Try It On Tuesday: Another Place and Time

Kansas City Star sent me a wonderful stack of books to review.  I’ve been having the best time paging through them.  Today I’d love to show you the book, Another Place and Time:  18 Primitive Projects Inspired by Travels Near and Far by Maggie Bonanomi.


I love wool projects so I had to check this out.  If you take a look at the front cover you’ll see a portion of a wall hanging and the cute veggie pincushions.

I really love this little abc sampler.  I have a thing about abc samplers to start with. So of course I loved this.

There are 18 projects in the book.  There are a couple hooked projects….this pillow and a rug.

There are some super cute little pincushions too.

There is even a woolen quilt.

I’d love to keep this one and make that abc sampler for the new house but as of now…I don’t know where I’d even be able to hang it.

So…I am passing it along to one of you.  Are there any of you out there who like to work with wool??  This book could be yours.  Just leave a comment saying if you make wool projects or if you’d be starting a new hobby.

It you are looking for a giveaway we don’t want to disappoint.  We have $50 Visa Gift Card and a Monsters University Blu-ray Combo Pack giveaway going on here.

    I’ve just started dabbling my toe in wools. I have been reading about thrifting woolens and then felting them. This book looks like a great way the start!

    I love wool and gave made some cute wool projects. I love Maggie’s books, I have one of hers. I too like Abc samplers.

    I’ve never worked with wool but I would love to try one. There are so many cute projects out there!

    I’m completely ADDICTED to working with wool!!! I love Maggie’s style, and have had my eye on this book, but I’ve been trying to curb my spending. Thank you for the chance to win it!

    I don’t have any of Maggie’s books. I would love to have one. I love seeing her projects made in my LQS. I haven’t worked with wool, but have been collecting it. This book would be perfect to get me started. I love the ABC Sampler, too. I have always wanted to try my hand at rug hooking and the hooked pillow would be a perfect one to start with. Thanks for the chance to win this book!

    Have not worked with wool in over 20 yrs. This book would be great to spark that love interest again. I would love to work on the wall hanging . Perfect time of year to start a wool project. Well, anytime of year works for me !

    Wool applique is something I know nothing about but want to know…..I’ve managed to collect some wool fabrics but as if yet I don’t know how to start……No one in my area has had a class yet but I keep hoping I’ll come across one…one of these days it will happen. I’ll start project even if I don’t have a clue! or there will be a class. I’m hoping for the class. Ha Ha.

    I have done a few basic projects but I have a whole pile of recycled wool. This looks like a beautiful book!

    I made several small projects with wool years back. I love that sampler and the quilt. I’d love to win this book and make those projects. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Oh, I would make the sampler, as I too love samplers. I think I would frame it. A rug hooking class if finally being held in my area, so I will be taking that. Yep, I like wool. Thanks for a chance!

    I don’t have a blog but I read yours every day! I am just starting wool projects and love Maggie’s patterns that I have seen. I would love her book! Thank you for the chance to win such a beautiful book!

    I really enjoy working with wool. A friend started my journey a few years ago and it is such fun to play with softness of wool and all of the beautiful patterns. I would love to win this book. Thank you for the chance.

    This book looks very interesting. I’ve worked with wool, making clothing, for many years and have just “played” with it in quilting. This could send me in a whole different direction.

    I LOVE wool–wool applique took over my quilting and now I have found rug hooking. I adore Maggie’s books, in progress doing one of her rug patterns. This book has been on my list so it would be wonderful to win. Thanks for the chance.

  15. Nancy Albano

    I love the all wool projects I have seen–candle mats, mug rugs and that beautiful heart pillow you showed above. It is a miracle that I have never made a single one! Please choose me so I can get started with wool. I can see me having to buy a sheep to keep up with my next addiction!

  16. Judy1522

    I am just getting interested in working with wool and have a project in mind that I will be starting soon.

  17. Nell

    I have collected wools, but not done anything with them. This would be a huge motivator to USE some of it UP!

  18. sandy Lowery

    I like to work with wool. I have a recycled white wool coat that I disected last night, in the dryer right now. Thanks for the chance.

  19. Dorothy

    I have been collecting wool and have a few patterns in mind but have not tried it yet. Looks like a great book filled with projects that would make any of us happy!

  20. Cindy p

    Absolutely love Maggie’s ideas..she is an inspiration!! I try to use recycled wool, but it gets harder and harder to find..Quilt stores are selling wool at $60-$70.00 dollars a yard!! Good thing I try to keep a stash!! Jo, you’ve got to try it more often when you’re settled in that new house!!!!

  21. Barb Colvin

    So far I’ve made a wool pincushion and a wool quilt. I have more patterns and ideas in mind. Really need to hit the thrift stores for more wool :)

  22. Bonnie Larson

    I’ve done a bit of wool applique. It’s great – no turning under seams – Looks like a great book. Thanks so much for sharing.

  23. Christine in Alberta

    I have quite a collection of wool, but no books to speak of. I use some of my wool in applique as I love the texture and the fact that it doesn’t fray. I also love the look of the ABC sampler, when I use to cross stitch, samplers were one of my favourite patterns. Would love to win this book and try some different projects with my wool. Thank you for the opportunity.

  24. Susan P

    I have never made a wool quilt, however, I have collected a few fat quarters because I loved the deep, bright colors. Would love to win! Thanks for the chance.
