I had a very small goal of sewing down ONE hexagon per day on my candle mat knowing that this would get it finished during OCT.   It was less than a lofty goal but I've just been nervous to finish it because it's not a pattern but something that is similar to what I've seen online.   Thanks could go wrong so I stopped.   Seemed to me if I went super slow, I could spot or prevent any problems as I went along.   WELL, yesterday went so well that I got 4 hexes down and another one started.   Fingers are cross that things continue to so as planned.   It doesn't have to be perfect but I don't want it looking hideous either. 

Looking forward to seeing indivual projects being shared here  ( meaning if it's not already a quilt along )

:)

edited to add that I got about 1.5 hours of wool work done while we watched TV tonight.   :)  That's 1.5 hours closer to FINISHED.  hahahha   I had 3 hexes with beehives on them but decided they might look better with buttonhold stitches around them.  So those are done and can be added to the mat.  :D

I've worked on my wool candle mat every day this week and even a bit of work in the evenings.  I can't seem to put it down.   House work and yard work are getting done but I'd rather have fuzzy fingers.  

Chances are good that I will finish it in IA.   Doubt I will leave it here unfinished and there's not enough time to finish it because we get a day with Jace.   He comes tonight and will be gone by tomorrow around 5.  

Anyone working with wool this week ???

Yep, in the evenings I'm working on my 24 flower blocks.  Will post a photo when I've finished the first 6.  Just a couple more hours...maybe tonight.

TA I love love your door hanger. I think we all need one of those.

Candis is the pumpkin your own creation? It is beautiful, can’t wait to see your next in a different color.

GG I can’t wait to see your candle mat. Trying to picture it in my head, with the little bits you have told us about it. Sewing down hexies has me intrigued.

Mini looking forward to seeing your 24 flower blocks. Is this a mini?

I am going to get my fingers into a little bit of wool today. Making my muggie buddy a tiny treat. Hopefully she is a bit of a hand sewer so she can use it.

I was looking back and could believe we had not posted in our wooly booger thread for almost a year. Glad you brought it back up GG.

Here are my first 6 blocks for this 24 block wallhanging.  The blocks are all supposed to be 6 inches finished but I think I'm making them 7.  I like the size better.  They are from Horse and Buggy Country.  I got them as a block a month for 12 of them and then visited the designer's Etsy store for the rest.  There are 4 flowers for each season.  On to the next 6. 

My heart is fed with needle and thread.

Mimi Jeanne, Fabulous!  I just pulled my wool out today thinking I would do something with it, and now feel I must.  Your blocks are so beautiful.  I am so glad you posted these.

GG, yes, I think it's wool time.  But, I have to stay focused and commited.  I was surprised by how much wool I have when I pulled it out.  Got some other things to work on too but think I'll leave the wool out for a while to motivate me.  SUCH pretty colors I have.

Thanks LB!   I'm very tickled with it.   I feel as if I need to get back to concentrating on my cotton UFOs but that doesn't mean I can be LOOKING for my next wooly start.    

I can work on wool at night with the family so it doesn't take away much from cotton.

Laura, your pumpkin is beyond beautiful and "I want it"  I know, I know, but this is so, sew, lovely.
