Great new dye gloves!!!

Check these out!!! While shopping at Hobby Lobby I spotted these!!! How fun are these for dyeing wool? Also I got the matching scrub brush in the event I would actually have to wash dishes. (You would have to cook in order to have dishes to wash!)
I spent the Whole day yesterday cutting up sweaters I have felted. I really didn't realize I had collected so many sweaters. I stop by the thrift store, find a couple, wash them and then I put them in old suitcases in the basement. By the washer and dryer. I remembered them yesterday and thought I ought to make a couple of bags and see if I can sell them! Here are the ones I got cut up. I still have one more suitcase full!

Looks like I better get the sewing machine warmed up.

Here's the little bag I made for myself quite some time ago.

As you can see, it holds all of my hooking supplies with ease. I think I could easily make two bags from one sweater. I'll show you what I come up with.

Tonight's hooking night so I'm off to see the girls. I missed last time so I have some catching up to do. I'll take some pics and share with you tomorrow.

Hi Sherri

It is truly amazing how small the world is getting. I found your blog spot while watching Deanne Fitzpatrick's video and saw your comments and blog address.

I am a new rug hooker and I live in the eastern most province of Canada-Newfoundland. I found your site interesting and have included you on my site.
