Wool Is Back at Aunt Mary's

Look what's back!  WOOL!  Several years ago, wool was all the rage.  Many of us were making penny rugs and other cute projects. Then it kind of slowed down, it go harder for me to find a good supplier, and we let it go as well.  Then....... as with so many great came back into trend.  New designers like Sue Spargo and Kim Diehl have books out that mix wool and cotton on quilts. I have to say, it's very cool!  My friend Cheryl Barron completed an absolutely gorgeous quilt that had wool appliques on a flannel background.  I think I may have to give it a try.  Two of my main suppliers now have really yummy hand dyed wool, so ordering and getting the product in will be much easier.  I'm excited!  We have fat quarters of virgin wool in very pretty colors and yesterday we got 6" squares of hand dyed! Come check it out!
