Finished Projects!

It’s been a busy few weeks, but I did manage to get two projects completed.  The first one is a wool hootie owl from “Falloween Threads” by Need’l Love.  This guy stitched up pretty quickly, but he did take a bit of brown wool for the body, wings, and ears:

He was so cute, I am making another one out of a dark brown plaid.  I’ll post a picture when he is finished! I am trying to think of some fun way to embellish him for fall or Halloween – any ideas are welcome!

The other thing I finished was a hand-pieced wall hanging that I started at the beginning of the summer:

I took a hand-piecing  class from Corrine Kerns at Plain and Simple Quilt Shop and fell in love with this method.  This is definitely something that is very portable, and good to do if you don’t have access to a sewing machine.  I used Civil War reproduction fabrics for mine and I was very pleased with the results.  I plan to hand-quilt it this winter.  This project also inspired me to embark on a larger hand-piecing project – details to come later.

That’s all for now.  I am trying to finish some other UFO’s before the end of the summer, only two more weeks to go!

  2. Is there a pattern available for the owl? Thanks.
