Wool Applique Folk Art Blog Tour ~ my day


I was so pleased, delighted and a little nervous to be invited to participate in this blog tour....as I am not much for writing....stitching, appliquing, quilting are my stronger areas of creativity but I am such an ardent admirer of Rebekah L. Smith's here I go.....
About a year ago while enjoying the pleasures of Pintrest I came across a wool piece, so unique, so different in style that I had to immediately research who was the artistic, brilliant, clever, expert, ingenious, masterly, proficient, skilled wool craftsperson ~ Rebekah L. Smith
Be still my heart, I was smitten, head over heels, gaga, in awe of all the marvelous works in wool that she had created. I began following her blog, website, Facebook page....darn near a stalker!


I was finally lucky and quick enough to purchase one of her finished goods.....a covered box with a sweet wool applique lid, my treasured piece sits right next to my stitching chair holding my threads inside while using the lid for my needles.....her work feeds my soul daily with inspiration.


I'm over the moon with excitement to not only be able to meet Rebekah in September at the San Diego Quilt Show but to be able to learn from her while taking her class....
For Needles and Threads ~ Sewing Caddy




Rebekah has energized, awakened and influenced many of us with folk art style of wool work....so if you love wool, applique and folk art this book is a must needed addition to your creating library.


CT Publishing is kindly giving away one of Rebekah's books to a lucky winner on my blog.....to enter simply leave a comment on my blog and email info so I can contact you for mailing address....I will pick a winner on Sunday August 30th

enjoy ~ Cheri
