I've been playing with wool and wool felt the past few weeks. I already posted a picture of my Pumpkin Valley Pillow which used felted wool and some cotton fabric as the backround. The next two projects I've finished were done using a wool and polyester blend. I decided to use the blend because it's cheaper and I wanted to practice before I start my Snowman mat.
The first project is a candle mat: (the backround is gray as shown in the middle pic, not sure why it appears blue in the other pictures).
|You can see I still need some practice on my stitches.|

I feeling brave so I'm going to start my snowman mat, it's made out of wool. Hope I can get it done by Christmas.
The blank spaces will have hats as well. I will stitch down the hats and then add the snowman's faces. I'll post more pictures as I go along.
