Wild and Woolie...

 If you are a regular reader, then you know that I belong to a Woolie Group called the 'Five Bags Full'.  Yesterday The Bags met for fun, food and felted woolie laughter!  Our challenge this year is to make one bowl filler pillow to represent each Season.  This was our Summer Pillow reveal...

 Glynis made TWO pillows...I can't say that she is an over achiever because I did the same thing! :o} I think we both just wanted our bowls to be full!  Glynis' strawberry pattern is just shouting SUMMER!  Love it!  NOTHING says Summer like the sweetness of a berry!  You might even remember the was a FREE one from Scrap, Quilt,Stitch Quilt Blog...I have the pattern SOMEWHERE! :o))

  Glynis' second also adorable...a sweet basket with summer flowers!  Ahhhdorable!
Wait a minute!  Glynis made THREE pillows!  She is such an over achiever!!  haha  She also made this wonderful sunflower pillow!  Yes, her Summer bowl runneth over...
 Here's Julie's Summer pillow...A Summer Geranium in two shades of red wool!  Picture perfect and dang sweet!  Julie stitched this while on a road trip to meet her Woolie deadline!  We take this Pillow sharing VERY seriously!!

I tried to get a side shot so you could see the 3-D effect that the petals create!  Each flower is held down with a french knot!  LOVE IT!

 And a close-up!  This one is SEW going into my Summer bowl!!
 I also loved Claire's pillow!  Nothing says Summer like a basket full of Summer Flowers!  Love the details on this pillow...the green yarn woven through the blanket stitch around the pillow and tied with a bow at the side! SEW sweet!  Such a wonderful touch!  Another keeper!

Sandy's pillow was also gorgeous...wee Forget-Me-Knots in a Friendship Ring...What a sweet and wonderful keepsake of our Woolie times together!  I'm sure Sandy had this in mind as she stitched this adorable pillow!!
And you have already seen my two pillows in previous posts! (top of the picture below). No secrets here! haha Wouldn't all of these pillows look wonderful displayed in a great big bowl!!  I better get stitchin'!

Today the Woolies are off to the Nanaimo Quilters' Guild Quilt Show...can't wait to see what kind of mischief we can get into!  Here's your invitations~

Hope to see you there!

Have a Fantastic FUN Friday and Happy Stitching!~P


  1. The geranium is so very pretty. Must have taken a good bit of time cutting out all those little flowers.

  2. Those pin keeps are just so summery. The geranium is beautiful and lots of work with the little flowers (I did a wall hanging making geraniums like that--took forever). What are you stuffing yours with?

  3. Love them all! You are a talented group of "Woolies!"

  4. Those are all such beautiful pillows and I do like the 3D flowers.


  5. All of the Woolies summer time pillows are Ahhdorable!

  6. Wow, they are all gorgeous, AND they look great together! This morning I was thinking that it is getting too hot for wool, but maybe you have inspired me to stick with it a little longer. Thanks for sharing!

  7. "The Bags" out did themselves with these sweet little pillows! I hope you had a great time a the quilt show.

  8. Oh these are all so the gardenia the best!
