Last fall, I got this magazine, Sew Scrappy, a special edition from American Patchwork & Quilting. It holds several projects I want to make.
First up is this one, called Lots of Dots in the magazine. I've never worked with wool or done hand buttonhole stitch, but no matter; I'm game for something new.
I bought a bunch of small pieces of wool at a vendor's booth at a quilt show (Attic Heirlooms in Maine) and augmented with more wool from an Etsy seller (Quilting Acres).
I have the circles cut out, and I bought a piece of black wool for the background. On Saturday, I'll swing by Michaels for the embroidery floss and I'll be ready to go.
