New Wool Crazy project

This is my next wool crazy project.  Our pin cushions are still being worked on but we won't be showing any more pictures for awhile until two of our group get back from vacations.  I decided to try a different shape to work with another project.  Several of these wools I found as clothing in thrift shops and felted them. I basted them onto a piece of Osnaburg.
I've started to do some crazy stitching and removing the basting as I go.  I'm still deciding what appliques I'll add to the piece.  I'm mixing both DMC perle cotton and Valdani cottons at the present.  I may add some wool threads into the mix.

Love the long thin strips. Give me an idea for borders around a center block. I need to find some light colored wools.

Hi Sandi - love the different shape you are doing - the long strips are a great idea! Looking forward to seeing it progress.

Thanks Debbie and Kelli

The piece is going to be about 8" x 20" when done. I wanted to challenge myself with a bit of a different look and shape.

Stay tuned for some more pictures.
