I wanted to make a couple little prim shelf pillows with wildflower designs. In our vacation travels, I saw a nice old pillow with this Queen Anne's lace flower design on it. I want to do a goldenrod to go along with it. Lots of little french knots there! I need to fix up the goldenrod french knots a bit more and then I'll attach it to this plaid background wool.
That background wool fabric is what I purchased last week for $1 at a thrift store. So I lightly overdyed a small piece of it in some brown wool dye to bring down the tones. The wool has some pink in it so the brown overdye knocked that pink color right out. I think I'll try overdyeing it with some pumpkin orange wool dye just for the heck of it. I like experimenting like that ... sometimes it gives me nice surprises.
My list of things to do today include cutting the grass ... 3 hours worth of time and cleaning up in my wool/sewing room. I need to sort and organize the accumulated scraps that are laying about everywhere. It's getting to be a disorganized mess in there.
Happy day everyone!
