It's called "Old Glory" and is a design by Jan Goos. This one is pretty big... finishes up at 7-1/2" x 9-1/2". I just grabbed DMC flosses from my stash that kinda matched the sample pictured on the pattern. I used a double strand of DMC floss to whip stitch a thick wool yarn around the edge... then backed this piece with a piece of wool.
A big thank you to everyone that entered the giveaway from the last post! I may have to give away a few more patterns before the end of this year... because giveaways are kinda FUN! lol! Anyways, the winner of the Stacy Nash pattern and Mercantile Gatherings magazine is...
The Hoopless Stitcher
Congrats to Monica! I've sent you an email. Please let me know what your mailing address is and we'll see what else I can fit in that envelope... ;-)
So. What am I doing on this very first FULL day of Autumn? Well... washing all my woolies! Yes, that's right. I finally remembered to order up some Kookaburra Wool Wash and decided to lightly rinse and fluff all the wool I have in my stash. The Kookaburra Wool Wash has lanolin and other oils in it that condition the wool to be nice and soft and also helps as a moth deterrent. It also contains Tea Tree Oil as a natural disinfectant... I'm getting ready to get hookin' again!
First things first though... back to finishing up my quilt BOM's...
