I was trying to remember my favorite wool provider and I rememberd a wonderful PIN provider who does great work. Here is her site...please come back here when you are done.

When a COW gets cold, what do you think they do? They crawl up on a warm car, that's what!
This week I taught at Quilter's Annon. in Seattle (Edmonds). I gave two lectures with lots of quilts and we had a wreath workshop and everyone had a lot of fun.
I sold some quilts at the meetings and that was fun.
It is always fun to go justacross the mountains to see the beauty that only Seattle can provide. My old Friend Barb Lambrecht made a salmon dinner for me and some other friends and she gave us a wonderful trunk show too. Made it across the Pass before the snow hit hard last night.
We did both cotton wreaths and wool wreaths.
Good news, we filled the Cow Class at Aunt Mary's for next February.
Thisis the beginning of my wool wreath and it is almost done now and has many beads, fancy stitches, rick rack and other fun things on it. It is going to be great to hang it for Christmas. I ADORE WOOL!
I am taking a blank one to Germany in two weeks to work on a non-Christmas wreath while I am on the trip. Should be great fun!
It is fun to see what students can do on their own and I love this fruit wool wreath. Great fun.
I like THIS for one of my GO TO wool resources. Weeks does beautiful colors and I have used their wool for many years.
The3 beginning of a fun cotton wreath with my pattern pieces and some of her own whimsical touches.
Lots of variety in the whimsy....
Could not get photos of everyone's work.
The photo above is of my Hen Party pattern which is in the "Whimsies and Whynots" book I did years ago. This quilt is Barb Lambrect's and hangs in her hallway. It is adorable and reall quite funky in a great way!


  1. Oooohhhh.... beautiful leaves and a beautiful baby in the leaves! What a great way to start a Sunday?!?!

    Thank you for sharing all the pretty wreath quilts-in-progress ladies!

  2. Great colours of the leaves in the first photo.

    Looks like the class had fun with their wreaths.

    The zipper and wool pins look great.

  3. Thank you for another day of happiness! Hug to you!

  4. Beautiful leaves. My son and his wonderful wife live in Edmonds. I am headed there for a visit the week after Thanksgiving.
