As you know I have joined the Wool Crazy Sew Along gang…so this is what I have been up to…
Yes, I sacrificed a package of Starbucks coffee to tone down my yellow wool…. So with the smell of wet wool and coffee permeating the 5th wheel…I did a lot of this….
And with my trusty bible beside me (Wool Crazy by JoAnn Mullaly) I did A LOT of this…arranging and rearranging…harder than you think!!
YIKES!…What a mess….
BUT…it was worth it…so step one is done!! As I look at this picture there are a lot of pieces I would like to change…BUT the camera has made the yellow jump out …there are some pieces I would like to move…but they are basted down so they are going to STAY….I SAID…STAY….
No, I am NOT talking to you…good dogs!! (The secret to GOOD dogs is lots of walks and three trips to the Dog Park every day…see it works…)Now if only my wool would STAY!
So now I need to cut off the edges to my 24 inch block (it is now 26 inches), baste down the edges and give it a good pressing. And then, according to JoAnn, the REAL fun starts…the appliqué!! She has SO many beautiful appliqué patterns to choose from that I think the difficult part is going to be to actually PICK one!!
AND on the stitching front~
I have ALMOST completed six block of the Little Patchwork Village…three more to go!
I have really enjoyed stitching these little guys. I keep them in one of those little blue Rubbermaid bins and take them with me where ever I go…to the Laundromat, the pool, for a drive, to bed…and before you know it…they magically get done!
Have a Fun Friday and Happy Quilting!!
