We've had some gloomy, cool weather lately. Perfect weather to plop in front of the TV and indulge myself with my new wool obsession. I can stitch all day and night and never get tired of it, but this is a nice change of pace. I tried something new and tea dyed the cream colored mat part. It was just too bright. I even dunked the pennies in for a bit. I love the result. I wasn't sure if the wool would take a tea bath well, but I read that all natural fibers will. I have an idea to try next that will combine both penny mats and my love of samplers.
Here's the resting spot for it.
Like I said in my post title, I wish I could order up a few more hours in the day. I never seem to have enough time to get to all the crafty goodness that I want to. I miss making collage art and cards, and I really need to make more effort to do that again. I've just finished my first cross stitch design. The model will soon be stitched, and I'll share that when I can. Then there's the myriad of samplers waiting in the wings, not to mention a couple more must do's from market.
Something needs to give. I know... I'll give up exercising, laundry, and housework.
Have a wonderful week.
