Time to Warm Up

It's coming! We finally broke down and turned the heat on over the weekend. Actually, we'd been using a little space heater in the bedroom at night until we turned in, and our gas fireplace downstairs while holding off using the main heating system until it got it's annual cleaning last Saturday. Even though daytime temps have been in the 50s, we know it's here - wool blanket weather.

This is a penny rug (or wool applique, if you prefer) pattern from Lake View Primitives called Snow Berries. This plump ewe would be warm enough with her thick coat, but she's sporting a spiffy wool blanket adorned with seasonal holly leaves just because. Raid your stash of hand-dyed wool and whip up this quick-stitch wallhanging or table covering that you can leave out all winter long.

Watching the first snow of the season melting away, but it's only a matter of time until it's around until April or May. Ugh!! Not really ready for it!

Have a great day,

My husband wore me down with the heat about a week ago. I'd hold off until November if it were up to me! LOL At least it's warm and cozy!

I like the wool sheep. Prim style sheep are the best!
