Well, some of them included fats (fat quarters)...cut into 2.5" strips. But you could make all these with Jelly Rolls, the non-fattening kind.Continue
The Spin-in finished on Monday.
My fiber was 4 oz. of hand-painted Polwarth wool roving from Greenwood Fiberworks in "Lavender Hedgerow."
I was really out of practice, so this was good for me. I…
On the bright side, the first appliqué block of the First Ladies Quilt, the "Martha Washington Wreath," is finished.
There will be two of these, and I have started the second one. I'm using the needleturn method. My local quilt shop, …
I've made progress on the Brick Cardigan this week:
However, I have also been trying to get some quilting in before the Spin-in scheduled for the end of this…
It has NOT been a quiet week here. First, there were the Sundance shifts, but I had some knitting time during some of them, so here's my progress:
I'm on the first sleeve, but this photo was taken before the Super Bowl game, so it's a little further along…
I'm making use of the new LED light for my Featherweight, which is back out of its case and on the job.
The piecing of the first quilt top of the new year, "Seeing Stars," is almost done. Here's the photo…
Here's wishing you all peace on Earth.
Vintage Stitchers met on Thursday for the annual holiday potluck at Rebecca's. Barbara commented that we've been meeting now for ten years. A few members have stopped coming or moved away, but most of us still meet twice a month.
As usual, we had lots of…
Wasatch & Wool just opened up near me, about five minutes by car.
It's the first yarn shop in Park City in many years that wasn't in a corner of another store. We have had a Michael's for several years, but if you wanted…Continue
It was a great week for quilting. Common Threads met at Janet's, and we had a variety of projects.
Ellen is working on the second block for her Home Sweet Home quilt. She isn't sure if she'll make all…Continue
It might have been a hare-brained scheme to make four bunnies, but I finished the third boy bunny, this one for Johan.
Here's what he looks like without his little kimono. He's wearing garter-stitch booties and soaker, actually knitted as part of the legs and body.…
The girl bunny is finished, although I have plans for a sweater to go over her sun dressContinue
Common Threads met at Ginny's. Julie is almost done with her Girl Fox from Little Cotton Rabbits:
She has also finished the head of the elephant.
I started my first project from this designer (the…
In place of my regular blog post this week, I decided to hold sort of a celebration of life for my dear friend, who passed away early Thursday after a prolonged illness.
I invited a few people to share their memories of Susan. If you have memories to share, you can add them in…Continue
My Mr. F. is moving along.
He's still headless, but at least he has arms now. They look rather flabby, though. I need to take him to Silver Sneakers with me so he can lift some weights.
Mr. F. has been a major UFO since 2009, when I got two arms and one leg done (almost) and quit. Now he's…
The quilt for Habitat for Humanity's Overall Ball fundraiser is coming along. I finished putting the blocks together with sashing, corner stones and a border.
This involved a consult with Janet and another one with Julie, as we were trying to get by with fabrics on hand. I was scrambling, but…
While school doesn't start for 2 more days here in Boston, it does feel like it is over now that we are back home from our cottage (well, except for the 90+ degree temps outside) and have to start getting mentally prepared for the 5:15 a.m. alarm come Thursday. I'm still feeling exhausted from a busy weekend, but it is a good tired. Many changes over the past few months and reality is sinking in.
Our DD graduated from school with a PharmD and just recently passed her national…Continue
