Wool in the summer, strange but true

i have been spending some time working with felted wool…several years ago i bought a kit or should i say kits from 
wild thymes pattern co.  there are 12 blocks in all and borders to make a wool quilt…
pattern for 1 of 12 blocks, they came kitted with pattern and felted wool

yes there is lots of hand work but wool is so warm and soft to work with…the comfort just draws one in

we have had a stunning summer so far…loving to sit on my deck (yes it does need refinishing but twice in 2 years is enough for me)(going to go with composite decking next summer)
and stitch in the shade listening to water gurgle in our pond..
 partly finished, still some work to be done

stitching in the shade next to a gurgling pond sounds divine! Even though it's wool, you are working with small pieces, so its perfect for summer :-) That quilt will be a tactile feast!
Happy sewing ~ Tracy
