Wool Gathering

I'd like to thank Cathi, from Shakerwood Woolens, for her personal assistance in choosing these warm and wonderful hand-dyed wool pieces for the project pictured above. You've got to love a business that has the following scripture verse printed on her business form: "She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands." Proverbs - 31:13  The hands are willing; now to just schedule some God-given time for this sweet bird and berries! I believe that the approaching cooler weather will be the perfect time for wool!

Just look at who crept (and flew) into the sunflower block, and just in time for class next week! The symmetry of this block is very appealing, it must be the Libra in me; I'm always searching for balance.
Life is Good!

Cats! Banjo approves. I am going to start a wool table mat soon I think the hardest part is just cutting the wool to start!

I love strawberries. A perfect choice of project. And working with wool is an easy way to applique.

I love doing wool applique especially right now when I can feel the cool air coming!

That bird and berries block is so appealing. And your "balanced" block is a beauty! DH loves symmetry, but he is not a Libra--I wonder what his reason is. : )
