wool wool and more wool

I am having such fun with wool! I made this cute pillow from Needl' love's French Market, and there's lots more from that book I want to make. I did make several changes, I sewed the rings of petals down with my machine using the walking foot and then not feeling the love with my attempts at rug hooking ( I did really try) I used a brown plaid wool, blanket stitched it on and added chenille knots. I used saftey pins to attach to the pillow top, this way I can make more flowers for different seasons and not have to make another pillow. Thinking I might need to make a daisy or a zinnia maybe a rose??

Earlier this week I started the flower penny rug from Summer Gatherings the flowers are the same as in the flower walk table mat but much much smaller I placed a dime on the mat so you can really see the size, I did use fusible web for the mini flower, I kept the pieces in little glassine bags, so I wouldn't lose them.
