High Fiber—Monkey Brain

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…

High Fiber—Nesting for Winter, Part II

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…

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—Needles and Pins

Chugging away on the Delectable Pathways quilt:

This is the last of three panels, and I only have two more flowers left to appliqué. 

The Puyallup Socks are done and on my feet:…

High Fiber—Baby Storms the Bastille..and Arrives Early!

The stork decided that Johan Aro Stuart needed to try out his BSJ and his Horse Baby Quilt sooner than scheduled. He arrived Saturday night, four weeks early.

Even though little Johan is pre-term, he is still a good size, 6 lbs 6 oz and 18" long. Other than some…

High Fiber—Cutting Up

Two months into my Mary Tudor cardigan I thought I had the sleeves done, when I discovered a major oopsie while taking this photo:

Do you see it? (Sleeve cap on the left sleeve, to your right in the photo.)

The chart symbols for two of the colors are two different sizes of circles, not very…

High Fiber—End of Winter? Beginning of Summer?

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…

High Fiber—Fiber Obsessed

The Mary Tudor is coming along.

The first sleeve is finished. I think the sleeve might be too long, but I can't tell until I block it and sew it in. Even though I started at the cuff, it's easy to lengthen or shorten a sleeve. I'll take out one round about where I want to start the cuff by cutting the…

High Fiber—Hitting the Road

Soren's I-spy quilt arrived, and he is clearly enjoying it!

High Fiber—Spring at Last

Last week found me quilting again.

All the cutting is done and I've finished 11 of the 24 pieced blocks for BS2's baby quilt. It will have one appliqué block depicting a little horse, to represent the baby' shorthand year, "Year of the Horse." The blocks are from the quilt "Twin Stars" from …

High Fiber—Getting out of Dodge

High Fiber—Getting out of Dodge

Another crazy week! However, the next week should be calmer. More on that later. The BSJ for BS2 is almost finished. 

Just the shoulder/sleeve seams and buttons to go. That won't take long, so I'm putting it off for a bit, since BS2 isn't…

High Fiber—UFO Sightings

It's another week for UFOs. Janet's Sipalu Bag is finished!

Janet started this bag in 2008. She thinks of herself as a quilter, not a knitter, but she has the talent, learns new techniques quickly…

High Fiber—Spring Has Sprung

It has been another crazy week. Besides my spring cleaning, Ellen and I got together to watch Mary Sorensen's hand-appliqué DVD.
