  3. One of your best videos, enjoyed the prep review. Leslie and I are beginning the Flower Garden wool BOM from Pioneer Quilts and the review helped a lot. Good timing! Looking at that empty space behind your table, thinking that SS is in place now. Fun! And by the way, will we be seeing your Lil Buffalo in Central Cali soon?

  5. Hi Anna, am watching the video and have got to the bit about "sticking your tongue out while cutting"! I can so relate!

  6. While watching the opener to the video I was thinking how nice it was to see green grass and no snow! I'm so ready for spring. We don't have as much snow here in central Montana as you do but we haven't had the chinooks and periods of "no snow" that we usually have each winter. Just tired of looking at it and trying to navigate the ice. At least the sunny days help keep the dreariness at bay and so do your fun videos! Love the pattern you prepped. I'll have to dig that PPQ issue out and put it in my to do pile. I've been prepping my wool like you do since your first wool prepping video and I have to say it works great! So much neater than the glue method I tried on my fist wool project. Thanks for all the great information you share! Looking forward to the next video. Thanks to G for being such a good cameraman too!

  7. Great video, Anna! I love learning your techniques and getting inspired :-)
    I see the empty space where your longarm used to reside. I'm hoping you show a video of your new set up. Have fun rocking that Sweet 16!

  9. Fun videos, some reality is always good to show that mistakes happen and you got to roll with them. Loved your slip of saying projects when I think you meant products that you use in projects. Now I see what the spoil blocks were for. Have fun stitching it on one of your trips soon I hope.

  11. Thank you for your videos!! Picked up a wipe board this week to try your goals list for myself. Buttermilk Basin should be very happy with their sales lately!! I'm hooked on wool after following you

  12. Oh Anna! I can hear and see the despair and frustration from all that winter yuck! We had a winter like that last year...3ft came with one storm and then came the melt and refreeze and melt and refreeze... it can certainly make a person go bonkers!!!! You're keeping a great attitude with keeping busy with colorful threads, wools and fabrics... the thaw will be here before you know it! :-) Thank you for sharing the tip to flip the wool and steam again with the Soft Fuse! I used it for the first time on my current project and some of it stuck better than others... a little extra press may have done it perfect! Have a beautiful weekend!!! Hang in there! :-)

  14. Love your videos. Do you use SF 101 on cotton embroidery fabric? And do you still use a hoop for the stitching?

  15. Love the video, Anna. I am new to working with wool, so I am trying to absorb all the tips and tricks I can. Your demos and instructions are great. Thanks so much! Have a great day!

  16. Hi Anna! Love the tutorial; thank you for the review. How are you stitching the wool down-blanket or whip stitch? I've been using the blanket stitch for just about everything, but now I'm reading and hearing that a lot of teachers/designers prefer the whip stitch.
