Some new wool things

I just love most anything wool, so I am always on the lookout for new patterns.  At market there were quite a few new ones from our favorite designers, plus we were able to find two new designers that we really liked.  So be watching for some new samples.  We are driving to New York for Thanksgiving, about 11 hours each way.  I am hoping to get a bunch of wool prepped so I can work on it in the car.  We’ll see how that goes…

Here is a new snowman man from Lily Anna Stitches, great for all those snowmen lovers!

This is a mat from Primitive Gatherings, Squared Up Tablemat (I think).  This would be a great beginner project if you haven’t used wool before.  Also a good pattern if you have a lot of small wool scraps.

These items and many other samples should arrive in the store tomorrow, so come and check them out.

Here are some more random pictures from market…

Sue, I don’t remember who’s booth this is, do you?  Really cool bed, notice the black crows on the foot board?  Looked really great, but I’m not sleeping in it!

Monkey and owl hanging out in a tree…

This bicycle and booth were photographed a lot, fun stuff.

Well, the first annual neighborhood chili cook off starts today at 4pm.  Time to go put the finishing touches on dinner.

Later, Sandra
