Wool Crazy

Here is my latest handiwork project. It feels great to be working with wool again!!
I like to add my applique pieces and then do the embellishing.
This is my fall and winter square. Although you may not be able to tell right now what some of this is supposed to be, hopefully it won't be too long until it will look familiar.

Giant size snowman compared to my houses!!

So after feeling like I needed an extra hand or two or three, I decided to rotate my hand work projects. Basically, I have Wool Crazy, Beyond the Cherry Tree applique, hand quilting my Jane Stickle quilt, then misc...mostly consisting of hand quilting small projects. I figured three or four days for each project should let me enjoy each one of them. I'm not in any hurry to finish, but love them all and want to work on all at the same time!
My other plan is to always have an applique block ready to take with me. It seems to be the most portable project.

Thank you all for your wonderful tips and suggestions. I appreciate it so much!

Part 3 of Midnight Stars will be posted on Friday.

  2. I have noticed you working with wool before. I have a lot of wool. I picked up a bunch of bright colors and cool plaids. Do you have any suggestions for a wool applique project I could get going on?

  9. Love your wool crazy work. I have 2 drawers of wool kits waiting for me. My problem with wool is that once I start I want to keep going and going and going.... a girl needs to sleep too. LOL

  16. I am rotating my hand projects and right now I'm doing the BTCT and the hand quilting of baptist fans. Plus I have 2 bindings sitting on the couch that need to be done by hand. Between working 40 hrs, quilting for others, Geez, not enough hours in the day. Instead of a pay raise, I asked for more time off this year. Crossing my fingers!

  19. Beautiful wool project. I am like you. I rotate the things I do. It is also healthier on your joints. Breaks are very important to prevent injuries. I am loving the doll quilt.
