Back to Some Handsewing April 30, 2016 ~ Milkweed & Poppyseed ~ Leave a comment I had an urge to work on some new standing wool, quillie pieces. So I sliced up a washed wool skirt the other day and filled a basket with these tan quillies with wonderful specks of different colors. This trivet is the largest of the group, using two burgundy wool sweaters for color. (If you are trying this, cut wovens on the bias.) Two merino sweaters in this one, a chunky rib and a smooth, dark blue. Little bits of yellow and green cashmere This one went asymmetrical on me. Happens sometimes. Ta-da! That’s it for now. I have two more prepped to go, but the hands need a break.
