At the quilting group I belong to I lead a Wool Group.  These are the projects I'm working on for that group.

The first one is "Little Wooly Baskets" - it was a free BOM I participated in on the internet.  I've completed 12 blocks and now need to design and sew a larger middle block to complete the layout I'm envisioning.  So far I've sent out the patterns for first 3 blocks for the ladies to work on - one a month.  I'll post a picture of 3 of the blocks so you can get an idea of this cute little wool project. 

The next pictures are of the other project I'm working on for the Wool Group.  We'll be doing the project together next year so I'm working on the samples now.  These are the 3 block I've finished so far.  It is a Block of the Week posted on Facebook by Farmhouse Friends called "Crazy for Fall".  I think it still may be available for free if anyone is interested.

I needed some block carriers to carry all of these blocks in so I made 2 for me and one for a friend.  The open one is the same fabric as the top one (it's the one I gave to my friend).

Thanks Shelley.  I don't have as much time to work at quilting these days so I had to think about what I really wanted to spend that precious time on.  I decided on "slow stitching" (heaven knows I have way more quilts than I'll ever be able to get all quilted and bound), so handwork and things that take more time to complete was my answer.  I decided I wanted to do applique, do hand embroidery, work with wool, do EPP, and do longarm quilting (I don't do too much piecing these days).  So every Wednesday (because I don't have Kingsley that day) I devote to one of these things.  I volunteered to lead a wool group, a handwork group, and a longarm group for the quilting club I'm in.  That way I can not only focus my attention but also get encouragement from others who have those same interests.

I took the most wonderful session of longarm classes during the COVID shutdown by Susan Smith.  She not only taught that but also has many free YouTube videos.  Every other Monday morning she quilts and does a live unscripted video while she's quilting.  I think you'd really enjoy checking some of of her videos out. 

I really like the EPP project you have in process.  It's already stunning.

Thanks Suze.  I'm really enjoying "slow stitching" - very relaxing.

I decided to clean up my garage fabric cutting area etc. I need to make it easier to find stuff.  I put the two tables together lengthwise, and that gave me more free space. l can now sew out here if I want, as last year I had that electrical outlet put on the wall, and a nice big light overhead.
