A Little Work and a Little Play

I've been spending some time this week in my wool room drawing patterns for someone ~ there's a dozen sitting on top of my ice cream parlor table and there is a Domestic Zoo pattern sitting on the chair to the right which is ready to go when I get another order.  

I always like to have a Domestic Zoo drawn ahead of time because it is a bear to draw and when a hooker wants a pattern she(or he) wants it NOW!  Hey, I'm only saying what I'm like..... when I get hot for a pattern I cannot wait to get it.  Well I have waited but you know what I mean.

And, thanks to Lauren of Rugs and Pugs I received an order for an Auntie Peanut pattern, you can see it all drawn up on my drawing table.  Thanks for the plug Lauren.

Now to the 'play' part......  If you scroll back to the top picture you can see some wool hanging over the back of the parlor chair and the corner of a picture in a page protector.  That is a picture of an antique rug which will be my project when I go to Woolley Fox in May.  Yeah, I know it is over a month away but hey, like I indicated before.... when we hookers get excited about an event or a new pattern we just have to play with it.

And I'm truly surprised that my wool room has continued to be rather organized.  However, it will not be that way when I return home from Barb's I'm sure.  It will go downhill from there because I tend to be negligent in returning my unused wool, have wool out that I'm cutting for the project and so it goes on and on until the room is in such disarray I've no choice but to knuckle down and clean.  If I were smart, which obviously I'm not, I would keep it tidy and put things back where they belong right away.  But will try and do better.


  1. I don't think wool rooms were meant to stay neat and organized! Mine is a mess again! Wool needs to be sorted and wool dust needs to be gotten rid of. It's a real battle for me.
    I know it cuts in play time, but I'm glad you've had some pattern orders. I'm sure it helps to support your habit.
    Hugs :)

  3. Saundra,
    What gorgeous wools I see in your workroom...I want them all!!!!

  4. Ah honey! To get to go to a camp at Barb's???? What a dream! I would have to hit a lottery. Barb and Bobbie were the first hookers I ever met at a rug camp. It was "Show Me" in Excelsior Springs. So remote........I was wishing I had taken a pistol with me. LOL!!!!!! Barb is da bomb!!!!
    Can't wait to hear all about it. Hug her for me.


  5. Your wool room is causing drool on my keyboard.
