It’s a WOOLIE Wednesday!

Remember how I said that my friend Claire is a bad influence…well she is up to her old tricks AGAIN!  Claire placed a wool order…and asked if would I like anything…I of course, said I didn’t NEED anything BUT what was she ordering…WRONG thing to ask! 

I took one look at the samples and told her to double her order!!  What’s a Wool Crazy to do??  Wouldn’t YOU say yes too!!  Just look at this lovely wool…the textures are wonderful!!P1150484-1

Wish you could feel how soft it is….

P1150485

NEXT TIME Claire brings out her sample card and says she is placing an order, I will stick my fingers in my ears, close my eyes and say “Blah…blah…blaaaahhhh” until she puts it away!! 

My name is Paulette…and I have a problem!  If you have the same problem..and would like to place an order than you can go HERE, to Hollyhock Hills!  Talk to Melvina!

For your information I do other things with wool besides stroke it and drool over it…:o)….

I have started to trace out this pattern onto Steam a Seam Lite…

..in the hopes of making this Wool Quilt…The Autumn Quilt by Heart to Hand.

P1150494

My new wool is going to be PERFECT in this quilt…but before I cut it…maybe just a few more strokes and cuddles…

If you are interested, you can order your own pattern HERE and we can work on it together…just sayin’… (A little of Claire has rubbed off on me…:o)

Have a Woolie Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P

  1. Great wools for pennies and wool projects. I think I have all of those, lol. I really do love new wool, thrift is nice but a lot of work. I really need to get my wool organized and start dying all the thrifts. I usually leave the whites and tans for later, in case I need a special color, then I can dye it.

  2. Ha Ha, it's an addiction to be sure!lol!

    As we speak, I am sitting stitching a block of that Autumn quilt and those wools are just going to be perfect for the quilt. Beware, when you start it, the housework will be left to mount up!

    Enjoy it all, I am drooling:)

    Does your friend Claire have a blog too? Sounds like she is a wool addict too:)
