Wool Applique

It's Funny Friday
without my Prudence
(Block #1)
I have a new passion, the art of wool applique.  Doreen Frost
over at Vermont Harvest Folk Art has an applique group, Wooly Stitchers, and I am actually learning this wonderful art form.  The group is beyond wonderful, everyone is so helpful and encouraging.  I am left-handed so watching a how-to video can be challenging, or even reading instructions.  I mentioned that to Doreen and the next thing I knew she had posted if anyone was a lefty could they help me.  Here is what I have done to date, we are working on an autumn table runner:

We are working from the wonderful applique book by Rebekah L. Smith.  It is written for both the beginner and experienced, with all patterns included and step by step guides to all required stitches for these projects, plus a summary of wools that may be used for the projects.This book is well worth having in your crafting library.

This is my second completed block, working on #3 currently and then onto the background and completion.

Wishing you a beautiful day and weekend.
