Threadhead Quilt Along

I am on a roll!!  need to keep going on this...


Block #15
The pincushion in view is one I made some years ago.  We had a 25 acre property in the hills above Perth.  I had a flock of coloured sheep,  brown, grey, black and some spotted...Corrieadales...all coated so I could have nice clean wool.  I felted some onto gauze, and did wool embroidery onto it...
In those days I spun and dyed my own wool, and wove it too...
Dont do that any more :) a good friend of mine - Liz, introduced me to quilting
and the rest is history!!


Block #16

Now to see what Block #17 is like ... easier I hope :)

Your pincushion is a nice memory of that time and more great blocks, it's good when you're on a roll.

WOW you are on a roll!! All of the blocks are lovely :0) Goodness that must have been a lot of work spinning your own wool!

Crispy - who is being lazy this morning and combining her comments into one posting :0)

Good looking blocks! It must have been so nice (and I'm sure, hard work) to have 25 acres and sheep! But, what a memory!
