Finishes and A Giveaway

 
While I was in Branson, Mo during the months of September and October I had Monday's and Tuesday's off from vending at Silver Dollar City.  There is a special lady by the name of Carolyn Snyder that has a beautiful wool shop over the garage of her home.  It is a shop that you just want to stay and linger in!  She invited me to come over as often as I could and I eagerly excepted.  The above wooley quilt is one I just finished and is designed by her "Cricket Street Wool" and you can find her on Facebook.
She has so many wonderful wool applique designs and of course I gathered up a few to do.  I will be carrying her patterns in my little shop once it is all built....hopefully by spring!
 

 
Today I also finished up this little quilt by All Through The Night.  I simplified the pattern by just quickly sewing the blocks together and adding a little feather stitch along the stitch lines.  Love how it turned out!
 

 
Now for a little giveaway....Before the ice storm hit us I dyed up some cherry red wool yarn.  It works wonderful for Oxford Rug Punch and for binding rugs.  Along with the cherry red yarn I will included a couple of other hand dyed yarns as well.
 
So for all the folks that love a little bit of wool fabric for hooking or applique I will also be giving away a bit of wool fabric. 

 
I will draw two names on Wednesday, December 3rd.  So if you would like a chance at the wool yarn and the wool fabric just leave a comment and if you don't have a blog leave an email in the comment so I can notify you if you win. 
 
 
Happy Trails....Ginger

Hello Ginger. I met you at Silver Dollar City during the Fall Festival. Your booth was my first introduction into wool applique and needle punch. I purchased a small needle punch kit from your booth as my first project and I love it! I would love to win the wool yarn or fabric. Thanks so much! I look forward to reading your blog. amber (ambermilburn at gmail dot com)
