Last weekend’s Spin Along resulted in some interesting yarn:
The roving (fiber) was AlohaBlu’s Targhee "Saturated Spring,” 2 oz. The result is more or less DK-worsted. I got 108 yds, Navajo-plied to show off…Continue
Dolly's bed is finished:
I used a Sterilite Underbed Box 28 Qt., Model #1846 DH found at Walmart for $4.38. To keep the mattress from sinking into the depression when Dolly lies down, I cut a piece of an old political sign the same size as the mattress, which is 16 X 23”, 1” foam (left over from…Continue
It has been a crazy week, but the Busy Bee Throw is coming along.
The arrow points to the top row of the three that still need sewing together. Coming down the home stretch. I think I have enough of the "Obsidian" to sc around the outside once, which should help it stay…Continue
We have cranked up the furnace, and I'm working on hand quilting my "Peggy's Sistine Chapel."
It should make us feel warmer just looking it. It's the "Delectable Pathways" pattern by Mary…Continue
The hexagons for the Busy Bee Throw are done and I'm sewing them together:
The Pine Burr quilt is finished. We…Continue
The Pine Burr Quilt is finished. (Well, it still need a label, but it’s as good as.)
The pattern was from McCalls…Continue
The Pucker Up Socks are done:
I wore them to Common Threads on Thursday. It's nice to wear bright socks when it's cold and rainy outside.
Georgette had finished this drop-stitch scarf, which Lynda is holding up. …Continue
Quilters! Finally, I have some quilts to show you. But first a little food.
Vintage Stitchers met at Janet's on Thursday. Marilyn brought this embroidered Christmas quilt center to show us. Now to put the borders on.…Continue
We're back from our trip, which included a Rhine River Cruise.
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, …
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
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…
Back to the question: A few months ago we discovered we had moths, originating in our Navajo rugs in the storeroom. While I was sad about…Continue
Wow! What a week! I always have to start with a photo, so here's Kay's rug:
She based this on a photo she took while on a cruise with her late husband. He helped her with suggestions and was a major contributor to keeping her interested in the project. It has been languishing since he passed away, but…Continue
Just a few days before the first day of summer, we got a huge snowstorm.
This is the snow coming off the roof. Where we live, it's common to get snow in June, but it doesn't usually accumulate.
The storm hit on Tuesday, catching us by surprise (rain was predicted) as…Continue
Soren's I-spy quilt is done and ready to send off:
Here's what it looked like after I got it back from Julie, who did the quilting.…Continue
Joanie finished the scarf and James Bond sweater for a friend expecting a baby. She dressed a moose in them and sent them off.
The pattern is the '50s Lounge Jacket from…Continue
This week has been crazy! Besides trips to eye doctor, dentist and Apple store for a new iPad, I made a trip to Shepherd's Bush and Needlepoint Joint in Ogden with friends from Common Threads.Continue
Get ready for adorableness.
Georgette made these booties using a kit she bought during their recent trip to New Zealand.
We met for Common Threads at Margareth's new place. She has moved in with her fiancée. The house is really nice. …Continue
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…Continue
