My friend Claire, has been busy working on the ‘Merry Christmas Quilt’ by Heart to Hand! Here’s a picture of the pattern so that you can see for yourself just how beautiful this wool quilt is!
We both love this pattern…but Claire decided to ‘tweak’ a block or two…or three!! Check out her changes…
She’s revamped the Christmas Angel…(love the new and improved version!!) and instead of the bird with the long tail feathers, she has added two sweet birds and a bird house! The birds are off Norma Whaley’s pattern ‘Pine and Holly Runner’ and look wonderful teamed up with a birdhouse!
Claire also wanted Rudolph on her quilt so she got rid of the white flowers under the “Merry Christmas” and added a reindeer!! Love it!!
So what do you think? Pretty darn nice if you ask me!! Makes me want to break out the red and green wool!!
Hey speaking of WOOL…have you checked out the PRICE of hand dyed wool lately!! What’s with THIS?…Over at Primitive Gatherings Online Shop hand dyed wool is now $60.00 a yard!!!!! YOWZERS!! You heard me…That’s SIX ZERO Big-buckolas!! Over at Hollyhock Hills Designs it is still only $31.00 a yard!! That’s a difference of $29.00 a yard!! YIKES…that’s HUGE!! Please go and check it out…compare for yourself!
I have ordered from Hollyhock Hills before and I can tell you this…it is top quality premium hand dyed wool…the SAME wool that Primitive Gatherings and the other Wool Shops sell!! Hollyhock Hills is run by one lady, Melvina and she works her tail off to give us the best for the least amount of money!! Melvina also charges just what the shipping costs and she takes the packages to the post office herself so she can get the best deal! Her service is fast and efficient…and she tries her darndest to give us the biggest bang for our buck…and I for one APPRECIATE it!! So if you need wool, give her a try…you won’t be sorry!! And NO, I don’t get any kick backs for writing this…I am thankful that Melvina is able and willing to sell her wool so reasonably…I’m sure she is making very little on her wool, so the more business she gets, the better it is for her… and for us!! We have to support the little guy!! So please SPREAD THE WORD…that’s Hollyhock Hills Designs for all your hand dyed and bolt wool! It’s gorgeous stuff!
OK…enough preaching for one day!! Thanks for popping in and have a super sunny Saturday!~P
