Wool Gathering: to engage in fanciful daydreaming. Sounds like fun to me!
This book is full of projects and ornaments, some have been previously published as "Doubles" along with their companion counted thread project. Quilt Shop owners asked me to compile all my little wool designs into one book, and I think that was a great idea. They didn't all fit in the first book, All Wool & a Yard Wide, plus I wanted to add some new pieces, so this book is the second in the series.
All the projects are created with Weeks Dye Works over-dyed wool, Pearl Cotton #5 and six-strand floss. Because of this, all supply lists specify the colors, pattern or solid, and fibers for details. That makes it easy to find exactly the same supplies I used and to color match fibers. Of course, other brands of wool are fabulous too, and you should certainly use what you have on hand. Two of the projects are displayed on Stix, available as a set, with one each 8", 10" and 12". One is displayed on an 8" Charcoal Snowflake Hanger.
This 32 page book contains supply lists, patterns, tips and stitch illustrations to help with the details. Buttons to embellish some of the designs are from Hillcreek Designs and are listed with each project.
