Wool Crazy piece finished!

I've finished my latest wool crazy piece.  It came about from another piece I was working on and I decided to combine them together. Can see my initials, shh in the top right corner and the date 2010 below the Christmas tree.
 I decided not to make it directional, to keep interest in it.  I use a crescent moon and star along with my initials for my label on the back of most pieces I make.  Here it was fun to incorporated them in the wool.
 I managed to cover the four seasons in this piece.  This portion is mainly Autumn and Winter.
 This area is mainly Spring and Summer.  I used some original designs and adapted some from JoAnn Mulaly's Wool Crazy book.
 As you may have noted, there is a snowflake button the the Christmas tree, as the piece fold up on itself.  Because it is a Huswif Sewing Case.
 Here is the inside, designed by our friend Kaaren Johnston from The Painted Quilt.  I made mine a bit wider and did not curve the top as she did on her design.  I also added an additional tulip pocket to hold a needle threader.
There are two pockets to hold addition things you may need for your next sewing project.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I have making it.  Now onto something new.

Wow... love it... I have made my base.. wasn't that crazy about it but I should just go with it rather than trying to "Plan" it to fit what I might applique ...you've given me the inspiration to just do it, as they say.. lol

Lynn said...

Wow, lovely! I have made my base but haven't gotten started with adding the applique..I'm afraid it won't look as good as those I've seen but I guess I just need to get started and it will come together. Thanks for the inspiration.
