Humming Birdie by Woolin Rouge

Wow! I can't believe how long it's been since I last blogged. So much has happened. My husband was diagnosed with Cancer, had surgery to get that horrible disease out, and has since had some strokes. All seems to be good now and Chemo will start in two weeks. All the prayers from people all over the country have done so much good!

Meanwhile, I have been busy sewing. One project that is finally finished is Humming Birdie, the last design in the Birdie Table Runner Series.  It will be shown at Market in Kansas City this month.

My borders didn't look that bad in real life but they are sure bumpy here!
I had so much fun making this one. Oh wait, I have fun making all the designs! It's the wool. I love working with wool!

I have started dyeing wool and will soon be dyeing all the wool used in Woolin Rouge designs. Once I can stay out of hospitals with my husband and things settle back down I will be on a dyeing frenzy. The wool has been purchased, the dyeing studio is set up, and all I need is a little bit of time.

Hi Sylvia - Glad to hear things are going well with your hubby. Your humming birdie table runner is adorable - wool makes everything SO much better, huh?

I'm so sorry to hear about your husband, that must have been a very worrying time for you both. But, I'm glad he's on the mend. I love your woollen table runner.
It's gorgeous!!

Joan, I have been working on a Woolin Rouge design that is taking a while to create. Once it is finished I intend to start the Big Dog rug!

I think about it a lot. I haven't hooked anything in so long. It shouldn't be too much longer!
