All 3 Holidays

I am still having trouble w/this dad-gum NEW blogger interface, is anyone out there w/me??

I also have been a busy little bee.....stitching
my life away w/WOOL!!!  I have fallen in love all over again w/WOOL.  LOVE LOVE LOVE  IT!!!  I can't seem to stop using it!  Esp. the overdyed colors and the textures are just gorgeous!  I even dream about it!  I think I have died and gone to wooly heaven! LOL

  So I made something for each holiday that's coming up, that way I'll be ahead for once!!  A cute little candy corn candle mat.....what?  NO candle!  Can't have that, can we??

So I found this darling glass STAR votive at WW for just a buck!!  and the orange candle for .50 cents!  Can't beat that!

Next I finished up a darling little turkey for Thanksgiving....isn't he SEW cute? :))  I gave him a little heart-shape wire hanger, added some buttons and cut a little 'rag' quilt around the outer edges. 
He is backed w/flannel, oh so soft.  I just wanted to do something a little different this time around w/the outer edges, but I really like how it turned out.  (He is for sale in my Etsy shop, and FREE shipping too)!
You can barely see his tiny little eyes.........(french knots).
I realize I already showed you this when it was pinned on, but I actually finished it!  I made it into a table mat, and machine binded it w/you-guessed it - FLANNEL!  LOVE that stuff almost as much as WOOL!!! LOL(this one is for sale too, hint hint)
And last, but not least, I have been working on something for Christmas!!  I am almost finished w/this and I loved everything about it!  It is pretty good size and I will be making a kit for those interested. I will try to remember to show it once it's entirely finished.
I have listed lots and lots of old/new things in my ETSY shop recently, so go take a peek~I'm offering FREE shipping on several of my kits and a few handmade goodies.  I recently got in quite a bit of new wool that I felted and it's listed in my Etsy shop too~really great prices, I might add.

  Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention that there is a really sweet little article that Creative Times Magazine did on me.  It is an emagazine, so you just basically download it to read it.  They have really nice articles on crafts and things.  I am the featured shop for Sept./Oct.  Just click the upper left hand corner where it says - 'Current Issue'.  Then click on the download button, and it should pop up.

Hey, thanks for your visit and your sweet comments!  I really appreciate them and YOU!!

You've been really busy playing with wools! Love them all and you actually reminded me of I'll have to finish the little Christmas woolen project I got from you as I received the embroidery thread I needed.

Can't wait to see it finished!

Good norming...Ilove all your creations.
Wool does get into ones sole doesn't it.

What fun!! Love your little wool creations, Tanya--I'm allergic to wool so I don't know if I'd be able to create anything out of them... Each one turned out so cute!
