~ Wool'n Fun ~

Hello Friends & Folk ~
and a Happy Sunday to you all!

just sharing with you all
a little project I'm working on today...
well one of them, anyway

I hooked this small mat yesterday, 
while friends visited our little Needlework Shop
 for our regular Crafty Saturday ~

but I didn't want to finish it into just a plain mat.
so I decided to mount it onto a fabric-covered piece of heavy cardboard....

then I thought it needed something more above the mat...
yes! a wool sunflower!

... then I thought it would be a swell Needlework Pocket!
{I need to stop thinking so much. ha!}

 I like to cut my wool with my pinking shears, 
that way is makes it easier for me to space my blanket stitching... 
although nothing I ever do is perfect, 
but ~ it pleases me nonetheless.

I'm using coordinating Valdani pearl cottons in size #8  
and I think I'll add more leaves on either side of the sunflower...
{see what I mean about the thinking-thing?}

all it needs now if for me to finish the wool applique ~ 
add a hanger and voila!

 Hoping you are all enjoying a peaceful Sunday 
~ with those who love you most...

Blessings from the Farm
