Wool Lovers Blog Hop

Pieced Brain

A big thanks to Denise for hosting and organizing this blog hop!

Almost all my projects use wool or WoolFelt, so I could post a lot of pictures of things I've made. But instead, I'll just refer you to my Etsy shop, and you can see a lot of my work there.

For my first project for this hop, I decided to do something that would use up some of the wool scraps I have in my stash. I designed a very simple candle mat, which measures 12" square, and is all hand-stitched:

For my second project, I stitched up this pincushion which also uses scraps from my stash.
It's an amalgamation of various traditional floral block patterns I've seen. I just put the elements that I liked together, and I'm pretty happy with how it came out. It measures 6" square and is hand stitched with some Valdani floss I had on hand. It's going to be a gift for someone on my holiday list!

I will make the tutorial/patterns for both of these projects available for free on my blog after the hop is over.

Pin It Blog Hop!

Here we are in another great blog hop. Thanks to Madame Samm and Kristen for all their organizing and cheerleading!

For this blog hop I've designed a trio of floral pincushions. They're all formed by gathering WoolFelt over wide-mouth Mason Jar lid rims. The rims make it very easy to stuff! The flowers are made from WoolFelt as well, and they're all stitched with DMC floss. I will be making a free pattern available on my blog after the hop has ended. The pattern will be for all three styles of flowers. I hope you like them!
