A Philphlot...

Wool Applique by Rose at

This has been one of the slowest, sweetest summers
I've had in years.  We decided to do a few 'staycations' -
Day trips and an easy laid back schedule...
a little gardening, picnics, bike riding, long walks at dusk,
farmers market on Saturday mornings, cookouts with friends.
and lots of stitching (to keep me sane and grounded !)

I'm working on a Wool Applique project right now.

This is a "Philphlot" design...
If you're not sure what a Philphlot is...
check back and see... I'll show you the finished design
just as soon as I have it completed !

A lot of people have been asking about the silver
'wool' charm on my scissors.
I purchased mine from Ali Strebel.
It can be found HERE.

  5. Beautiful design and colrs.
    Your summer sounds lovely.
    We are stuck inside so much as humidity and heat is hard.
    We mow and garden early morning and evening.
    Ive done stiching and some small wood projects for a pn.
