Then I had to find a project for them! So I searched my stash of quilt mags and books and found the perfect one for the holidays—this pretty poinsettia pin. Granted this pattern doesn't call for brown wool but I might find a way to incorporate it. As I looked carefully at the photo, I realized I have the same herringbone green wool somewhere in my stash, too. So I guess it's time to get stitching!
I've also been making more of my wool flower ornaments for the feather tree. I just have to make a few more and I'll have just the right mix of wool flowers and other ornaments.
