I make out of wool and wool felt. I sell the pillows at local craft shows.
At any rate, I have the wool organized by color on stackable racks. So I've spent part of the day organizing the wool and putting back the wool that I've pulled out recently to make pillows for the craft shows that I participated in before the holidays.
I'm working on several rugs now, one of which is a white pumpkin with a pumpkin-colored background. I haven't hooked in 4 months or so because I was working on the pillows and ornaments for the craft shows and then the holidays came and things just seem to have been busy lately. And I really like working with the wool felt and making pillows and ornaments. But I'm President of my local rug hooking guild so I need to be hooking.
On another note, I want to get my blog to where I have more followers. So maybe I need to have a giveaway. I'm going to ponder the idea and maybe come up with something handmade to give away. I'm still having trouble getting my blog to look like some of the other blogs that I follow. Maybe I can find a little help to fix it up.
I sent the items to my Valentine swap person from the Irish Rose Creations Valentine swap, but haven't received mine. Hopefully, the person who had my name will remember to send my items. We'll see.
