What To Do? What To Do?

Do you save every last bit of your wool scraps like I do? I have pieces as small as 1/4"x1/2" and as large as an inch or so. What do you do with all of your luscious wool scraps? Sometimes I use them to stuff pincushions. It gives the pincushion a very hard finish...very antique like if you ask me. Sometimes I try to use them up for smaller projects and that works well too. But for the rest, I have something in mind...if you want to join in, send me an email and I'll send you a free download for a pattern to try to use up those lovely wool scraps! If you don't send me an email I won't send the pattern, so be sure to send the email to me to let me know you are interested!! See the left side bar for my store gadget to get to my contact link! :-}

It could be a very small project for you...

Or a bit larger project...


But if you have some wool scraps just waiting around...you will want to do this simple project with me! Email me and I will add your email to a list. When I have it ready, you'll get an email with the info! It will be a surprise for a little while longer, then I'll show a picture and we can get started together.

Save those wool scraps! You'll be glad you did!!

I've been stitching away on those pennies and flowers...I'm almost ready to start sewing it all together! Can't wait to show you all!!

Speaking of wool, I have added my latest design for Blackberry Primitives, Josie's Petals, onto my website, www.hallbrookdesigns.com. It is made of hand dyed wools and velvets and has the nicest feel to it. It's an easy stitching piece that's done a bit differently than the traditional way of the antique block, Joseph's Coat. Included with the quilt pattern is two sizes of patterns for a smaller quilt or a larger quilt, and directions for making an antique ball also! You'll never believe how easy it is! If you are interested in ordering a kit for this, email me and I'll get the info to you. I need to begin working on my own model of this quilt because Blackberry Primitive owns the original. My kit just came in the mail and it's all so pretty. There is not enough time for me to do all I want to do!! Again, I can't wait to get started!!


Take care,




  1. I save some and trash others, depends on the wool.
    Some wool is thicker and it is great for little beaks and things.


  2. I absolutely want to be included on the e-mail list for this mysterious wool scrap project!!!! My e-mail is on it's way!!!!!

  3. Oh, not sure I can join in right now, but I don't want to miss out on the pattern. I will send off an email.

  4. Just love those piles of wool - big or small - they are all fun!

  5. You have us all so curious. I will send an email. I only have a few scraps but will have more eventually. Love that new pattern.
    Is that yellow floral circle wool? If so it sure is neat looking.

  6. love seeing your wool projects but i haven't done enough of my own to have many scraps at all.
    i was also curious about the yellow floral circle . . . is it wool? cotton? do you mix wool and cotton? with good results?


  7. Oh you silly girl....now you have piqued my curiosity as to what you are going to do with those wool scraps.....I would love to see your idea in my ever ending quest to deal with my scraps. It's a disease!!!
