 Pennies for Halloween, my new wool pillow.  Hope to get it completed in the next day or two.  This will be the same size as the other pillows that I am making, this way it will be easy to switch them out for the different months.

Got my Snowbound table topper back from Leisa a couple of days ago.  Absolutely love it!!! Leisa does the best and I do  mean best job of quilting.  Can't wait to get the binding on this one.  It is a pattern from Silver Thimble Quilt Co.  Check out their wonderful patterns.

It's a pillow

Finished my "Be Thankful" pillow yesterday, along with two others that I had orders for.  I started one for December that has Holly Jolly on it.  The background is off white and the words are in red.  I am going to put some red bells on it.  If interested in a kit for "Be Thankful"  check on  my store Pig In a Blanket Wools.

Oops!

Just realized I forgot to announce the winner of the Primitive Gatherings Pinkeep kit.  The lucky winner is:  Paula at Hugs and Stitches.  Please send me your mailing address and it will go out this week.  I also have my first original design that I am offering at my store.  Check it out over at Pig in a Blanket Wools.

Wool Give Away

One of my very first wool projects was a pincushion. Pincushions are really easy to make, they  are quick to make and are useful.  Visit my new website Pig in a Blanket Wools for some of my hand dyed wools and some of my wool kits.  Leave a message  about your favorite wool project for a chance to  win a  Primitive Gatherings Pincushion pattern and a kit featuring my hand dyed wools along with the necessary thread and even a needle!  If you have never worked with wool, let me know why you would like to.  Can't wait to hear from everyone.  You have until next Monday to leave a comment.  Thanks.

Another Reason it was the best


I am not a huge football fan, but I do enjoy a good game.  Being from Mississippi I usually don't have anything to brag about but this week is different; Ole Miss and Mississippi State are tied for third in the AP college football poll.  I guess it is a matter of state pride, my brother went to Ole Miss and I took a couple of classes at Mississippi State while at Mississippi University for Women.  I have never been to a college football game but if I were to ever go to one, I would want to go to an Ole Miss game and party in the Grove, (or maybe a University of Georgia game).  Hope their winning streaks keep up!!!

OMG, Best Weekend ever


This was one of the best and I do mean best weekends that I have had in a long, long time.  I did my first show at the Stars 'N' Quilts Show here in Atlanta.  I had no idea what to expect and it definitely exceeded my expectations.  When I arrived at the event center on Friday I knew that things would go well when I saw my booth area, directly overhead was  9 point buck.  I felt right at home, since we have a few of these on the walls at our house  It was so exciting to set up  my first show.
Here is my sign for Pig in a Blanket Wools.

Beautiful sampler quilt.

This was one of the prize winners at the show and of course it had lots of wool applique.

Check back for more quilts from the show.

My first time as a Vendor

Pig in a Blanket Little Woolie Bundles
Scrap bags will be a show special, reg. $15.00, special for $10.00
Wish  me luck this weekend with my first show.  I will be at the Stars 'N' Stitches Quilt Show this weekend.  I am both excited and nervous!!!  If you live in the Atlanta area check it out.  I will have lots and lots of my hand dyed wool, some patterns, needles, steam a seam lite, kits, and lots of other goodies.
I put the binding on this last night.  It is a pattern and kit that I will have at the show.

I am a follower of Lisa Bongean and a firm believer in Lite Steam-A-Seam 2.  This product is just now back on the market and I will have it available to sell.


I also will have Pocket Full of Posies patterns and kits.  This makes a great sewing bag, or little bag for goodies.
