Wool Runner all stitched

 So relieved to finish this wool project from the first Primitive Quilts magazine.  It's by Maggie Bonanomi whose patterns I've long admired. But I have to confess I found it hard keeping the momentum going.
I'm impatient like that - when I start I'm so enthusiastic but then if the end is not in sight I can get frustrated with myself and perhaps this one was a trickier piece of work than I bargained for.
 This is where I'm displaying it - it just about fits in under this shelf so I can enjoy a little more summer in here!

 Sunny sunflowers say, 'Celebrate!'   All too soon the children will be back at school so I like hanging on to this time of year.

Have a great week, friends and enjoy your family times together!

Best wishes

  7. Perfect place to display the wool piece. I am the same as you at times. Impatient to finish a project when it turns out to be more work stitching than you ever imagined.

  8. It's wonderful Christine.

    I've been thinking about taking on a harder project like this but haven't had the nerve yet

    You did great.

  9. Very nice and it fits perfectly! Is it hanging on a rod? I bought a large quilt hanger with a rod and am planning on hanging something wool, either a hooked piece or appliqued piece, to it some day. :)

  10. Looks great Christine! I stitched up the same design, but used a red/tan ticking stripe for the background - funny how they look so different depending on fabric choices!

  20. Oh, I am SO happy you are back!!!! I've been wondering what you've been up to across the ocean, but I never imagined you had spent part of that time over HERE! :-D WOW!!!

    I'm glad you had a wonderful time, and got to do some fun shopping and get some neat "prim" treats, and spend time with Heather (who is one of the sweetest online people I've met!). I loved the pictures you posted! :-)

    Your wool runner is lovely! I am looking forward to some cooler weather soon, then I'll get motivated to work with wool again!

    Oh and Happy Anniversary!!! :-D 20 years....GREAT job!

    Big Hugs!

  21. I love it! It is gorgeous! I love the colors and folk art design. But I understand what you mean about getting distracted by a project when there seems to not be an end in sight. That is why I don't do very detailed stitcheries. I would have half-finished ones all over the place! I am like that right now with my redoing the hutch. I can't see an end so I decided to procrastinate and read blogs... Heee heee! But it is such a beautiful piece, friend! Well done!

    Love and hugs!
    Heather
