Boy was I surprised when picking up mail yesterday afternoon. There was a large brown package in the box and I hadn't ordered anything. When pulling out this pillowy soft package it sure felt like wool ~ but again hadn't placed an order.
Once pulled out could see the return address of my constant roomie and friend Deb. Just couldn't wait to get back home to open it ~ was like Christmas in May.
There was a sweet message saying the gals thought of me daily so everyone decided to send me a piece of their wool. Goodness, my pals were very nice to share their wool with me and Barb was very generous, but that IS Barb.
When the package arrived I'd already completely hooked the top 4 birds and the 5th was in the works. Had to finish that bird first so today I started the 6th using some of the gals' wool. That would be the purple bird using mostly Deb's wool because there just MUST be a purple bird, right Barb?
I think the beak and legs of the bird need to be changed since it is so close in value as the background (not part of the gal's wool). I pulled that out of my grey bag of worms but maybe they need to be black.
Am planning to use the other gals' wool in the rug as well and not sure where just yet.
WOW, I'm so blessed to have such good friends who kept me close during a rug camp we've come to consider a part of our life and I couldn't enjoy this year.
Thank you dear friends for thinking of me. And now the fun still continues here at home and in my heart even after that camp.
