On Wednesday a snowstorm hit. Not some wimpy October snow that melts as soon as it hits the ground, no!
This was a regular, full-blown snowstorm.
We went out early in the day for a get-together with friends we met during the presidential campaign last year. We went to Kneader's at Kimball Junction for breakfast and caught up on…Continue
In Common Threads this week, we had a special meeting to view the video, "Learn to Love Needleturn" by Mary Sorensen.
We gathered at our usual start time at Janet's to have a bite to eat before the meeting. We had eight people, in spite of our first real snowstorm, with…Continue
On Wednesday, Karan and I went to Joanie's to help her with her paper-pieced pine-tree blocks.
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.
In spite of a busy week, there was some progress on several projects. The appliqué part of the Delectable Pathways quilt is coming along.
I worked on it some during the Common Threads meeting, which took place at…Continue
Wednesday, Deanna, my weaving teacher, came to my house to help me set up my loom and give me a lesson.
We picked up my new loom on Wednesday and set it up in the living room until spring.Continue
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…Continue
It was a busy week! Sunny and I went to visit clients in the nursing home as usual on Tuesday.
Then we had Common Threads on Thursday. My friend Ellen is working on this French Braid design for a quilt top (above). Kay finished a baby blanket for her cleaning lady, who is expecting (below).…Continue
We haven't had any snow yet, but fall is definitely in the air. I'm hoping to get my Dogwood Blossoms sweater done in time to wear this winter.
Winter comes early in Northern Utah, especially above 7,000'! We often have a light snowfall in September, so it won't be long now.
After last week's…Continue
We're still at home, since BS hasn't put in his appearance this early, but we'll be taking off soon, regardless.
One of my projects this week was to finish the baby hat DGD1 started when she was here. I used it to teach her how to knit in the round, and then I continued it, but it has been…Continue
DDIL1 and I visited the Little Scrap Quilt Shop, in Kokomo, Indiana. We found a nice selection of fabrics and notions, and learned that they will arrange classes of your choice if you line up two or more friends to take the class with you.
They have a nice space for the…Continue
It has been switching back and forth between snow and rain every day for a week. At least I have my knitting to keep me warm!
Before my DSIL passed away in October, she gave me her one and only UFO: an Aran Cardigan she had started for her DH, using wool from Kilronan on the island of Inish Mor,…Continue
Sunny and I needed to be recertified for Delta Society/Therapy Animals of Utah. We had to run through a series of tasks to see how we respond to things that might happen in a setting where we provide therapy. Actually, Sunny provides the therapy; I'm just the weight at the end of the leash. Well, I also keep the list of the rooms in the nursing home we need…
What a Christmas it has been! How wonderful to have family around you with it's accompanying chaos!
Daphne's BSJ is perfect; just big enough to be able to last for a while, but still small enough to wear now! The quilt was a big hit, too! They loved the colors and the label with the photo of their little…Continue
Today I am hoping that the "winter weather" that has been called for will hold off so I can visit with my "Fiber Friends"! I am in a little group of ladies that gather approximately once a month to visit and knit and spin, and our favorite part is Show and Tell! I am so thankful for these ladies, they are kind of like the "aunts" that I do not have by blood. We always have such a pleasant time, everyone is so encouraging. I suppose that we are like "lights" in each others lives, it is such a…Continue
We finally did our Dye Along with the sock blanks! Yay!
So I finally dyed my lace weight from KP yesterday using red and yellow onions! Here are the results.…Continue
