It's Here ~

Not the 4th of July, but the arrival of Rebekah L. Smith's book.  Oh my.  It was worth the wait.
The book is chock full of eye candy.  Many full size patterns are included.  Supplies needed, stitches, hints, tips, how-to, instructions.  It is all there ~ and more.
Here are just a couple patterns.  (Please excuse the glare.)

I love this idea for storing bits of wool.

If you are new to wool applique or a seasoned veteran, this book is a must have.  You can sit for hours just drooling over her work.  This is one book you won't be sorry you bought.  (Available on Amazon.)
Thanks so much for stopping by. 
Pug hugs :)


  1. Thanks Lauren for the tip on the book. I'll order it
    tomorrow. I love wool appliqué and have done
    a lot of it, mostly penny rugs. Julia

  2. I didn't order because I would only like to do the box tops, not the fabulous mats and larger pieces. I know. I'm weird. But if you think the tips are worth it, I'll order. Thanks.

  3. Oh my, guess most of her designs could also be adapted to hooked pieces, right? If so then I'm sold.

  4. I was so excited to go out to the mail box and there it was, I love it and I have looked and looked at it. I would love to do every single project in that book. I love her directions too. It really is such a nice book. I am so glad you got yours too. You mentioned on your blog and I bought it on Amazon way back when. It is so pretty.

  5. It looks like a great book and beautiful wool projects as well as ideas for the home.


  6. I love it too and want to stitch each and every project !!!
    Blessings, Patti
