Each piece measures approximately 6 1/2" X 14”.

Also this month Olympic Wool Work is offering 2 Rustic Moire threads as part of special. The selections are coordinating colors for both bundles. These threads will give your work added textural depth!

Folk Flowers Applique Pattern Completed

Well, I was able to finish up my latest wool applique pattern. I did indeed quilt the entire background with Moire wool thread! I used basic embroidery stitches throughout; nothing too complicated. I will use a piece of driftwood to hang this one.                                                          The next step is the publication, which is our list of things to do this week. So look for this new release shortly along with The Garden Dove.

FOLK FLOWERS; A Wool Appliqué Pattern

I'm working on a remake of an older pattern of mine. There are a few changes: the background is done with our hand dyed wool and I added cone flowers to replace the daisies. My plan is to stitch it all with Moire Rustic Wool thread. So far I'm enjoying working with this thread. I have not had any trouble with breakage which I feared would happen since it's 100% wool. I may even hand quilt the background.
