This pretty center piece is from Designs by Fee. It is called Florentine. I made this for a house warming gift I will be giving next week to my husdands niece & her husdand. I love making yo yos, and as you can see they are of very muted colours. I attached a longated pearl bead in the center of each yo yo that came off an old sweater. (NEVER THROW OUT THESE DEARIES EH)?. I think they add just a little to the piece. Thank you Fee for this great pattern. The salt & peppar birdies are something that belonged to my dear mother. I just found them as I was going through some of her things. She only kept them in the curio cabinet not to be used. " see mom I am enjoying them so very much" My mother passed away in Sept. so I am happy to have her at our dinner table with us.. Thanks for sharing a little time with me. Come again won't you? Blessings: Dianne

Hello there, Just wanted to share one of my wool projects that I really loved making. I can not remember which magazine it was in but, it is at least 2years old. The whole picture is done in wool and I found it difficult to really know how I wanted to finish it. Thus the framed piece. My (talented) friend Sheila made one as well at the same time. Working on a Red Work table runner AND a baby quilt now. I can not for the life of me handle only one project at a time!!!!ha... Hopefully I can share a pic. of these soon. Thanks for letting me share with you. Remember now, tea only takes a minute to brew, so come back to visit eh? Blessings Dianne.Oh yes, if you click on the pic. you will see the flower detail more clearly.. D.

Well ladies, my niece is here & I am BLOGGING. So here is a picture of a wool wall hanging I completed a year ago. The background is cotton with the wool basket & flowers. I love to work with wool. This hangs on the wall in our kitchen over the kitchen set.
