Hydrangeas in Wool

Here is a sneak peak of one of Woolin Rouge Designs newest creations. I have such a love of the Daiwabo Taupes that I just HAD to use them as a background for our new design. The design is pale but not quite as pale as it photographed. The hydrangea petals are dimensional. I hand dyed all the wool for this project so I can easily duplicate the wools for kits.

I must confess that I am a lot farther than this on the design than this but I don't want to show more until the big reveal.  Progress has been slower than normal for me lately because of my husbands needs due to the horrible disease cancer, but I'm hoping the worst is over and we are on our way back down the hill of horror.

Alan and I have had an amazing support group. Our children are beyond amazing and we have some of the most wonderful friends. We are truly blessed. I have been so thankful through all the Doctors visits, chemo sessions, hospital stays, etc., that I have had needlework to do to occupy my time and save my sanity. My days once a month sewing with my tiny sewing group would refresh my soul for the next round of medical sessions.  

Thank you all for your support and know that Alan is starting to mend and chemo is over. Our prayers are being answered.

Now let the creating begin!!
