Preparing for Rug Camp

This morning after breakfast decided to start pulling wool for my next camp project, Which is Out in the Garden, a design by Maggie Bonanomi and offered by Blackberry Primitives.  I didn't see a picture of the pattern on the web site so maybe you need to contact her for a restock.
This is the wool I'm taking as options for some of the motifs in the pattern.  NOTE: the wool colors you see on the screen are not at all what it looks like in person.  Those lemon yellow pieces are not yellow. Crazy what a flash does to wool.

Lynne, hope you will drop by my table to look at this wool and notice the difference in color between this picture and the eye.  
So, when I was trying to put back the wool from September's class and pull wool wanted for this class it required that I re-stack the wool. OMG, If I ever buy another piece of wool I hope someone shoots me.  Hmm, well  not really shoot me but slap me up beside the head for sure.
As you can see there is a lot more work needed to get the wool room orderly.  I've certainly started a mell of a hess in that room for sure. And now with only 6 days and a wake-up to go before camp.

Am totally looking forward to the last of my camps for the year.  I only attend 3 camps per year and enjoy each one.  

Good Sunday and good evening to all.



  1. Hi Saundra,
    Oh, hooray!! I have that pattern and will be excited to see how you hook it!! Still have not gotten out my frame yet, but I am getting closer! The weather here took a turn for one last heat up and is now supposed to cool down......finally!!! Hope you have a wonderful time at your camp! Your wool is lovely and you can NEVER have too much!!!
    Heart Hugs~

  2. Only 3 camps??? Lucky girl you are.
    Hey, I hooked that rug, too. I'm sure you will put me to shame.
    Happy Halloween :)

  3. looks like a fun rug for camp...your wool is heavenly...always have wool envy with anyone else's stash...

  5. I was thinking the same thing I did that pattern and I am sure you will put me to shame.
    My wool room gets all organized and lovely until I need to get some wool for a project.
    When I ever retire I hope to go to a couple more rug camps.
    I am up to two. with a couple of hook ins thrown in.


  6. Love that pattern, saundra!! What fun and lots of wool,,, my wool room is sort of tidy at the moment,, as least to me,,,,!! Its fun planning a mat though,,,my favorite part besides the hooking!! Take care,,,,,

  7. Lucky you!! Three camps. I only manage one. We are so far away from any. My closest is a 6 hour drive. Love your pattern. Quite different from what you've been hooking lately. Can't wait to see it in the works!

  8. Looks like another fun pattern to hook! I will be excited to see what you do with that one! It is so hard to get a true color or wool!! Have fun at camp, will look forward to seeing pictures!!

  9. Guess what, I hooked that rug too! "Out in the Garden". I'll have to find my picture, I gave it to my daughter-in-law a few years ago for her Christmas present. Where's this camp at & who is your teacher? (Maybe I missed your post on that or I've forgotten!) it's amazing how are wool rooms become a total mess when we start a new project! Enjoy, can't wait to see your rug in progress! And Happy Halloween!

  10. I love this pattern. Have it too, but haven't gotten to it yet. Have fun at camp!
