Hand Dyed Wool Embroidery Floss and Dyed Felt
I've been working on getting all my embroidery supplies ready for my Level 1 Hand Embroidery class in February. This is lace weight wool that I made into skeins and dyed.

I have also ordered some supplies that I will show you after they arrive.

I'm going to work this week on the mechanics of how I'm putting the book together. So more on that later in the week. I have finished my last page to be sent off to Gayle. I'll show you that as soon as she receives it.
Thanks for all your comments on the sander tutorial. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
