Wool, wool and more wool

Hi everyone,
My mom, my aunt and my grandmother try to go to Salvation Army every Wednesday. It is half price day. So, last Tuesday night I called my mom and told her she was going on a mission for wool for me. I told her to look for blazers, skirts and coats made from 100% wool. I told her the colors I would like to have too. This is the stack of goodies she found for me. Would you believe I got all of this for $11.00? Since I have not been teaching all week due to the 32 inches of snow that we received and half of the district still doesn't have power, I washed, dried and tore apart everything. Some of this is really nice and thick.

I thought I would show the first wool rug that I made. I got the sheep pattern from Primitive Blessings, Twigs and Sprigs free stitching patterns. I ironed freezer paper onto my wool and traced the patterns on them. I cut them out and blanket stitched them on. I have it resting on the little rocking chair that I just painted (see my previous post). I really like it! I am getting the penny rug bug for sure. I am almost done with another one. I will post it when I finish. Have a great day and stay warm, Kim


  1. I love your little sheep runner Kim and you did a fantastic job on the rocking chair. Looks so cute and prim.

  2. Love that runner! sure did get a lot of Wool!...I just hate the tearing apart!

  3. You did well with the wool find! I looked today in a charity shop and the one and only wool garment I could find cost £8-probably about $12?
    That was my first time looking, so needless to say I was disgusted:(
    Your runner looks lovely-and the chair:)
    Can't wait to see your next penny rug.

    Can't wait to see what else you make.

  5. Looks like your mom found you a great deal! Your runner is super cute! 32 inches of snow is too much, I'm hoping your winter is back to normal soon.
