We just love working with the wool and it is good to see other people enjoying it as well. It is so easy to work with, it doesn't fray, you don't need to fuse it on to the background before stitching, you just staple it on and stitch away!! Deirdre's thumbs are always 'discoloured' from all of the hand dyeing and if anyone didn't know her properly, they would think she never washed!! But it is certainly worth it, just take a look at these gorgeous colours . . .
Sorry that the photo's are a little dark, but it gives you an idea of the 'gorgeousness'!!
We have both completed our projects for our upcoming 'Christmas Gathering' which is to be held on September 20th and we are pretty happy with them. The day is approaching fast so we need to be organised in advance. The week after the Gathering will see us playing host to a group of ladies from New South Wales who are coming down for a week of sewing and fun with us here in the shop. We are really excited and by the sound of it, from the last email we received, they too, can't wait! There are lots of quilts here that they can choose to make, so we're sure they will have a ball.
This week sees us getting ready to send out our monthly Woollen Pincushion Club and Deirdre's 'Autumn Pathways Block of the Month, so it is going to be very busy.
The chocolate is still sitting here in its wrapper so I think it is time that I gave it some air - after all, it is after 10am . . . . . . have a great week.
Until next time,
Leonie and Deirdre - The Quilted Crow
