Wool and Cotton Finishes

Swag Bag by Sue Spargo

Pearls by Zen Chic

I participated in an Ugly Fabric Quilt Contest for an area church benefit.  This is the Ugly fabric I was given- a whole half yard plus.

 Using the Tiny Wonky Stars pattern by Missouri Star Quilt Co., this is what I did with the ugly fabric.

Summer Bag By Tilda using Tilda fabrics.  Tone Finnanger is the founder and sole designer of the Tilda brand.  She lives in Norway.  I love Tilda fabrics!

Been Playing with Cotton

I discovered some lace zippers and couldn't resist their cuteness. So far I have used them on these little project bags.  Tutorial and pattern can be found at

Quilt time has been devoted to the "Long Time Gone" quilt pattern by Jen Kingwell.  I am generally attracted to traditional fabrics and patterns, but  I am starting to get very interested in modern fabrics and patterns. So much fun to create with these bright, saturated colors. Here are some of the completed blocks on my design wall.

 Hope you have found time to play with fabric!

Happy First Day of Spring!

Two new Woolkeeper offerings to celebrate Spring.

 Peep! Peep!
7" x 9" Wool Applique Banner
Three peeping baby chicks are the stars of this springtime basket of blue flowers. Flowers, chicks and bow are all hand dyed wools. 

New Beginnings
  8" x 8" Wool Applique Banner
A beautiful hand dyed blue sky is the background for this celebration of Spring’s new beginnings. Flower buds cover the hill. Trees are full of new blossoms and the tulips are blooming. A sweet sheep sports a tulip blanket this time. A lavender/pink wreath helps announce the new season.

An Old Irish Blessing

May love and laughter light your days,
And warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
Wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
With joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
Bring the best to you and yours.
