Woolie Wednesday & Our 18th Wedding Anniversary!

Hello sweet friends, I'm just popping in for a quick post as this is our 18th wedding anniversary and as hubby is off work today, we are going out and hope to enjoy a lovely meal together and reminisce about our wedding day and where the last 18 yrs have gone!

I treated myself to the luxury of some sewing time to finish this woolie project - something I have always wanted - a wool pineapple!

I didn't tea stain it and I'd love to hear from you - what do you think? To stain or not to stain?

Thanks so much for your visit!
Hope you all have a great day!


  1. Happy Anniversary Christine!! so glad we share the same special day. Enjoy your celebrations...and I'm loving the pineapple!
    Hugs, Charlotte xx

  19. Happy anniversary! I not sure I would tea tye it.

  20. Happy Anniversary! Very cute pineapple! I have never coffee/ tea stained wool before, but if you did do it, I guess the water should be sprayed on, not immersed? and very cold to avoid shrinkage ? If you do stain it, let me know, how you did it, and how it came out!

  21. Hi Christine :-)
    Lovely make, as always. I like it just as it is.
    Have a fantastic wedding Anniversay, and many, many more :-) x x x

  22. Happy Anniversary! I hope you had a wonderful time on your date with your hubby. I like your pineapple just the way it is :) Thank you for the birthday wishes for my boys too.

  23. Hi, Christine, Happy Belated Anniversary. I just saw that you follow my blog, Glen Oaks Primitives in Western Massachusetts, USA and I'm thrilled that I reached a follower across the pond! Thank you so much. Your
    pineapple is very uniquely done and it is quite lovely, I'm partial to tea/coffee staining myself so I would spray it, but it's a personal preference really.
    Looking forward to following your blog.
    Warmest Regards,
    Susan B., Western MA
