Pushed to the Back Burner…

I have finished stitching these two woolie blocks but need to set them aside to work on more important SANTA work!!  YIKES!  I am ALWAYS running out of time!


You may remember these two blocks from a blog hop that happened a couple of years ago…where Granola Girl gave this pattern away FREE!  (she has since pulled it from her blog…)

P1200916They really remind me of (start the music here…) Christmas’ of long, loooonnnng ago… going out into the woods and cutting down a tree with my Dad and brother!

My dilemma is should I turn them into a little wall hanging or one or two pillows?? 


I better hurry up and decide because look at what Lisa from Primitive Gatherings gave away for FREE……IF you ordered $25 or more in her Black Friday Sale!!  The pattern is now for sale on PG’s website.  Yup…this pattern is coming to my house…and it is also mighty sweet!


So I better get stitching…I need to get my Santa stuff finished because Granola Girl’s project is awaiting…and THIS is the year to get ‘er done!

Remember I said Granola Girl gave this pattern away during a Blog Hop from two years ago…well it was Buttermilk Basin’s ‘Home for the Holidays Blog Hop’…the same Blog Hop that happens EVERY year!  In fact this years’ event starts tomorrow!!  You KNOW where I will be tomorrow morning…bright and early!!!

Have a Super Sunday and Happy Quilting!


  1. Those are fun and they would make nice pillows and then make the new one to lay across the top of the couch?


  2. I sure am glad that I did some investigating of Buttermilk Basin after seeing your cute items. They are located about 6 miles from my house. ;)

  3. I LOVE that block with the pickup truck! Your work is always inspiring! Thanks for sharing!
    Cheery wave!

  4. I'm going to be doing the Shop Hop tomorrow along with you and hundreds, maybe thousands of others. I still having made (most) of what I printed from last year, but I keep thinking "some day".

  5. I'm in favor of two pillows. Each being a huggable comfort.


  6. I am so looking forward to Buttermilk!!! I like the two blocks as a wallhanging...but that is just personal preference.

  7. Oh Paulette, your wool blocks...or pillows...are gorgeous! And I love how you share so many fun things with us! That free pattern is adorable! Yay you! I will look forward to visiting the blogs that you listed!

  8. Love your wool blocks! Very sweet.

  9. Love your woolie blocks- so, so cute!!:) Now, more coffee to check out the blogs- thanks! Have a great day!:)

  10. Did you have a great time teaching? Can't wait to see the pics!...I am very upset, I forgot about Lisa's open house, but I did order the coupon. Can't wait till the Hershey show, Lisa is teaching and a few of our BSers want to attend a class...keep up your teaching and you might get to be teaching along with Lisa!
