warm homespun greetings

As another year winds down, we find ourselves seeking all things comfortable— comfort food (think macaroni and cheese!), comfy clothes and the comfort you get spending time with loved ones. Our cozy lineup of projects runs the gamut from quilts of all sizes to punch needle, cross stitch and hooked rugs. Among them, you’ll find a healthy dose of holiday cheer. Bedecked in timeless classics such as mistletoe and holly, poinsettias and even a sleigh, they’re sure to get you in the spirit of the season. We were delighted to photograph this issue’s photos at yet another beautiful historical setting in the Mid-Ohio Valley. The charming Fearing House made it easy to capture the spirit of yesteryear with authentic primitive style in every corner, not to mention its treasure trove of…

Dear Jeni, How do you cut accurate wool circles? Thank you, Dorothy Dear Dorothy, Personally, I don’t worry much about accurate wool shapes but there are several options to choose from. To cut a circle, I cut a square that is close to the size I need, then round off the corners.
