Portabella ~



I'm not talking mushrooms.  I'm talking wool.  This wool is much more luscious in person.  It is from Rebecca Erb's July 2014 mailer.  It hooks like butter.  Just a great piece to get a very primitive background from only one wool.  It is a green, not something I'd normally use, but very muted and drab.  This may become one of my new favorites if it is still available. 


I'm using it for the background of the mat that I can't show you, but I'm sure many of you can figure out the pattern I'm hooking.  My goal is to have it hooked and bound this weekend because hopefully it will be going to its new home at Thanksgiving.


TGIF.  It's been a very long week.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Very nice shades for a background and like the idea of using one wool and getting so much variation.
