A start or a finish....

Only a few more weeks and it will really feel like autumn...can't wait!  I have a stack of wool projects just waiting for the weather to turn...

At the show last month up in Columbia I found a new wool project designer..

it was only her second or third show.  She had her daughter and granddaughter working in her booth!  I've read through her pattern and at first glance looks well written.  

I bought this "worm of wool" from Shakerwood Woolens to add some fun colors to the projects.  These pieces are only 2 inch square but enough for a spark.  She has added some clear colors to her line and I really like them.  Sometimes wool can be a bit too muddy for my eye.

In the meantime I am trying to finish up a few Halloween projects for this year.

This is a little string pieced bag that still needs straps...should get on that today.  Also I have the tumbler quilt that only needs two more rows...surely I can finish that!

Of course it would be easier and faster to finish if I got off the computer and onto the sewing machine!  Have a great weekend everyone.  I'm off the finish something!

I am laughing WITH you and not at you because I have two more rows to put onto my tumbler quilt also!
The string pieced bag is a cutie!

Love your orange chicken and the "worm of wool" too... it's nice to see some less muddy wool colors!

I'd get a LOT more done iffen I got off the computer... but it's so fun!

The Worm of Wool looks really fun!

Great looking pattern for the needle and scissor keep! And I love Shakerwood's wools - your wool worm would be nice to just look at!

Well it's freezing here!!!! So Autumn is upon us :( Wish it wasn't as my studio really feels the chill. Good luck with those finishes.
