Recently I had lunch with friends and fellow wool lovers, Claire and Julie…and of course that means a bit of show and tell!
These are blocks from Heart to Hands ‘Garden Quilt’…what an undertaking for a new woolie!!
Yup, I would LOVE to take credit for these blocks but no, they’re all Julie’s! Julie is new to wool but you would never know it…she’s taken to it like a duck to water…or a bumble bee to a sunflower!
Two blocks DONE…ten more to go!! Can’t wait!
Claire showed us her big WIN from Norma Whaley’s Blog ‘Timeless Tradions’…
I’m so glad that Claire brought it for sharing as it is even more wonderful in REAL life…it was made by Norma herself! We were amazed that she had the time to create something this fabulous for a give away…Norma is cranking out exquisite designs left, right and centre…I swear the woman doesn’t sleep!
Here’s the inside of the Journal…little pocket for your pens…
And a lovely inscription on the first page! Yup, Claire is going to treasure this Journal!!
Claire also brought along this marking pen to share…we are ALWAYS looking for ways to mark wool…especially black wool! This pen gets rave reviews from Claire. It’s an iron off Pencil…
Claire had a wool block that she demoed this pen on but the picture didn’t turn out! DARN! (It was cute too!!) You will have to take our word for it…this pencil works great…and Claire said that after you are finished stitching, you just tap the markings with an iron and presto..they are GONE!! Looks like I am on the HUNT!!
Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you enjoyed the Woolie Luv sent to YOU this morning…I’m sew happy that my friends are stitching because not much has been happening around here! :o}} But I have to say that I am now INSPIRED and that is half the battle!!….RIGHT?
Wishing you a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!~P
