    Try thrift stores in the summer. Lots and lots of wool garments for little or nothing.

    Caswews,
    This 'design' is one of his own. Told him I didn't want a 'picture' (because I do some much appliqueing) and that was what he came up with.

    best,

    Whigrose -

    My sister is a hooker. She does buy a lot of wool by the bolt but she buys a lot of wool garments at thrift shops. She washes them in her washer and dries them in the dryer. And then proceeds to rip and tear and scavenge. The best days for wool gathering is when the stores have their half off days.

    Your husband did a great job. My mother was all a hooker and she taught my youngest daughter to be a hooker.
