A few days ago I mentioned needing a better way to transport my wool to rug camps as the under the bed tote seemed awkward to manipulate. Was thinking about purchasing another sewing machine carrier on wheels until remembering what my daughter in law gave me as one of the gifts last Christmas.
Next step was to find containers which would fit inside and could be removed. None I had seemed to work so went to Walmart and found these small flexible containers. They came in a set of two so purchased 2 sets and plans are to layer these two on top of the others.
Here is the start of choosing my wool; not sure if I want a sky colored background or neutral so taking both.
The tote has handles which will be convenient and it is light weight to carry. Having two layers of small containers will allow me to color plan certain sections or motifs in one container. Those colors can be removed and put back in the tote with ease without disrupting all the other wool.
My teacher is Kris Miller and this is the rug pattern I'm taking, a design by Lori Brechlin named, as you see it....Oh Glorious Day. This first photo was lifted from Kris' site.
My friend and roomie Deb has hooked the same rug and this is her version. Appears Deb used that extra margin outside the design to make a border. Great idea.
I've started my new project and will show you eventually when more is hooked. Happy Saturday, and either today or tomorrow I MUST cut my grass 😒.
