Wool


My wonderful friend, Sheila, sent this wool rug to me last year. Her stitching is so gorgeous on it. No, it's not done by machine. She did it all by hand. Just gorgeous. She also sent a Christmas one that I'll share with you later.

This has me thinking about the wool bed rug I want to make. I've got the background wool, have been collecting small pieces of wool for almost two years now. I'm a little scared to start it because I'm not sure my blanket stitching will be as perfect as Sheila's. Guess the only way to find out is to just prep one and try it. I'm not building a piano.... I'm not building a piano....

Today I felt a tad better, but this sinus headache just won't go away. It seems to be worse when I lay down at night. My eyeballs hurt! LOL! I wish I would either just get sick or get better. Started antibiotics today. We'll see.

Sheila's stitches do look perfect but I'm betting yours would too. I had forgotten about that wool bed rug you had wanted to make. Do it!!

I'm betting you feel much better tomorrow . . hope so anyway. Not fair to feel bad on the weekend.

I have seen a wool BOM (Album applique style) that has intrigued me for a while...

Love that wool Vicky. I have a question ...... do those layers of wool not make the block bulky? Would you need to cut away the back of piece after putting something on top? Am I making sense?

Hope you feel 100% real soon.
