First Steps...

Brynwood Needleworks - Primitive Gatherings Wool Box Kit

I'm still working on the Penny Gathering blocks that I've recently shared, but it's nice to have options. I'm so excited about this kit (which came in Wool Box #13), that it made sense to set this project up so I could go between Penny Gatherings and Cottage Garden (both designs by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings).  FYI - This kit won't be available from PG for a while, as it's exclusive to the Wool Box subscribers for now.
 
Brynwood Needleworks - Preparing My Cottage Garden Project
 
The first step in setting up a wool applique' project is tracing the pieces onto my Heat n Bond Feather Lite fusible; matching up that traced pieces with the wool (as specified in the pattern), and then fusing the pieces to the wool. The next step in this process is to cut out all the individual pieces.
 
Brynwood Needleworks - Ready To Fuse and Cut
 
Once all the pieces are cut out, I'll prepare the ground fabric for laying out the design with the wools. I'll be sharing those steps, but the first three steps were completed yesterday, and I began cutting out the pieces. I still have small flowers to cut out...and all those little circles! I'm going to see if one of my paper punches would work for that step.

Today begins with another therapy appointment at the doctor's office, and I have a hair appointment this afternoon. I won't get much done today, but will update tomorrow.

    1. Hi Catherine:
      This part is a little tedious, but not hard at all. Fusing and stitching is my favorite part. Thanks for the note.
