I’m crazy! During the hot spell we had, I continued working on WOOL projects. Here are the stockings I finished. Now I just have sew the lining.
This is a picture that I scanned from the book “Primitive Christmas” from Primitive Gatherings. Just wanted to show you what Santa's beard looks like (from my previous post).
I think I’ve decided to use wool roving and hot glue it down. Easy peasy!
So…it has cooled down by almost 30 degrees, Woo Hoo, and what am I working on now? Why COTTON of course! See what I mean? I’m officially nutzo!
It’s a pattern by Bonnie Blue Quilts and I’m using the Sturbridge Village calicos.
Lots of half square triangles. I always oversize them and then trim to size. Makes for much more accurate piecing. Here are my “trims”.
Hmm, look who’s nesting.
He’s thinking that if he can’t see me, then I can’t see him! Sorry Jack, I know what you’re up to!
I’m still finding my “trims” all over the house. LOL
I’ll show you more of the quilt when I start putting it together. One thing I know for sure…I like hand work much more than machine piecing. Is that another “nutzo” thing? Oh heaven help me!
