I received a package yesterday from Pam in Illinois. Several weeks ago I asked if anyone had some 100% wool from skirts or blazers or whatever that they didn’t want so I could start a repurposed felted wool stash for applique – we have little of that kind of thing in the “Goodwill” type stores here in the upper south – in my particular area anyhow – Pam got in touch with me and said I could have some of her stash as she had tons of it. She has found lots of wool up there in the chilly north at the used clothing shops that she has felted. She shares it with her mom and had plenty on the shelves. I didn’t expect so much!! Thank you Pam very much for getting my wool stash started – I have enough to work with for a very long time now –all kinds of colors – the bags have small pieces and some of those large pieces are quite large!! I see wall hangings and table runners and things in my vision now!!
See how big some of those pieces are!! All I can say is WOW – quilters sure come through for other quilters don’t they. Pam I don’t know how you got it all in that box – I unpacked it all to drool over it and see the wonderful colors and couldn’t get it back in the box – I need to clear a shelf or get another clear plastic box out that I can see through now to look at it.
I decided to make a scrap binding for the Butterfly Parade and leave the quilting as I showed it yesterday. I am using scrap pieces from the Patchwork of the Crosses quilt that I made several years ago as the fabric kind of went with this quilt.
I am done with the hand stitching on two sides and will continue working on this binding for Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy’s Quilts I am also linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework and Podunk Pretties and Tweety Loves Quilting.
Mama Deer and the twins were back to eat last night – they weren’t in the garden this time – not much left in it for them to enjoy! This area is very close to the house and I took the photos through the window.
