Comfort Woolies

I forget every time how busy the last week of term is.  All my over ambitious plans go to the wall.  When I was little my grandpa used to say my eyes were bigger than my belly, especially at Christmas when a big plate of food could not be finished, well it seems it is the same with my sewing.  A nice surprise yesterday lunchtime to come home and find this in my google reader
winter woollies
My Winter Woolies pattern had been given the Aneela treatment!  Would you believe this is her first go at a paper piecing pattern?  You can read about her fabric choices here.  Such lovely soft colours and her embroidery details are, of course, just right.  Love love love it

  1. Aww that is very cute!! Are you teaching paper piecing in London? I'd like to have a go but am scared!!

  2. I love Aneela's take on Woolies pattern so much!

  3. You are the best teacher, hope you have lots more patterns up your sleeve???!
    Off to blush now!!

  4. Oh I've been wanting to try your Winter Woolies and candy cane pattern so much! I've never done paper piecing before. I really must give it a try. I love all of the pretty projects that everyone is making from them!!

  5. Love Aneela's fabric choices so much.

  6. That's really beautiful! What a lovely tribute to your pattern.

  7. I saw Aneela's version yesterday, it looks lovely :o)

    I also have the same issue as you with my overoptimistic make schedules. I'm not sure whether it's that I think it takes me less time to do things than it actually does, or that I imagine I won't ever be interrupted and I'll just sit down, nose to the grindstone, and plough through things (after 33 years you'd think I'd know me better!) or that there's about 30 hours in a day and I won't need sleep anyway... Probably a combination of all 3!
