Now with the cooler weather has anyone gotten their crazy quilt out?
I'm gonna try and get back to it this Fall and Winter.

Happy sewing, Kim

Wool Crazy Pincushion Update

Hi!  Do you remember the group of friends I did my wool crazy round robin with last fall?  This was Debbie's top when she got it back after we all had stitched on it.
 Yesterday I went for a visit and she has it finished!  She decided to remove some of the buttons and do some addition wool work on her section.  She then stuffed it with fiber fill and around the outside crushed walnut shells so it wasn't too heavy.
 Here is a close-up of her revised section.  Didn't she do a lovely job?
Well done Debbie, I'm sure you will enjoy it for many years to come.

New Wool Crazy Patterns

Thisngs are awfully quiet around here so I thought I'd post some new patterns I've added to the shoppe just in case a little inspiration is required. We ll loose our Mojo sometimes so here are some links to get you back on track! Have fun!
Wool Garden Crazy

Oh this one has a vintage feel without going lacey. Fun without cute, Spring without pastels... gotta love that!

Wool Ark Crazy
I love Noah's Ark, so this one was a no brainer. I had to have it!

Wool Crazy Fall Block

Look how much I've finished!!

I have finished the appliques on the Fall block. I may add a few more small ones here and there to fill in. Next I will add all the embroidery stitches and embellishments. WOW, I can't believe I have this much finished.

I also made this little pillow adapted from the Crazy at Home book.

I'm really enjoying this craziness!

Happy Stitching,

First Block

Wool Crazy First Block

I decided to make my blocks seasonal. I started this project last Fall and that is why I'm still working on the Fall Block. That explains the turkey at the top. Now I want to start on the Spring block. I'm yearning for tulips and bunnies. I am going to try to finish this block first. But I have a feeling I will be yearning for Summer (or maybe Fall again) by the time I finish. I love hand sewing the wool appliques on, but it is time consuming.

Happy Sewing!
