“Sewing Day” show and tell….

A couple of weeks ago, before Market I got to enjoy a sewing day at Joanne Blanks house…here is the fabulous “Show & Tell”…it is mostly all wool…but some wonderful things…this might inspire all 500 of you Wool Crazy Ladies to keep on stitching!  It is a rainy night here…but I am sewing on the FREEBIE  block for summer…Carole was over today so I was able to get some stuff done between phone calls…sorry Carole…LB

I live on a lake in beautiful Butte Des Morts, WI. I have three sons: Lance (forever 29), Luke 33, Jake 32, and two grand-babies, Little Man and O-Bug. I've been married to the love of my life Nick, since 1998 when we started our crazy adventure together! I am a quilter, rugger, and gardener. I also love to cook when I get the chance. Thanks for visiting and supporting Primitive Gathering Quilt Shop where I try to bring you the best Moda fabrics and wool projects anywhere!

    I really like the round mats, nice idea.
    I have lots of scrap wool, so fun to make up small items as gifts.

  6. what a fabulous site. I have viewed your blog for the first time and boy I have fallen in love with Joannes Applique Affair and Karens long wool crazy runner. I am just starting out in wool felt/wool applique and am looking forward to more pictures.
