High Fiber—The Skies of Roswell

It's Like the Skies of Roswell! Except this is a different kind of UFO.

My Yei Figures Bag is finished except for adding the beads to the necklaces and bolos.

I decided to line it with some nice quilting fabric.…

High Fiber—High in the Clouds

It was a busy week, as usual, The little rug from my weaving class came off the loom. It's almost finished. I still need to decide the treatment for the fringe. Here's the front. 

The back is the same as the front, except that the colors are reversed, and the clasps show up. You might remember from last week…

High Fiber—Final Finishes

With the end of Tour de Fleece (TdF), most of the participants have moved on (or back) to other projects. 

One of the projects I returned to was the pillow covers, the class project for my Craftsy class, “Floor Loom Weaving.” After the fabric was ready to take off the loom, the next step was to look…

High Fiber—Finishing, Fulling and Phones.

My favorite project for this past week is still my woven bag, now with lining and in use as my handbag:

There’s even room for a small knitting project and my iPad, but the bag itself isn’t heavy. The handles came from Joann’s. The homespun lining came from my fabric…

High Fiber—April Fool for Fiber

I've given up all my fiber fun so I can spend the time doing housework and keep my home spotless. Not!
The big quilting news for this week is that Julie finished quilting my Hexagon Quilt. I'm going to use it as a table topper for the little table in our living room, which is currently shoved…

High Fiber—Flipping Out!

I finished my first woven scarf:
If you look up close you can see very uneven selvedges and tension on the right end (where I started), but what you can see on the left side (where I finished) is my improvement as I went along. This scarf will be a great reminder of how far I've come! The second…

High Fiber—Winter Projects

We were supposed to have Vintage Stitchers at my house last Thursday, but DH is still down with a bad cold, one we would rather not share with our friends. Barbara stepped in (she was my backup in case of snow) and hosted us at her house. Ellen is back in town and brought her Hibiscus quilt top to give to Julie for quilting.…

High Fiber—Ghost of Christmas (and Birthday) Presents!

I was too sick to enjoy my birthday, but I'm enjoying it now. This was my big present from DH, for a big birthday (hint: it has a "0" in it).

This loom was made about 40 years ago for my friend Joanie by Tools of the Trade, Fair Haven, VT. The craftsman who made it was Arthur Weitzenfeld. It's a 45", which means it can make a piece that's 45" wide.…

High Fiber—Sampling Cross-stitch.

We had a rare treat at Vintage Stitchers this week:

High Fiber—Dogs and Demos

It has been a busy week. So busy, in fact, that I forgot to put my knitting up and left it in a chair. DH put it on the floor. 

Sunny decided she could improve on my version of the Dogwood Blossoms…

High Fiber—BS Arrives at Last!

You might as well skip this blog post if you don't like baby pictures!

 

BS finally arrived, and we learned that his name is Soren Hendrick Stuart. They wanted something Scandinavian to balance off the Scottish surname, I guess. Soren is the Swedish version of Thor, God of Thunder. This baby is…
