Yesterday I dyed up some of that beautiful blue that I used in the sky of my Red Bird adaptation. Here is the formula:

8/16 of Cushings Turquoise Blue

1/16 of Cushings Silver Grey

1/16 of Magic Carpet Blue

I did this formula over 11 eighths of wool – natural, oatmeal and textures…

  5. Hi Loretta: Beautiful rugs, wish I had been able to go to the annual. Love the rug of the cat curled up in the middle with mice running around it. Is this a combination of braded and hooked? It looks so interesting. Do you know who the artist was? It must have been fun to make. Have you done one? I continue to look for and enjoy your blogging.

    Thanks for including my rug, “Working on the Railroad” and thanks for all the kind comments. It is adapted from a photo my father took about 1938, when he worked his first summer job for Canadian National Raiways He would have been 18. The map shows the rough location of the photo, near Bowland’s Bay on Lake Wahnapitae, Ontario.
