Normally when I prep a wool applique project I get my bins of wool out and then agonize over what colour and texture of wool to use…WELL, that sure didn’t happen this time! I didn’t have bins of wool…I had ‘leftovers’ from another project at my disposal and that was it! It was actually kind of freeing….
And the trees turned out just fine! This is Norma Whaley’s ‘Winter Wonderland’ and it is big…a lot bigger than I thought it would be! These panels are long… I would give you the dimensions but that would mean digging in totes and bags…ouch! Not going to happen this morning…
I thankfully had two pieces of white/beige wool for the birds and just managed to squeak them out…
While I was at it, I cut out the sweetest angel…Norma’s designs are a pleasure to work with! So dang cute!!
For the ‘Winter Wonderland Stitch A Long’ on Facebook, our homework is to have the two trees stitched in the month of January so I better get cracking! The angel is going to be left until February.
This is going to be one gorgeous quilt when done! Any Norma Whaley pattern results in a gorgeous quilt…guaranteed! Have you checked out her patterns lately! I swear, this woman does not sleep! She keeps cranking them out, one after the other! You REALLY need to go and check out her PATTERNS…and then you need to follow HER BLOG, Timeless Traditions…such fun to see these new patterns take shape! She is SEW creative that it boggles the mind!
Well, no playtime for me this morning…it’s laundry day! UGH! I am just waiting for the sun to come up so that I can venture forth! Laundromat here I come! Did I say “UGH”….?
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Stitching!~P
