That storm isn't weather related but rather happens to be within my house. May 15th I'll be attending rug camp with the wonderful Barb Carroll at her lovely home in Ligonier, PA. Here is a picture of me and my gal pal Deb back in 2010 at the Guest House.
Although that is still two weeks away I hate waiting until the last minute to pull wool for my rugs. Have made that mistake before and the mess remains in my wool room even after I've left for camp. At least this way hopefully the mess can be organized before I really pull out of the driveway. So now the chaos begins.
Karen Kahle's "Simple Gifts". It is a Magdalena style design so will love playing with it and am sure Barb will too.
Trying to figure out a good way to carry wool for camp isn't always easy. The 'under the bed' containers are nice to carry pieces of yardage in of colors you know you'll use. But that can be bulky to maneuver in a classroom.
So I've found that putting sections of wool as large as 1/4 yard pinned to a ring is a great way to present the wool. I'll have a ring with background color ideas, another ring for border ideas and various smaller strips in those colors I'd like for my smaller motifs. However, I still carry that plastic container with the larger pieces in case they are needed. They may stay in the car and can be retrieved easily if more yardage is required.
Hey guys and gals, this chaos isn't over yet. The storm is just coming into the area.
Have a great evening.
