Woolies and trusses

Since I mentioned our Woolie Mammoth group, I thought I’d show you some of the projects that people are working on. I need to remember to have my camera ready for pictures. We are usually having so much fun I forget to take any.

First up, 2 cute blocks for a BOM that Mari is working on. Sorry, can’t remember the name of the BOM.



Some of Sandy’s projects:




A close up…


And this project of hers isn’t wool, but it’s spectacular so I thought I’d throw it in. She finished up Farmer’s Daughter.


A cute scissors case. (sorry, I don’t remember who was working on it).


A darling little mat.


And this cute Christmas bell pull.


Now on to the trusses. They DID arrive on Wednesday after the delays. We have been there every day to see progress but I won’t bore you with a million photos. These were taken yesterday.




That’s my sewing nest, right in the middle on the second floor. Smile

Oh, I do have to share a couple of pics of the crane lifting the trusses.


I was even lucky enough to catch a picture of a truss being delivered to the roof.


It’s only been 5 weeks since we broke ground. It’s really begun to take shape.

Hugs, Anne

oh man has the house changed in such a short time!

I'll be bringing my "pathetic" tree to Woolies on Tuesay. LOL

Thanks for the updates. I love the finish work and painting jobs that Phalisch does. A friend of mine is the one whose crew does the painting. Cannot wait to see all the progress. I also love all the wool projects people are working on. My friend lives farther back as her house is accessed off of Ferguson (??) Road I believe. If you turn left off of 15...then go up about 1/4 - 1/2 mile there is a newer subdivision..her house is right behind the LARGE FLAG POLE.

Absolutely love the pictures! If you can, in the future, would you put links to the patterns? They all look like something I'd enjoy doing. Thanks for sharing!

What a wonderful name for your group - The Woolies. Wait a minute, I belong to a group called The Woolies too! It is obviously a good idea. Love all the projects. The house quilt looks like it might have come from Farmhouse Woolens? Or not. I know they are single patterns too. Anyway, looks like a great group with lots of great ideas & talents.
Your house looks like it will be wonderful. Bet you can't wait!

Darlene said...

Wow, your new house is taking shape very nicely and quickly, too.

I love all the projects the Woolie Mammoths are doing.

Carol said...

All the Woolie's projects are just wonderful...what a great group!
Oh the house is looking great...really taking shape...I loved the day the trusses went up on our house...and then when they closed up the roof and I couldn't see sky through anymore was very exciting.

Colleen said...

Isn't it exciting watching it be framed? We built our house 12 years ago and every day we were at the site poking around and seeing what they did. It was fun to watch! The most exciting moments were when the walls went up and we could walk around in the rooms.... Loved it! Enjoy the process!

Yvette said...

You make me want to move so I can join your group. What wonderful inspiration!!!

OOOH, your house is coming along nicely.

Candace said...

Great projects - and I see it was snowing in the background! I love the Farmer's Daughter - I have the pattern - do you think I'll ever do it? Great photos of the trusses, too! Your sewing nest is huge and I suspect you have the best view in town from it, Anne!

paulette said...

Looking awesome with the house - you are going to have the perfect nest - you might never leave. The progress is amazing for 5 weeks :).

Love those woolie projects - especially that Cherie quilt - is it called Soots and Ashes or something like that - love it all :).

Hugs - Karen

What a crafty and talented group of Woolie Mammoths! That farmer's daughter quilt is amazing. I love it...sewing nest. You'll have a birds eye view of the great outdoors. How exciting it must be to watch your new home take shape.

What a wonderful assortment. Not one project the same.
Your house is coming along nicely. Oh I'm getting pins and needles in anticipation for you..

merumo said...

Your Woolie Mammoth group seems to be such a nice group!! I enjoy looking at all the fun projects. I wish our winter season lasts longer - I'm in Arizona, so that I could enjoy the wooly projects a lot more! Love your holiday decorations and quilts, too.

Cheryl said...

WOW!!!! Each and every project amazing!
