Good Saturday morning everyone!! Sarah and I went shopping again yesterday and this time we stopped by the goodwill store..I found more wool sweaters to shrink up for my penny rug making..I love this orange one..
The one on the left is a olive color and the red one is big..so I got lots of wool to work with..my question to any one out there is how do I make the fibers more close together without totally shrinking them..I don't want them to fray but the fabric seems so thick once I shrink them up..any suggestions..I love the wool I have been getting and cause its still kind of think and smooth etc..is this because it hasn't been felted yet? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.:)
I also picked up these stampin up stamps..the top one is used but the 2 smaller ones are retired sets and brand new..they are on ebay as we speak..so if you want these please stop by my ebay site
I also won this on Ebay..I can't wait to use these the lettering in making vinyl wall cut outs and for penny rugs etc..I also won another one that is all mixed up (thats what it is called) its got some fun lettering..again can't wait to use it for penny rugs, pillows etc..
I picked up this chip board yesterday at Michaels..i was able to use my 40% off coupons and she let me use them both..I will use these as templates for penny rugs etc..can't wait..the top one is the alphabet and the lower one is shapes..see below photo for the designs..
and I picked up another one of these to use in my penny rugs..I was trying to get the oblong one and within 2 days they were sold out..so will try again on pay day for that one..I had my friend Sarah purchase this one for me using another 40% coupon..you gotta love coupons.;)I saved $13.50 at Michaels by using my coupons...:)
and last but not least..I got my new spring Primitive place magazine on Thursday..I can't wait to sit and read it..I love this one and Mercantile Gatherings..they are my favs..well I have my grocery shopping done and ready for Super bowl tomorrow over at Sarahs..we have a huge spread we are doing..will share that tomorrow morning and I am hoping to get my hair cut today..it is driving me bonkers..ready to take the clippers to it..and I am hitting the hardware store for metal dust pans so I can finish my dust pan cover to share..hopefully tomorrow..have a wonderful weekend everyone.. (oh and the item below is going to be a Wooly sheep) still have to paint and then needle felt the wool on and make a penny rug blanket for it.;)
Here are your 2 bingo words for today..:)
