Hello Everyone! This group is for those who like primitive, not necessarily country, quilting and handwork. It is my hope that we can encourage one another in our endevours as well as swap patterns. Drop in and tell everyone what you are working on that is primitive!

Donna, I was thinking about you & Cindy while I was at The Gatherin'.  I'm sorry that Cindy is not doing well.  I know you are doing your best to keep her as comfortable as possible.  Big hugs to you both.

Janet, I am so glad you got to go to the Gatherings. I so wanted to go but my sister isn't doing well & I just didn't feel I could leave her. I think it is my favorite show by far. Did I see they have one in the summer or fall?

Cindy is vomiting a lot & carrying a high ever. We have had to start her on morphine. We are just taking it one day at a time.

  Haven't had time to work on any of my quilts. My door seems like it is a revolving door. So many people coming & going here. Hospice nurses & friends from church & hospital stopping by.

I have not ck'd out Goodwill yet as I have to go to Columbia MO to find the closest one, but will try to do that the next time I'm there.  Another internet friend recommended Door wool as well.  Yesterday I went to an event called The Gatherin' in Stover MO, which is a small town north of Lake of the Ozarks.  This is basically a vendor mall for quilters and other needleworkers.  There were a few booths with felted wool and the prices were kind of high, but still not to where it would be $52 per yard!  One vendor was selling kits with wool felt, but it felt different than felted wool.  More dense and didn't feel as nice.  She had some really adorable things though and the prices were more reasonable.

At the LQS where I work we sell wool for $.03 a square inch so I don't think that is a good price.  One 8" square would be $1.92!!

Have you ever gone to Goodwill? You can find pure 100% wool clothing for about $2 to $5 each. My friend and I split whatever we get, such as half of a skirt or a blazer. I look for Pendleton, Woolrich, or a tag that says 100% wool.  I wash it in hot water and dry in a hot dryer immediately.  Even if you have to cut away some of the parts with interfacing, you are money ahead.  Also, our best "Dorr Wool" is $29 per yard and it is 60" wide.  You can find wool online that is sold by the square inch.  Let me know if any of this is helpful to you!

(Sometimes I think they are taking advantage of us.)

They sound like fun projects colorado 13.

I received my online newsletter today from Bunny Hill and just about fainted when I saw the price of her felted wool.  Eight 8" squares for $26 is just ridiculous.  That works out to be over $52 per yard.  I know it is more expensive than regular quilter's cotton, but should it really be 4 times as much?

Good to be back; I've been on the main page but not looked at my Groups.  I'm working on Kim Diehl projects this year. One of the clubs at the LQS is doing it; everybody works on any project by Kim Diehl. I'm almost finished with a darling table runner and starting on a quilt called "Bittersweet Briar". I'm doing the black version and I got Primitive Gatherings glack with a vine-y stripe for the background. I've also almost finished a wool applique table runner.  I'll post pics when I'm finished with the tops. Getting things finished AKA quilted seems to take longer.

I'd love to hear about your projects!!

Hope everyone is doing well.  Would love to see pics of what you are working on...prim or not so prim.  I haven't had time for prim-ing lately.  Lots of CW and other stuff.

Here's what I worked on last week...

Still in my 'green' phase...this is for me!
And these are for a block swap...not my colors but fun to participate!

Thanks for the welcome Colleen.  I like your Irish Chain quilt.  Making one of those has been on my "to do list" for far too long.   Since you also do machine embroidery, do you belong to the machine embroidery buddies group here on QWU?  If not, you should come on and join.  We are a fun group too.
