A day of creativity!

I took Suzi Blu's video to heart yesterday and got creative and started making on wool that is!
Sheri from Shabby Sheep came by and we got in the dye pans and came up with some lovely colors!

They are sooooo lovely that I can't help but share them with you!
This batch will be for sale for my blog readers so if you see something you just gotta have drop me a line by clicking on the post office box picture and let me know what you just have to have!
I take checks and paypal.
If you'd like to see larger pictures of the wools please visit my Flickr page
These are all one-of-a-kind wools with the exception of Indian Paintbrush which is a recipe from Woolly Mammoth Woolens.
This is a wool that I call EASTER. Easter is 1/2 yard
This was fun to dye....we did it in an open pan and floated the wool on top of some water and then drizzled various Easter colors on top of it. It was an experimental process and I think it turned out lovely and watercolor-y!
$18 + $1 shipping
Here is a close up of EASTER
This is 1 yard of Fantasy wool called AWAKENING.
It goes from a dark night to a sunny day.
The great thing about Fantasy wools is that you can get a different effect in your hooking depending on which direction you strip the wool.
$36 + $2 shipping.

I had a ball, and we did come up with some great colors!! I just finished cutting some "seaweed" for my grass. Can't wait to hook it up. You're da wo-man.

  7. The dyed wools are absolutely incredible. It would have been heaven to "dye" with you two. Do you ever dye cottons? Would love some for quiltmaking if you ever do!!!! I want first dibs....haha Take care and xoxoxo to you from Tennessee! Josh

  8. Vicki,
    You are always welcome to come up and dye with me!!! Anytime!!!
    Joshua...dyeing cottons...well, I supposed it couldn't be that much different from dyeing wool...could it?
    I'll keep that in mind.
