Welcome to my day on the Crazy About Wool Blog Hop. Thanks Denise for being our hostess for this event.
I have been playing with wool in one way or another for years.
I have tried spinning it
and I have crocheted and knitted, the adventure of learning to make socks
and hats and scarves too numerous to include here
I have enjoyed making sweaters - and with the help of my ever present assistant I have enjoyed photographing them
I have also used wool yardage to make a bag. I found the pattern here http://ayumills.blogspot.com/
With a matching purse, pattern by Madame Samm
My latest wool kick is using the felted version in applique. I have found that I am not into big projects using this method but I really like small pieces.
Almost everything I have tried in this genre is from patterns by Michelle May over at Raspberry Rabbits http://theraspberryrabbits.blogspot.com/
I have found that my most favorite thing to do is make her postcards. As soon as she posts a new one I order it and the kit if its available. Here are the cards I have worked up for this hop.
Spring, this is the second one I made of this pattern. I actually mailed the first one to a friend. It made it to her mailbox unscathed workmanship wise but got black ink smudges on it from being under a damp shopping flyer in her mailbox. They make cellophane mailing wrappers which I will probably use in the future.
Love this slice of watermelon, so summer.
And this is the first of 5 of her Halloween cards that I have finished.
And here is the second only 3 to go. You can easily get one done in an evening.
Each post card measures up at 4 inches by 6 inches.
I understand Christmas postcards are on the drawing board.(edit, did you see her posting on Monday, a Christmas Post Card) Can’t wait.
These are wonderful projects, quick and easy to do, leaving you with that great feeling of accomplishment. Thanks for the fun Shell.
Please stop by and visit the other hoppers for today, so much talent and so many ideas to run with.
Thanks so much for visiting here.
