Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along Finish from From My Carolina Home

Did you get your wool applique done from part 1? When we left off, the motifs were stitched to the base. If you missed part 1 that has the pattern, click on Autumn Jubilee on the sidebar and go back a few posts.

Today we embellish and finish the needle keeper. Get out your stash of seed beads and other little lovelies, and add some bling to the project as you wish. For me, I put veins on the leaves with wool thread.

I did all the leaves, and left the acorns as they were.

Then I added just a ...

Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along from From My Carolina Home

One thing in my hand sewing basket that I use a lot is my felt needle keeper. It was a party favor years ago at a quilt club Christmas party. It is getting a bit shabby, but is so useful, that I thought maybe it would be nice to make one in wool. So our Autumn Jubilee Wool stitch along will be a needle keeper, but you can use the motifs to do a little penny rug instead if you prefer. Start by cutting out the shapes from the pattern pdf below and matching them to the wool felt colors ...

Autumn Jubilee Another Fun Project from From My Carolina Home

For this year’s #autumnjubilee2020, I tried something new and I hope you have fun reading about this project. I did this project in just a couple of hours, having some fun while I watched old black and white horror movies on TV.   Watching the original 1931 Dracula with Bella Lugosi and more of his horror classics, 1940s Frankenstein movies starring Peter Cushing, and more tales of terror with Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, Vincent Price, Lon Chaney Jr, Claude Rains, Lionel Atwill, Bette Davis, Lionel Barrymore, Basil Rathbone and many more is such fun on a rainy day.  TCM is ...

Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along – Finishing the Pillow from From My Carolina Home

Before we get started today, please review the Autumn Jubilee Rules and Notices for the entering the drawings for #AutumnJubilee2020. I have already had two disqualifications for different reasons, and I really don’t want to leave anyone out.  Now, let’s finish the pillow on our Wool Stitch Along.  When we left off, the appliques were stitched, and the veins were stitched.  This week we’ll embellish a bit and finish the project.

When the stitching is done, I like to press the piece to make sure all the handwork is laying flat before adding beads and buttons.

I ...

Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along from From My Carolina Home

Are you having fun with Autumn Jubilee? (#AutumnJubilee2020)  Today we continue with a new wool stitchery project.  I hope you like this new design!  This year we will make a wool pillow for a lovely Autumn accent.  You can also finish this into a wall hanging if you choose not to do a pillow.  Begin with selecting some beautiful wool felts or wool fabrics for your project. I ordered my wool felt for this project pictured below from One of the Flock, today’s giveaway sponsor. The felts are lovely soft, and the colors are stunning for fall projects.  Choose ...

Finishing the Autumn Wool Work Table Runner from From My Carolina Home

Yes, I got it done!  Finishing the wool work stitchery was a concentrated effort, working on it for several days to finish the details.  I don’t like to have UFOs, and I wanted this done to enjoy this season.  I left off needing to attach the last leaf, and get the veining and details embroidered.

I matched the DMC floss colors to the wool colors.  Five lines help define the pumpkin contours.

Leaf veins were embroidered on all the leaves.

Working on the Autumn Wool Work Runner from From My Carolina Home

Picking up where I left off during Autumn Jubilee, I have made a bit of progress on the Wool Runner.  I wasn’t able to finish it before the end of the event, so I had to continue working on it in November.  If you missed that and you’d like the free pattern, click on – Autumn Jubilee 2019 Wool StitchAlong

The runner design is two sections on each end of a runner.  I pinned the next sections in place.

Each end is similar but not exactly the same.  The elements are the same but the colors and placement is ...

Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along from From My Carolina Home

Did you get at least one end of your runner done?  Working on it during football games, I’ve been able to get the leaves stitched down, and begin the embellishments on one end.  Here is where we left off last week, with the shapes pinned in place.

I really love the Aurifil wool thread!! It embeds beautifully and make the stitches practically invisible!

Once you have the shapes stitched down, use matching colors of DMC floss to add the details such as the leaf veins and the pumpkin lines.  I pulled these colors to go with the wools I ...

Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along from From My Carolina Home

The Wool Stitch Along begins today, with an original pattern and a fabulous giveaway!!  We’ve done some little penny rugs in the past, and last year did a fun mini wall hanging.  This year we go bigger, with a table runner.

You know that I only recommend what I use, and I am really impressed with the wool fabrics I purchased from Primitive Homespuns (not an affiliate). The wool is tightly compacted, and there is no need to ‘felt’ it before stitching.  It is just heavenly to work with.  One of the things I love about these luscious wool ...
