Middle of February, is the coldest time of the year for us Nova Scotian's. I was visiting my daughter and her family the past two days in Halifax and she lives on the 17th floor and you could hear windows cracking it was that cold!
Last week I did a little 'live' video demonstrating dyeing a skein of yarn on facebook. I think everyone who watched it enjoyed it! I'll try to do more, perhaps a regular segment 'dyeing with Della'? We will see. The feature picture above is of my color I call 'Noel'. This is what I had dyed for the video.
The Rug Hooking Guild of Nova Scotia is compiling a list of Rug Hooking Supply stores throughout the maritime provinces (NB, PEI, NS, NL) and Dawny Negus Jr has begun work such a map. You can access this map from the URL linked below. Thanks so much Dawny, this is awesome!
I dyed up this skein of yarn to duplicate wool fabric I dye called Falling. I think it is so very pretty.
I will be vending Tuesday, Feb. 18th at the Villa Madonna in Rothesay, NB. If you are in the area and would like to drop in, you are welcome to at 115 Villa Madonna Road, Rothesay, NB. I would love to see you!
This week in the mail, several rugs completed and I was able to snag some pictures. This is a lovely Christmas tree hooked by Kim Mackenzie. The background is my dyed 'noel' sparkle wool.
Another completed rug by Kim Mackenzie, pattern by River House Studio's, On Holiday, sold by Della's Rug Hooking Studio. It is so pretty.
Lynne Lines finished her pumpkin rug. She has the whipping left to do. Some of the wool was provided by Della's Rug Hooking Studio.
Barb Black is almost done this lovely rug. The mustard background is my hand dyed wool called G-3.
Sherry Mailman-Veinotte finished up her lovely Gus rug of her cat. Some of the background green was hand dyed by Della's Rug Hooking studio.
Winter will be over before we know it, hang in there folks. This is the time of year for annual hook-ins, something to look forward to.
Have an awesome week everyone!
