Fabric Or Wool

Good morning sweet blogging buddies!
I went back to the office yesterday
and we had a heat wave of 17 degrees for our high.
However when I first got in my car the temp read 1 below
and when I arrived to work it was at zero.
I was so bundled up that my co-workers
called me the little Russian Lady.
I don't care as I was warm.

My question to everyone this mornng.
Do you prefer fabric or wool?
Or maybe a little bit of both?

For my next project,
I have decided to use both.

Fabrics I chose. 
Muted browns, yellow and a bit of red.

Wool choices.
Gold, brown, green and blue.

In addition
This pile of muslin scraps.

Fabric pieces sewn together and aged.

What are you creating now Janice?

I am looking for an online source for another wool project I have planned.
Please let me know were you all find your wool.
Trace from Granny Trace Scraps and Squares Blog finds her wool 
on Ebay and looks for the Frugal  Hooker.

Stay tuned....

Fabric and Woolie Blessings To All!
A lit bit of Granny Trace came out there.
She soooo loves WOOL!!!
Keep warm my friends.

    Your choices are yummy and I can't wait to see what you are up to! I was just thinking about Trace's wool this morning...I don't work with it because I don't have a lot of extra crafting $ but it is drawing me in...was dreaming up a little wall quilt this morning with some bits of wool...a new treasure hunt! Stay warm comrade! ~*~Lisa

  5. I like both.
    Hope it warms us soon. Freezing here too.........brrrrrrrrrrrr ;(
