Rising from the UFO wool project stashes!

After my dream crashing episode, I decide to tackle a wool penny rug project I started back in 2012. It was the year I started working with wool and didn't know any better. For one thing, the designer did not mention that the pattern pieces were not reversed! I also used Steam-a-Seam 2 lite, which I absolutely detest! I find it hard to needle, it doesn't even adhere to the wool background AND it gums up my needle!!!

So there I went tracing the pieces ... what a BIG mistake, not to mention a waste of hand dyed wool ... so I tossed it aside (out of sight our of mind) and worked on another one of her patterns called  Two Prim Snowman, which became the last time I used Steam-a-Seam 2 lite. Not sure what is "lite" about it but my fingers are forever more thankful that I no longer use the product.

The pattern is called "Silent Night-Holy Night" by Jan Speed from A Piece of Work. I do love how it turned out!


Silent Night!


Holy Night!


Not all was calm!!! The useless pieces!


And yes I had to buy new wool! Yes, I learned quite a bit! I am glad it is done! I truly love it! A wonderful new addition to my folk art decor collection!

Thanks for stopping by! Catch you all later!
