Flowers in Wool

This pattern is Flowers by Linda Brannock. I'm going to hand applique wool onto homespuns/brushed cotton. I've been prepping them for a road trip. I'm channeling Paulette, but doubt I'll get as much done as she does, but I'll be ready anyway.

I cannot get two of these photos the correct direction.....
I do not use glue and fusible web doesn't seem to work for me with wool, so I am using my stapler and a few pins to hold the pieces in place.

I plan on using cotton thread and a primitive whip stitch. Road trip to commence in 6 days!!
Have a fantastic day!!

  1. I hadn't thought about doing the flowers in wool for that pattern but I like the look and am going to consider that for when I work on mine.

  2. I love these flowers--they look great in wool.
    Isn't it nice to be able to do some pleasant stitching while traveling and having something so pretty to show for it?

  4. Love it...looking forward to getting mine all prepped as well....well...maybe it will be one month at a time. LOL...I do have A - F traced and I think J as well. My back grounds will be more on the darker side so hope it looks ok.

  6. YUM! I like to use a little dab of Elmer's glue stick to hold my wool pieces in place till I can stitch them down. Works pretty good!

  7. The Homespun & brushed cotton backgrounds are wonderful with wool applique. Handwork is so relaxing.

  10. A stapler! Well for crying out loud, I would have never thought of using a stapler! And why not! Whatever works! It probably works very well too. Have to try that next time. Thanks for the tip. Lovely blocks! Can't wait to see this one finished. Thanks for sharing Lori.

  21. This blog post was hiding from me, it just appeared. I love your flowers!! you can always just use thread to baste it with. Pulling staples out might make a person cranky.....

  25. Woo hoo - love the blocks. Staples are the way to go, (and to get them out just fold the staple in half and remove). Are you going to embellish the blocks too? Have fun!!
