Jour de Joie
It means...Joyful Day! And why was it joyful? I spent the day with a friend who was just starting to get a taste for wool. I know, I know...it is kinda like being a drug pusher but instead I am a WOOL PUSHER, lol. I just so love wool because of its texture, forgiveness and my hands look at least 5 years younger than my face!
My friend had taken a wool class but wasn't quite satisfied with the results...and so, I showed her some tricks of the trade and brought her to the dark side...I mean, the wool side :) There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the "AH HA" moment when a student sees it...and she should know she taught Operating Room Classes for my former employer and I was one of her former students :). And so it was a Jour de Joie....Joyful Day!
I finished stitching my Buttermilk Basin winter mat which I am making into a pillow for my church pew. I really love how it turned out...and being the button freak I am I added a little star button on the scarf.
This mess was created to make this....
Can you guess what I am making???? I can't wait to hear what you think it will be, hehehe....
Have a great Wednesday...I am off to spend the afternoon with the Juniperberries and get some more stitching done!!!
