Remember the delicious wool felt I bought at Stony Brook? Well, I made these adorable mug rugs. See the tiny leaves, those were scraps that VGF Carol put in my Tabletop Thread Catcher during the PTQG meeting in early September. I just couldn't let them be thrown away. No, I had to return them to her. She now has two mug rugs for when we sew together.
I said my good-byes to Mom on Tuesday morning and headed north for a visit with my college roommate and her family. We've kept in touch for 30 years, but don't often see each other. So, this was a real treat.
One day to visit, and I was on the road again.
Tomorrow was a work day.
While I was away, they displayed it on a vintage wire hat stand next to the book.She hand dyes felted wool to get some totally awesome colors.
Just look at these! The first hat I made was a bright orange with brown. It was gorgeous. Unfortunately, it didn't fit my head. So, VGF Wes is now the proud owner of an orange wool hat. I did enlarge the pattern and made another one that fits. Next, a hat for Mom to match her jacket.
Til next time,
