Wooly weather

The "historic" storm I wrote about last post didn't happen. Oh, we had wind and pummeling rain, but we didn't set any records and we didn't lose power.

But it was still stormy enough to pull out the latest wool project and snuggle with it in my fleece and favorite chair.

Here's how it looked yesterday outside the window. The sun broke through the clouds and turned the water silver. All day it rained then had a brief sun break, then rained, then another sun break. It felt  like spring in Pennsylvania, where I grew up.

The project I'm working on is a wool appliqué fall table runner. First I did a tiny whip stitch to hold the pieces down. Now I'm using heavier thread to do a decorative chain stitch around each piece. Should be finished for Thanksgiving.

Have a colorful day

Great looking table runner!!! Glad you didn't get bad where did you grow up in PA? We lived in Finleyville, graduated from Monongahela High, went to 3 Rivers College (used to be called Point Park College)!
