Let the Wooly Block Adventure begin!!
We are excited to join this year's Wooly Block Adventure (WBA), Into the Woods, officially branding us as "Woolies"! The Adventure runs from October 1 through November 30. Throughout that period, different shops will be spotlighted for a couple of days, during which time the digital pattern will be available for free download. Check out the WBA website and like them on Facebook to follow the fun as we traverse Into the Woods.
Wouldn't you like to become a "Woolie" and stitch this sweet girl (or boy) trekking the woods to see Grandma?
Going to Grandma's
If you would prefer to make a little boy rather than a girl, just sub in the boy with the included templates.
Welcome to our Wooly Block Adventure Block—Going to Grandma’s. Our little girl (or boy!) is on her way through the woods to Grandma’s house but makes a quick stop to feed a sweet little cardinal. Embroidery with three different types of fibers adds dimension to this woodland scene, and while our little girl (or boy) is going to her Grandma’s, your sign can say whatever you would like! The pattern now include templates for both a boy and a girl, depending on your preferences.
Finished block size: 8-inch square
The kit includes the complete printed pattern with templates, black wool for the background, all wool needed to complete the block, 1.5 yards of Valdani white #8 pearl cotton thread, and a snowflake button. Also included is some extra wool for an optional finishing project, the Into the Woods Runner, described below. This charming runner will take you through the winter, topping a table, the back of a couch, or the bottom of a bed.
An optional thread kits includes the threads that we used to complete the block: Weeks DyeWorks floss, crewel wool, and #8 pearl cotton; and The Gentle Art floss and wool thread.
