Quilt With Us

What do you do when a friend gives you half their wool stash? Hummmm…

I was over at Teri’s house when she decided to purge her wool stash. Now, this is not just a casual stash; it was a well-cherished, thought-out cache of woolie love. And, this is only half of it!

 Look at that pile of fluffy joy! Not only did I receive lots of wool but wool kits as well as patterns! Wahoo! It was like winning the lottery!
Among the kits was this sweet fella…
A little crumpled and almost finished, he was waiting to be set free. Now, if you don’t know, Teri is a little obsessed with snow people, but she developed a serious sensitivity to wool. This little guy is a wool blend though; that’s not so bad, right?! It just makes him a little blurry. Shhhhh, he doesn't know any better...
So I took my little orphan out and warmed him up with an iron. The wrinkles came out easily. All that needed to be done now was stitching the pennies to the perimeter and that only took one episode of the Pretender to get it done!
Oh, did I see a little smile peeking out through his scarf! Awe, he knows he's going home!

Oh my goodness - what a wonderful gift you got!  Love the snowman.  So sorry Terri can't deal with wool.  (My dad was allergic to wool and in WWII their uniforms were ... wool, as was their mummy bags that they had to sleep in.  Not fun.)  Looking forward to seeing what new and wonderful creations you will be making with all that wonderful fabric.
