High Fiber—UFO-a-go-go.

I had several irons in the fire this week, but the big news is, I'm coming down the home stretch on my Delectable Pathways quilt.

I got the top pretty much put together yesterday. I still have some appliqué to do on leaves that cross over seams. There are also two seams to sew, left…

High Fiber—A Look Back, Part II: Quilting

Last week, we had a look at some of my older knitting projects. This week I'm going to show you some of my quilting projects from yesteryear, before I started my blog. Let's start with my first quilt ever...sort of:…

High Fiber—In the Bleak Midwinter

Now that the film festival is over, it's time for lots of snow. It's a good time to stay indoors and quilt or knit. 

My "wow" for this week has to be Julie's Double Wedding Ring quilt, which she designed for her parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Julie used pillow cases for the photos because of the…

High Fiber—Holiday Fun, Part Deux

From Wisconsin, we drove 10 hours to Peru, Indiana, just north of Kokomo to visit DS1 and DDIL1.

DS1 and DDIL1 had her grandkids to visit, so it was a full house, with four adults, three kids and four dogs. The kids have grown up a lot since we saw them last. We visited the library in Peru to get…

High Fiber— Holiday Fun, Part 1

We had a great Christmas visit in Wisconsin.

It was a white Christmas, and when it wasn't too cold, we had some play time.

The presents were lovely. For example, here's my Fabric Haul, part one. (More coming during a shopping trip to Kokomo/Indianapolis.)…

High Fiber—Cold and Colds, Mishaps and Repairs

It's been a hard week in the mountains of Utah. The weather was part of it. 

That was taken Wednesday. We had several more inches over the weekend. I had to turn off the alerts on my weather app, because it kept waking me up at night and annoying me during the daytime. (As if I couldn't just…

High Fiber—Rolling Over and Over in My Gravy.

What a week! Soren and his entourage came for Thanksgiving, since we won't be able to be together for Christmas this year. 

I spent most of the week cooking and cleaning. The kids arrived Wednesday night, and we had Thanksgiving dinner early in the evening on Thanksgiving. The dinner…

High Fiber—Bare Bones Dismantle

Halloween is nearly upon us! Was it worth waiting for?

I'll let you know next week. Something that I've been waiting for...although I still have some meat on my bones...was definitely worth it. Remember when I got the loom for my birthday, and we had to wait "for the snow to melt" to move it around…

High Fiber—Close Calls

As always after a trip, there's lots of laundry and cleaning to do. I managed to make some progress on my appliqué project, though.

There was a lot of laundry to do when we got back, especially with the extra towels for the kids. Our ancient Maytag washer has taken to only liking to run one load…

High Fiber—The Tour Continues....

After the first full week of the Tour de Fleece (TdF), my second “bump” of Full Circle Roving is finished. 

This was my exhausted wheel, Stanzi, a Kromski Sonata, who was ready to ply after a night’s rest. Here’s a look at my progress. (Notice she has her back to the TV.…

High Fiber—Spring Comes to the Mountains!

Our daffodils bloomed just in time for Mother's Day!

The hummingbirds are back, too. The hiking trails are almost clear of snow. The mud is starting to dry on the trails, so we decided to take a hike in Toll Canyon, near our home, on Wednesday. It looked like a nice day when we started out, but it…

High Fiber—Progress on All Fronts

I've been spinning some Knit Picks Full Circle Spinning Roving in various colors. Currently, I have "Pigeon" on the wheel. Here are all the colors together:

All that's missing from the photo is the fiber currently on the wheel (although you can see some of the pale-gray "Pigeon" already spun in the…

High Fiber—New Beginnings

My carpet warp came, along with five wooden bobbins for my boat shuttles, which I ordered from the Yarn Barn in Lawrence, Kansas. The bobbins will be used to make scarves out of my sock yarn (and other) stash:

I wasted no time getting my loom ready to go…

High Fiber—Back on My Rocker and Weaving Looming Large!

We picked up my new loom on Wednesday and set it up in the living room until spring.

Joanie's son, Mike, helped take it partially apart, so he came along to help put it back together.…

High Fiber—Seams About Right!

The quilting bug has hit me again:

I just finished this quilt top which will be a topper for our little table in the living room. The quilt contains several fabrics I received for Christmas along with some I bought when I visited DS1 and DDIL1 in Kokomo last year.

The sewing "fit" followed a…

High Fiber—Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!

Christmas was good, but my birthday, which started at a few minutes after 10:00 PM, which was a few minutes after midnight in Florida, where I was born many, many years ago, sucked! Well, this was supposed to be the "Big 70." It was, actually 70, but it was by far the worst birthday of my life, if you don't…

High Fiber—Prelude to Christmas.

I can't believe that a week from today will be Christmas Eve!

The realization is sinking in, though. We had Sundance volunteer sign-up on Monday, in preparation for the festival in January. Another reminder was holiday parties have been taking place with greater frequency. It's great to see old friends and relatively new but very special friends as…

High Fiber—Jumping the Rails

I had to take time out from the Dogwood Blossoms Cardigan this week to make pajamas for a pair of dolls:
The dolls are the Bitty Twins from American Girl. You can buy them a variety of races,…

Stork Union Allows Easter Bunny To Deliver Baby

After circling the house for two weeks and unable to find a place to land, the Stork Delivery Service gave up and allowed the Easter Bunny to take over for an early Easter morning Delivery.

He arrived at 13 minutes after midnight on Easter morning. His weight was 8 lbs 4 oz and he measured 20.5 oz.…
