Wool Crazy Across the Web

Its amazing to me how many places on the web are talking about Wool Crazy. Thought you might like to see some of them. Here we go:

Pumpkin Patch Primitives has really taken a liking to my book.

Everyone in Blogland is buzzing about JoAnn Mullaly book, 'Wool Crazy' they should!! The more I look at this book, the more I love it!! Even if you NEVER make the Crazy Quilt you WILL love it for the gorgeous applique patterns!

NewsoDrome picked up a blogspot from our friend Kaaren at The Painted Quilt

About a week ago when I was blog hopping, I happened to see a photo of this new book on the market…

and I fell in ♥!

A crazy quilt done entirely in wool! Be still my ♥!

The Wool Crazy Ladies Club

We have a fun new project for you based on the book, Wool Crazy by JoAnn Mullaly. We will be working on a small wool crazy quilt with lots of folksy wool appliqu├ęs and embroidery stitches. We are initially planning on running this club for 4 months.

Lea at Simple Pleasures actually stopped by my booksigning. It was great to meet her and I'm glad she's enjoying her book.

Penny Rugs and More, and Treadleworks by Tammy more of the Wool Crazy Sew Along gang.

The Happy Wren Sewing Blog had nice things to say:
There are times when I see someone’s work and truly believe that they are artists. Here’s a couple of examples and included are the links/information to find these resources should they interest you! As always, happy sewing!

Bits of Wool
The thing I like about this 'challenge' is that you don't have to attempt the whole quilt, you can just make small projects from the templates in any material that you want. Just my cup of tea. I always have a great start, then lose steam as I move along, so this should be great for me. Living in chilly, snowy Canada means that I have a ton of wool in my stash, and can pick and choose what colors I want. I am so pumped to have found this group of very friendly ladies, and look forward to the adventure with them. I have already picked up a few great tips from the comments section on the blog.

Even our Olympic Neighbors have gotten involved! Sweet P Quilting and Creations
