Good Day! I am finally working on my Little Woolie again and swear I will finish it today!!! Haha! So why am I blogging right now! I want to know what color of wool stitching you like to use when you appliqué wool, that's why! :-)
As I have worked on the Little Woolie quilt, I chose to use thread that matched the fabric. The further I get into the project, I wish I had chosen a contrasting thread. The pincushion has contrasting variegated Valdani thread that shows in some spots and blends in some spots where red falls on red.
When I made In the Orange Grove I matched every color! It was lots of work, but it was fun to stitch, so I didn't mind! I think for my next Little Woolie I will try to contrast the thread color with the wool color. Which way do you prefer to stitch your wool? Matching or contrasting color??
The coordinating pin cushions shown HERE went to some new friends the other day. I had Julie of Me and My Stitches and Carolyn of Lee Prairie Designs over this week and we had a fun day of chatting, eating and shopping! It was the best day! If you'd like the pattern for this little pincushion above, please let me know and I'd be happy to send you the PDF for it. Be sure you have reply allowed in your profile so I can reach you!
Last, but not least, don't forget to check the last post for a chance to win a few fat quarters! I'll close that drawing on Sunday afternoon...
