Pat Wys. When Pat started writing this book, she knew that she wanted to include several wool projects and wanted me to supply the wool!!! I couldn't believe it. What an opportunity, I was soooooo excited. I was even more excited a few weeks ago to see a copy of the book. Every project in the book is absolutely over the top. If you are going to purchase a new Christmas book this year, this is definitely the one to buy. I received a copy of the book from Pat's publisher, Martingale, to use in a giveaway. So here goes. To win a copy of Handmade Christmas Cheer and a bundle of 4 fat quarters, one each in red, green, blue and white. Perfect for any Christmas project. For an opportunity to win, go over to Pig in a Blanket Wools and leave a comment about your favorite type of handwork, wool applique, applique, stitchery or something else. The winner will be announced on Sunday. Good luck.

Just finished my new bag, the pattern is Victoria by Sue Spargo. I bought the pattern several years ago with intentions to make it and just never did. When I started dyeing wool I knew that I would one day get around to making it. The wool section is all my hand dyed wools, the green corduroy is from a pair of my dad's pants, along with the brown corduroy. The buttons are from my mom's button box, I have no idea how old some of them are. The green and bronze upholstery came from old pillows from the house where I grew up. This is going to be my new knitting bag. Can't wait to show my mom.
