Wooly Block Adventure… Are You In????

Wooly Block Adventure

Wooly Block AdventureHave you heard of the Wooly Block Adventure

Created by the same people who also coordinate the Row By Row Experience, it’s a fun smaller event that is in its infancy. I believe it’s in it’s second year, where earlier this year it had less than 50 shops participate. They apparently changed the dates and now there are just under 200 shops participating. I love the theme for this one, it is Winter Wonderland, and as you know I’m moving to a winter wonderland in Colorado later this month. I’m very excited because this is just the opportunity I need to create something new for our new home.

Recently I have been involved in hoping to accumulate some blocks from the Wooly Winter Block Adventure as I want to make a lappy or two for my new home in the Wonderful Winterland of Colorado. So this adventure is just the thing to wet my willy and get me sewing. I love wool, I love winter, and I’d love all or any of you to come along and participate with me. Let’s have some fun swapping blocks. I’ll pick up some blocks from some of my new local shops, and you pick up some of yours and we’ll trade…

I’ve made no bones about the fact that Winter is my favorite season of the year, and now that I’m moving to the Winter Wonderland in Colorado, I am so looking forward to digging out all my sweaters and enjoying the wearing of my sweaters once again. It’s like I will have a whole new closet of clothing coming to me even tho they are pretty old. Here in Sicily, while it does get cold in the winter, it’s never quite cold enough to wear sweaters or heavy coats. Ever since we moved from Germany, my sweaters have literally been on vacation, getting very little use at all. They will be singing with joy as they know that I love each and every one of them. Most were all hand picked by my eyes for a permanent home with me. My other favorites for winter are flannel and wool… I love both fabrics and I love to sew with them.

So, I’ve decided I want to see your winter projects too. 

Your welcome to incorporate any part of winter Continue reading
