Crafty Claire’s Creative Christmas Creations ~ Part 2!

image Claire has been one VERY busy girl!  And a talented one at that!!  This is one of Claire’s wool penny rugs~  isn’t Frosty just adorable!  It was work like this that inspired me to try my hand at making penny rugs.

Claire has become famous for her little wool pins~ She whips these little wool pins up for friends, colleagues, her son’s teachers…and for all seasons!!

This is the one that she made for me last year…(she knows that I love snowmen)…I placed a penny beside it so that you could see how tiny these pins are…they are so incredibly sweet!P1030809

This is what Claire is working on right now.  It is a Wool Felt Table Topper/Wall Hanging called  Winter Sampler by Heart to Hand.  Just gorgeous work!

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!

  3. those little pins are just darling! She must have good vision to be able to do that kind of detail in something so small! What caught my eye though was that snowman penny rug. That's a design by SewUnique and it's one of the very first penny rugs that I ever made way back 10 years ago or so. Brings back fond memories... and just goes to show that a good design will be around for a loooong time! Fitting all those pennies around the circle is really tedious! Claire did a nice job on that.

  10. Guess what I've done cos of your posts with snowmen and woolwork? I've ordered a couple of patterns and can't wait for them to arrive. It's all your fault.

  11. You were right about Claire and the beautiful work she does. I like the new sampler she is working on, using the wool roving. (Might be something else for me to try!) The straight stitch around the edges is a great touch. (I even think hers looks better than the one on the pattern!)

    I agree with Sue, you've "made" me buy patterns. LOL. If I were a designer, I'd go to you for the free marketing!
