Wooly Wooly

A few weeks ago we made little wool house pin cushions.  

It brought to mind some of the fun wool projects I have done in the past and I thought I'd share them.

Penny rug made from my husbands pants that I felted.


Needle case kit that I bought and then spent years making...


That's a lot of pennies...


Jill and I made these while sitting on her pretty porch.  We laughed and laughed trying to make crooked letters.

 

These are Sue Spargo little birds made into pins.


 My favorite -


Tomorrow I will draw for the Karen Kay Buckley pattern.  If you still want a chance and haven't left a comment yet, you can do that here on this post.

The kitty cat with man pants is excellent! LOL I love that old Thimbleberries print for the frame...those old ones have been brought back in this year's "Flashback" line -- they are what hooked me on Thimbleberries (though not so much lately! ;-D) and to some extent on quilting back in the day!
Haven't gotten bitten by the wool bug, yet. I have a small collection of wools, though, just in case! Great show, Barb!
Blessings,

You've made some great wool projects! I like the early bird best. What a wonderful memory you have of making it together with your friend Jill.

I love the birds and the cluck pins. Wool is so great to work with.
I use my sewing case frequently! But you are so right it took forever to do all those 'pennies'!
Have a super weekend.
