You can see what I been doing lately. I have been making some pincushions and quilting. This summer when our homemaker group visited Neff's Country Loft I saw some Pincushions made from wool. Of course, it has been in the back of my mind to make some and I finally got around to starting them on Sunday. I have worked on them for a few days now and really enjoy working with wool. These are made from wool jackets bought from Goodwill stores. It is time consuming but I enjoy doing it. First, cut the jackets in pieces. I take them apart at the seams and wash them in very hot water and dry at very hot temperature. Next step is the applique and embroidery stitching. Which one is your favortie? Red or Cream?

And today I quilted a quilt for Barbara. I just love quilting these quilts and seeing ways each person puts them together. I've been told this lady always designs her own, so I don't know the name of this one.

Too hard to pick - but the red is just a tidge more to my liking. It appears they are mounted on taper candle holders - am I correct?

Score is 100 on the quilt - 50 points to the maker and 50 points to you the quilter...both compliments each other.
