I forgot to mention that I met Elizabeth Angus and I bought her book "Cozy Wool Applique Pillows". I saw the pillows made up at her booth and I thought "Oh my goodness, I love them all". So I am working on my first one, but I am making 2 of them.
I am making the one with the pumpkin background with the sheep on it. Lucky for me I have some wool. I am using Valdani floss. Now I rug hook for awhile and then I applique. I have to tell you, it has been a while since I found a book that I liked every single pattern in it. Usually I only like a couple.
