You've Got To Start Somewhere!

Here's some eye candy ladies! This is Julie Heinen's Wool Crazy project. It's 14" round and it was made using the Flip and sew method (see video on earlier post). She skipped the batting altogether because she is going to use a wool backing and thought it would be heavy enough without it. She did use the book Wool Crazy for the applique and embroidery.
Isn't it gorgeous???
This is the first time I have seen it made in light colors and it is just as beautiful as in the darker primitive palette. Julie doesn't have a blog but wanted me to share this with all of you. Thanks Julie! Keep Up the good work, we can't wait to see more...
I forgot to mention this is her first Wool Crazy Project. What a star, eh? You go girl!
Hope everyone is working on something fun! Brenda

This is beautiful! I posted the first "teaser" on my blog post for tomorrow that I will be joining you for a wooly round robin project. I am all ready for my trip to Iowa. Time to turn out the lights. Parties over here and I am headed south for more party fun. :-)

Wow! That's beautiful! I need to start with a small one like that...I did put together a 24x24 background all ready to go, which almost killed me cutting up wool like that LOL but I haven't put a thing on it because I said "now what?" LOL I should definitely start with a smaller project like this.

Wool projects just make my heart sing and with this one, I don't even need a microphone!

Fantastic........can't wait to see it done!
Great use of color and applique placement.

Its just too darn hot to work with wool.......I have no A/C and will wait for Fall to get back to it :0)

I'm always gathering ideas though!

Happy Sewing
