Crazy About Wool

                                                            Pieced Brain announcement
 It is my day to share my love of wool with you , thanks to Denise of Pieced Brain for hosting this fun hop and also the great sponsors .I have played around with wool for years, first with knitting and crocheting but since I discovered quilting they have been on the back burner , however I discovered how wonderful wool fabrics can be to work with as applique and also for piecing so I will share a few projects I have made over the years first.
I made this pillow a few years ago from a quilt magazine , sorry I forget which one . I pieced the background with wool scraps than appliqued the flower on top. My very first wool project was this next penny rug.
I should have ironed this as I can see the indentation of the lamp that rests on this . My friend Dianne K gifted me with this next cute penny rug.
Isn't it cute !I love angels and this gets plenty of use on my sewing table beside my favorite chair in my living room.
This wall hanging was my first attempt of using wool and cotton together , I loved doing this and I am pleased with the results.
 For this hop I started out with this adorable candle mat , my friend Lesley gifted me with the kit recently and I got started immediately making it so it would be ready for this hop.Thanks Lesley .
It is only tiny and the pieces were extra small but I adore it . I then moved on to this cute little sewing caddy a free pattern on All peoplequilt.com ,I have made a few of these over the years and they are quick and easy and quite useful too and make a great gift for a quilter friend ,think Christmas ;-) I just learned this sweet little project was designed by Rosebud Cottage who is also posting today in this hop, so thanks to her for this sweet little sewing caddy!
My final project to share today is something that I had not intended for this hop and didn't even think it would be finished but yesterday a few friends and I got together and made totes , now I wanted to try something a little different so I used some charm squares of wool that I had on hand and made my front and back pieces and from there it became this bag .

The entire bag is made from wool , the interior is a wool plaid that wraps over to create the trim at the top and if you notice the top of the pocket also has a trim . If I were to make another bag using wool I would do things a little differently but it was a great learning experience. I also took part in a pin it blog hop recently and quite a few of my pincushions were wool , if you are interested  here is the link,    http://sheilasquiltworld.blogspot.ca/2013/09/pin-it.html
 Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop ,below is the schedule for today and the rest of the week .
hugs Sheila
