Wool Crazy

Here's what I got done on my Wool Crazy during my 4 days of handwork.
I'm planning on adding some buttons down the center and making a few more snowflakes.


Simple addition to the row houses.

A little autumn vignette.

If you'd like to learn more about Wool Crazy please check out JoAnn Mullaly's blog.  I ordered the book through Country Loft. She has a new book out called Crazy at Home that I want to get my hands on!!


My next rotation of handwork projects was quilting my Jane Stickle, but I did manage to get three quilt bindings on so I am going to start on them tonight!! Woo-Hoo that means 3 quilts almost done!!

  20. You're really getting stuck into it so far this month. I just love the wool crazy. I guess you could embelish it as much or as little as you want. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilts.

  21. Love your wool crazy. You did get a lot done on it. But when you start it is hard to put down. I have her book and I ma making this quilt also. I just started with wool last fall and I am hooked. It is so nice to work with and the different threads that you can use with it.

  24. The stitches you've added to the wool pieces is wonderful! It really brings the pieces to life and adds so much extra charm.
    There's something soothing about working with wool in the Winter isn't there?
    Im sure if I got either one of those books in my hands, I'd be chucking my current projects aside and grabbing for my wools! LOL

  25. Your wool quilt is really coming along. I love it! Which quilts are you binding? That will be three finished - that's really progress!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh Lori, your stitching really brings all the wool goodness to life!

    Can't wait to see what you are binding.
