A Wool Crazy Thanksgiving!!

Before I mail off Lori’s Wool Crazy Pin Cushion base I just have to show you the FINISHED product…yes I worked on it again!  That’s the joy of Wool Crazy…you can ALWAYS add stitches here and there…anyways there was an empty spot!  YIKES! Not an empty spot…well actually there was an empty CORNER and I couldn’t send it back with an empty CORNER! ..SEW…

Karen had stitched a wasp’s nest on my little mat and I LOVED it..and nothing says a hot summer day quite like bees can :o} so that’s what I stitched in that little corner!  I also stitched a spray of blue delphinium…my favourite summer flower.

NOW I can send Lori her wool crazy pin cushion top back to her …FINISHED…THE END!

I would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends out in Blogland…or to anyone else celebrating Thanksgiving for that matter!!

MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY,
MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.
MAY YOUR POTATOES 'N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS.
MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving Monday and Happy Quilting!~P

  4. The pin cushion is beautiful. Actually, all the pin cushions are gorgeous. Someday I will have to try working with the wool and make one.
    Love the poem. How true is that?
    Can't wait for our Thanksgiving. I love all those goodies and the gathering of family. We have our Christmas at Thanksgiving also, so we call it Thanksmas. We leave shortly after that for the south.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving, isn't the weather on the west coast wonderful today!

    The wool crazy piece is great, I can't wait to see how you finish them all off.

    I've got mine back and playing with design ideas to finish it off and then start another one for winter.

  14. Your mats are very interesting. Are they only one layer for the background? When I seen your gingerbread men I knew I would have to try that one in particular-Thanks for adding to my addictions! I see an intervention in my near future!
