Circles and More Circles

Remember the basket of scrap wool in the previous post? Well, I've pulled some pieces out and cut some into strips for rug hooking and others in circles. Yes, circles of wool for a penny rug. Here are some to start out with.

After a bit, I just had to play with them to see how they would look. I'll do something like this layout, only larger, and stitch them down on a light colored piece of wool. I'm thinking of using Walnut Crystals to dye the cream colored wool that I have for the background. I'm planning a scrappy penny rug/runner for my buffet cabinet.

Now I have to take a break from the wool stash. My nose has been itching and I have been sneezing with all of the wool dust from cutting.

What do I work on next?
