Long Handle Dipping Gourds With Wool Applique...

Long Handle Dipping Gourds and Wool Applique - Three Sheep Studio Blog Post

Today is overflowing with warm sunshine
and cool breezes... just like a summertime day.
In fact, in the days coming, we are expected 
to get into the high 80's.

Long Handle Dipper Gourds
Perfectly dried and natural.

or any other chemical)

Out came the wool,
a snip here, a stitch there...

Hoot, hoot...
a wooly owl and a full moon.

A hand torn strip of
 hand dyed wool, tops each of these
long handle Dipper Gourds.
(I placed a small wire loop at the top of each,
for conveniently hanging.)
Each measures just a tad over 2 foot.

These Dipper Gourds will be at the 
19th Annual Artisans' Porchwalk in Lititz
on September 29 and 30. 
Approximately 40 Juried Artists and Craftsmen,
sprinkled throughout 
the Historic small town of Lititz !

Enjoy this beautiful day...

  2. The Porchwalk sounds like so much fun :)
    Fun finish on the gourds and I love those little pumpkins hanging from the split rail fence.

  3. I have painted and decoupaged gourds but your wool stitching is beautiful on them. You constantly amaze me.

  7. What is the number for Chocolate brownies. Must have it. Do you know what the wool is on the pillow? So beautiful. I am a hooker and would love to use that wool. You are so inspiring...now if I could only have half your talent for color I'd be thrilled. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Krissy...
      Valdani Perle Cotton Thread in the shade of Chocolate Brownies is #M90. It is a beautiful variegated thread ! The wool used for the pillow for the "In The Patch" punch needle design is either from The Wool Studio or Heavens To Betsy.
