Paint it yourself

Kim came over to visit and pick out the colors for the OutHouse Pattern's night sky that she is hooking away on, we looked through the color books and choice 2 blues and a light lavender tone.

I handed her the paint brush and said "here paint it yourself" she looked at me a little funny and said ahh OK? well I created a monster I think the paint was flying quickly up and down the wool LOL I quite enjoyed watching her with that little smile swinging the brush high and low. We salted it , rolled it up and off to the oven.

I dyed the lavendar color and let her back at the wool again... The smile was getting larger as she went!!

Out of the oven with steam still coming off the tin foil, it's ready for the clothesline.

Take 2, this is the second wool piece that I painted. Added a bunch of colors little yellow, blue, green and voilet I had in the house.

Where has the month gone?

I have been trying and trying to get my head back into rug hooking and dying but it seems that I have too many 'energy vampires' biting at my neck. In life you have to been careful of these creatures as people will keep asking for more and more of your time and skills. So back off Vampires and get your own life!!!
Because I have been so tarty I should have a wool giveaway!! ummm, tonight after I spend the evening doing Interviews for my volunteer group, I'll pick out some wool and post the details tomorrow. Second surprise will be a small burlap Santa pattern.
