Wool Crazy!

Ok, some of you out there are very bad influences and have introduced me to the wonderful world of wool.  It didn't take me long (once I gave it a try!) to fall head over heels in love! The problem is...I don't need a bigger stash (although wool is a nice addition and gives me variety - says the devil on my shoulder) and I don't have time to do anything else!  But, what's a girl to do?  I love it!  I showed a picture a few weeks ago of some wool that I purchased.  A fellow blogger saw that post, and e-mailed me to see if I would be interested in swapping a pendant for some wool.  Well, sure thing - sounded like a grand idea!  I got the particulars of what she wanted in a pendant, and told her that I am clueless about wool (she could really pull the wool over my eyes - hahahahaha) to do whatever she thought I needed - knowing she is wool-savvy!  Oh. My. Gosh.  Look what came in the mail today...
YUMMY!  It is all really wonderful!  This came from Gayle of The Middle Sister blog.  I'm sure many of you know and love her. You can see that I "borrowed" her pictures (with her approval, of course) - they are better than anything I could take.  So...Marty my mail lady...I bet you wanted to open this one up and fondle it, huh?  It's a good one!

Gayle asked for a 2" scrappy pineapple pendant with no white, so here is what she got...
I think we are both happy with the swap, and I'm so glad that she asked! Now I have to figure out what my next wool project will be since I have such a great stash.  Or...maybe I should finish the one I have started!! 

Have a great weekend...if you need me I will be petting my new wool...

  3. You're hooked for sure now, Julie! We just got back from a short trip and I was SO tempted by lots of wool! Oh - and the strawberried from your other post have me drooling in anticipation for ours to ripen!
    Cheers!
