One of my true pleasures with my needle and thread, is the art of wool applique or penny rugs. Wool is one of the most beautiful and natural fibers to work with. The colors, the textures, the buttery soft feel against your fingers when stitching a design. I adore the fact that wool, when felted, lends itself to perfecting the most of imperfections. A circle that isn't exact, corners that are not concisely squared off, or a flower whose curves are not symetrical. The most simple and child like designs can be made into the most wonderful creations!
