I have some finishes to report. First I finished the candle block which is part of the Christmas Mystery Quilt Blog Hop from Farmhouse Threads. I love it. I'm waiting for the next block kit to arrive from Rusty Crow which is a cute reindeer. I ordered the next block from Wooden Spool Designs which is the cutest block ever with a sheep and Christmas tree. It's not to late for you to join in on all the fun. These are wool applique blocks and I'm ordering all the kits as I have yet to build up a wool stash. I'm sure that will come and soon I hope. I need to find a place to purchase wool close by or online. Any suggestions?
In an attempt to build that wool stash, I visited our local Goodwill store and snagged two men's wool jackets, felted them, and now am deconstructing them. Here is the pile from yesterday and there is still more to go. One of the jackets was a brown tweed and the other charcoal. My next trip will hopefully be this next Wednesday (senior day and 50% off) so I can look for some wool skirts as I think they would be much easier to deconstruct that the men's jackets.
My next two finishes were the next two hexagons (Merry and Jesus) for the Christmas Wreath Stitch-Along by Jenny of Elefantz. One more to go and then instructions for putting them together. I am enjoying doing some embroidery work again. Thank you Jenny for these free patterns.
I'm still working on my hexie project and have 4 of the 36 "rose" ones that I need. I didn't have enough of the material to make them all the same so am alternating the rose patterns.
Hoping you are enjoying your weekend, I know I am.
Linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday over at Kathy's Quilts. We sure to join in.
