Oh my, never in my wildest dreams did I think there would be this explosion of wool strips in my home. As you all know, when we first start out we don't have many colors and to be thrifty we go to the 'thrifty' shop to buy wool clothing, wash and cut. Being new to hooking I was starving for wool. Not any more, they are multiplying like bunnies. You will gasp when you see these photos.
Okay, when at rug camps I usually have a basket to put small pieces of wool in, carry to sleeping room to cut or use if I need any wool in the evening, so the basket is small and easy to carry. And then upon getting home from camp it is handy to have beside me when finishing the rug. Sounds great, right? And it is.... except that immediately upon finishing that rug want to start another so I'm too lazy to remove the wool from the basket. Instead, I put that basket aside and grab an empty basket and start the process all over again. Except now I had 3 baskets with wormies in them so what did I do you ask? Heck, ordered more baskets!
Here is a group of baskets which have woolie worms in them. Actually there are 8 baskets but some are piled on top of another and one is hidden to the far back right.
Thanks for dropping by and watching Big Dog develop.
