Spools and Tools and Wools

A Little Peace at Christmas


You will find that I most always choose Valdani Threads in my work.  I often choose a thread that matches the wool to attach and then choose a contrasting thread to highlight areas.  My favorite ones are variegated.



We all use tools for wool applique and we all have our favorite ones that work best for us. There are many ways to trace, cut ,attach and stitch.  I hope that in my patterns and the way I work helps you along the way. 



All sheep are not created equal!    Lol. Meaning you need to examine the wools you choose.  Too thick? Too thin?  Where to begin?   I love the ones that are a little different from one side to the other.  Many choices

Hello I'm Susan Gonzales...

First I want to say thank you for taking the time to look at my patterns.  I am having so much fun creating them. I have been working with wool for over 20 years now and loving every moment. Hope they make you smile.  Susan


Cutting wool and hooking rugs is a relaxing way to spend the day!


This is my Hubby, Kirk...

I am so lucky to have a supportive husband who jumps right in and helps with just about anything I ask.  I couldn't do it without him. I also have a wonderful big family that always encourages me, so at the age of 60 I'm putting it out there and having fun.
