Felted wool- Warm and wonderful!

Hello from the frozen north!  Actually, today is tolerable but for the last week, we in Western New York have been shivering in the grips of the polar vortex!  When it is this cold, my thoughts turn to...wool!  As you know if you have visited my blog in the past, I am a lover of all things wool. If you are like me, you are going to love the site that I discovered recently.  It is called the Merry Hooker Woolens but I am calling it heaven! They have an awesome collection of hand dyed and mill dyed woolens, as well as patterns, books, and kits that are to "dye" for!  Here are some of my favorites:

I am thinking that I might have to start working on this sweet bird holding the cherry....maybe after I do the laundry...or maybe before I do the laundry!
In my book, you can never have too many table runners...or things with pears on them!
And who says that wool applique has to be primitive?  There are lots of new artists who are designing contemporary patterns that are just sooo cool.  Merry Hooker Woolens has a nice selection of bright hand dyed wools that will brighten even the gloomiest winter day.  Enjoy!
