    Hi.. I love reading about wool and seeing the projects you have made.. I have two wee pin cushion kits to make here (I seem to collect pincushions???) and I might have to drag them out and not be afraid of wool anymore!

    I am one of those with a stash of wool skirts and slacks. They are on my "one of these days" lists.

    My great grandmother made quilts with like-weight fabrics; ie, corduroys and wools. I loved one specific quilt because of the different textures.

    Thank you for you part in the blog hop!


    Thank you for the ideas in your blog. I am inspired!
