Embroidery, Wool & Applique — The Perfect Combo

Embroidery, wool and applique — Elizabeth Angus’ new pattern book's got all three going for it plus some wonderfully wooly creations! I love the line in the book description—“whimsical woolgathering at its very best!” I so totally agree! See for yourself…
Cozy Wool Applique Pillows
What's more refreshing than a sunny day on the farm? Creating country landscapes with wool applique and embroidery, of course! Seven farmland scenes invite your admiration on six pillows and a box lid. Just for fun, designer Elizabeth Angus also included an eighth design—a pillow featuring pretty heart appliques. Each project is embroidered with pearl cotton and sometimes a little silk ribbon. Some of the designs invite you to add a few buttons for cute-and-cozy details. All of these wooly creations are so heartwarming to see, you'll want to scatter them around the house. Why not place one of the smaller pillows in your sewing room to use as an oversize pincushion? This is whimsical woolgathering at its very best!
