A Very Woolly Post.

Posted on | November 27, 2018 | 14 Comments

Lots of photos today and all are wool related.

I have completed the central panel of my wool applique piece. I am now completing the pieced stars that make up the border. The photos show the whole piece and then in smaller sections.

The pattern is by Wendy Williams and is called Flocks By Night. I have used a lot of Sue Spargo techniques to embellish the trees and houses. Each tree has a star, but those will not be added until after quilting.

Hopefully next time I show this piece it will have star borders and will be quilted.

Keeping the wool theme going, these are pictures of yarn bombing in Central Melbourne. These particular trees are outside the State Library in Swanston Street and have a definite Christmas theme.

I suppose this means Christmas must be coming soon!

Have a great week.

Cheers, Karen

My downtown assoc. also has each store or office,etc decorates the telephone pole, tree or lamp post that is in front of them facing the street. It is a big contest. Since I'm in FL like you in Australia no snow or salt to ruin things. Thanks for sharing.
