Woolie Wednesday~ Mug Mats

Today, I have a couple of things to share with you....the first one being todays wool project. This is as easy as a stitch to whip up, with just a few pieces of different colored wool felt you can have some nice little mug mats (or coasters) for your beverages to rest on.

I used 4", 3", and 2" circles and here you go:

I am working on two different sets....thought I would show you what they both looked like.

Now, onto my lovely little "wool" trip with those two crazy girls....Teresa and Patti. We went to this cute little wool shop last Thursday that carries wool pieces, patterns for rug hooking and punch needle, supplies for rug hooking, and frames for rug hooking. It is an absolute rug hookers dream! They have the friendliest people that come out to hang out and hook every Thursday. You get to see all these wonderful pieces that are in progress, plus some beautiful finished creations hanging on the wall. I was just so in awe and so inspired, that now I really need to get on to a large rug hooking!!! I have done a couple very small pieces, but now I feel the need to get a large one going! :0)
And the assortment of wool is just great! I just loved looking at it all, feeling it, and I just had a good ole' time in at Wool Works!

Awesome hooked rugs and braided rugs (yet another passion of mine!) :)

Check out this beautiful wool!

These are the wool pieces I brought home with me for some of my upcoming wool projects!

Ok, well I hope you all enjoyed todays wool post! Hope you are having a great week! It has been absolutely beautiful here in Central Pa for the last few days and I am just loving it! Tarrah
