Wool All Round!

Hear! Hear! to all you woolie lovers out there! Come see wool in the round for a bevy of holiday bedizements! Wahoo!

I found this pattern from Primitive Gatherings that is so easy to make, but there was another one that has strawberries and candy corn. I misplaced the pattern because it’s been so long since I first began the project, but the base for this pattern works with the strawberries and candy corn! Yazzer! It’s awesome!

I started this mission of woolie mats with the candy corn. It makes such an awesome backdrop for my Halloween Williraye’s don’t you think? The shape and pieces to the candy corn and strawberry are the same except the candy corn has a little tip on it. Easy to put together and so much fun! I love hunting for just the right hand dyed wool and threads to create my lucious, fluffy friends. They just make me giddy with delight looking at them. Changing them out often and creating a never ending troupe of woolie garnishes keeps me in primitive heaven.

So, after Christmas I was in the doldrums, and thought a little bit of spring was just what the heart needed. I got out the already half-prepared strawberry mat and begain finishing a recipe for happiness! Yes indeedy! When I was finished I looked at that beautiful mat gleefully on my coffee table and thought… there must be more… mwah-ah-ah-ah! One for each month!!!!

So, I’m moving on to the pumpkin mat which is mostly cut out which makes it a quick-finishing project in an afternoon! Well, maybe a little more since pumpkins require embroidered vines. Oh, so much fun!

To be continued… <snicker>

    Great job Mari!!! If you keep showing these, I’m going to find myself looking for more wool to go with the ones I have. Actually, I’ll bet that I could do this while my machine is embroidering, but I’d enjoy it more in the evening curled up in my recliner.
