WOOL PROJECTS UPDATE

Two wool projects finished. I am not totally happy with this table mat. I think the background wool stretched some as it is not laying as flat as it should. I do like the design, though. The pineapple is a sign of welcome and I like designs that include one.
The little candle mat was a free pattern called "Autumn Picnic Candle Mat" by Bird Brain Designs. You can find it here. It makes up quickly. This one is for a gift. I will be making a second one for myself.
Tomorrow is "Sew 'n Sews" day. We will be meeting at Rosy's home. She lives about two hours' drive away from me. It should be a fun time and worth the drive. I am going to try to remember to take my camera so that I can take pictures and share with you.

Enjoy your day and come back for another visit when you have time.

  4. I love your wool creations, Karen.

    I have a small, small collection that I've started of wool and felted wools to hopefully try my hand at things as cute as these.

  5. I always like a quilt or project that has pineapples, because of their meaning. You did a beautiful job, I hope you figure out how to smooth it out. I am never good at that sort of thing!

  8. I love your wool projects! I really need to find a kit or something, so I can try one of those out! I have been wanting to for quite awhile -- any good links for reasonable-priced kits? :o)

  10. oh both little projects are looking so cute. Everytime I click on your blog to read a post I gasp at that header quilt--just so scrumptious (I know I told you that already...but it still happens)

  11. Hi Karen!

    Love your little wool projects!!! One of the Q-shops I was in in Vegas had quite a few wool projects. There was one I really liked, but they did not have a kit for me... I am a wool virgin, mainly because I am allergic to wool, but a few of my friends have encouraged me to try a small kit... one day I will find a little one I like and give it a try! 8-)

    Your Baskets of Life is wonderful! Love your fabric/color choices!

    You found a good deal there with your vintage sewing machine!

    Hope you are feeling better!
