It's no big surprise to those who know me that I've been crazy about wool for over 20 years! I love cutting it up ... I love stitching it on things ... I love making projects with wool. So when Denise at Pieced Brain asked if I'd like to be on the Crazy About Wool blog hop, how could I say anything but yes! Click over to her blog and you'll find the list of who is taking part ... as well as how you can win some terrific prizes! The blog hop started on September 23 and goes through the 27th with a lot of different bloggers taking part. Some talk about wool and others have projects to share. And it's all fun!
What I love about all the bloggers is their wool interests are in various areas ... and they're from all over the world!
For the blog hop, I've designed a simple fall project for you called Autumn Duo Pin and Needle Keeper. I love to tie pincushions on to my scissors or sewing basket handle so that I have a place to park my pins and needles ... especially when I'm traveling. Download Autumn Duo pattern ... you'll need Adobe Reader ... and then print it out to make your own pincushion and needle keeper. Use your favorite fall colors! It's fun and you'll have it done in an afternoon.
I'm not new to blog hops. Some of you might remember my Fall-O-Ween Treat Jar from a few years ago. I made it to store that delicious autumn mixture ... candy corn and peanuts! And of course, the project is made from wool. Are you surprised?
So if you're not convinced by now that I'm crazy about wool you'll have to click over to My Love Affair With Wool. I show some tips for working with wool and a tutorial if you're new to this.
If that's not enough, scroll through American Patchwork & Quilting to find even more wool projects I've designed. You'll have plenty to do for a long long time and then you'll be crazy about wool, too ... if you aren't already!
