Hello, My name is Tammy

I have decided to come out of lurkdom (is that a word?) and say "hello"!
I also wanted to share what I am up to with the Wool Crazy project. (sorry no pics yet)

I just received my book and have been gathering and ordering wool.
This will be my first real wool project :) and I am very excited about it!
I have also ordered some Valdani pearl cotton and am not so patiently waiting for the package to arrive. I would love to start stitching especially with a big snow storm on the way tonight.

I have been giving this project quite a bit of thought and have decided that I will like to make my Wool Crazy quilt as a journal of my life.
The first block being the first 20 years of my life, the second block the second 20, the third block of what is going on in my life now and then the last block all that I hope and dream for in the future.
Four seasons of nature, four seasons of life :)

I would like to thank Kaaren for being blog hostess and for all of you who have shared your quilts thus far and inspired me.

Until next time,
Best wishes and stitches!

Great idea, I have decided to make mine a flower garden. Your ambitions exceed mine at the moment but these things seem to grow. I'll watch for your updates.

Kaaren said...

Awesome idea, Tammy. Mine hasn't progressed past the preliminary sketching stage but it will in the next little while. I really want to think mine through because it's definitely going to be a work in progress.

I had thought about making mine with a four season theme and that's where my mind still rests.

I can't wait til you get started and show some pics. Hurry up thread!

What a great plan, I never would have thought of that. I can't wait to see how it all comes together! I have no plan other than to fill it with things that I love and that remind me of family, but I am excitedly pulling wools from my stash now that the book has arrived.

Hi Tammy!
Welcome aboard...hope you're CRAZY enough to join us! Your plan for your quilt sounds wonderful!! Can't wait to see it take shape!! Take care!

Sounds like you have a plan. I just received my thread on Monday, so I am almost ready to start sewing, just have to cut out the applique shapes. My plan so far is to do mine a free form seasonal/things I like theme. The first block will represent Jan/Feb/Mar. I think this is going to be a lot of fun working together on this project.

Hi Tammy, I like your idea.
I also want to give my some thought and create a quilt that reflects the things around me, like family and home. Could be a story board...?
