Link Party No. 39 and Wool Projects


I don't know if because it is so cold outside or what, but I have been wanting to work with wool for a while... I went through my wool collection, pulled some scraps together, and did some random cutting...



Made a brooch for Rachel,



Made a brooch for me :)



and, made a hair clip for Rachel for Valentine's day



Wool is such a fun material to work with. Sometimes I buy wool clothing at thrift stores, and treat it to make wool felt. Right now, I am having so much fun going through my wool scraps to form some ideas. What can I make next?

Ok, everyone, it is your turn to show off what you have been working on!
Here are the rules for the link party:

1. Please post something YOU made. It doesn't matter if it is crochet, quilt, clothing, anything would be fine. I want to see it! If you use someone's idea or patterns please give them the rightful credit.

2. Link to your specific post, that way it is easier for everybody to find and read it.

3. Please grab the "Tea Rose Home" grab button, and link back from your post. If you can mention the party in your post or place the button on your side bar, that would be great! I want more people to have a chance to come and show off their creation.




Thank you for your participation, and making this link party sucssesful and fun!
