Creating my new rug"On the Edge of a Dream"

In between and all along the edges of my busy days I am drawing out my new rug pattern and overdying some wool with a "new " formula I came across on one of my all time favorite blogs called

Our entire family had a great week in Maine this summer and the Fourth of July fireworks were enjoyed just off the cliff in the front of our home. I wanted to capture just the essence of that night with my nine grandchildren in a rug~

I have plenty of blue wool but a lot of it needs to be toned down and Rebecca showed me exactly how to do that......I had some really bright blues and when they dry completely I will show you just how this formula transformed them~ Now they are PERFECT for my Atlantic ocean~

First the sketch....

Then the transfer onto monks cloth with a sharpie and some pastel chalks~
