This past October, while at the Creative Festival in Toronto, I picked up a little penny rug kit. I have wanted to try working with wool for a while but just had not gotten around to gathering the supplies. The kit contained everything I needed to get me going and I absolutely loved making this little piece. (it is about 11" across)
This, of course, has me now wanting to do something more substantial with wool, an idea has begun knocking about in my head so I am now collecting interesting threads, pearl cottons, silks and recently, at a thrift shop, I came across this full length (and at one time, very expensive) wool coat. It really had kind of outlived it's usefulness, as it did have a few holes and stains.....but it will be reborn.After a HOT bath, a ride in the dryer and lots of "un-sewing" here it is, now a pile of wool pieces, waiting for me to get started.
