High Fiber—Spinning My Wheel or Spinning My Wheels?

My mother had an expression she used when she felt like she had worked all day and hadn't accomplished anything. She said she felt as if she were spinning her wheels (and not the kind of wheels that produce yarn. That's how my week has been.





However, I did get some work done on my First Ladies Quilt. The…

High Fiber—Short and Sweet, and To the Point

This week saw the center of Pine Burr quilt finished.



Not too much else got done this week while I worked to put the blocks together. However, after all the work to paper-piece the blocks and larger cornerstones, it felt good to get it put together. This quilt is going to be way too big for my design…

High Fiber—The Last Bunny...by a Hare.

I finished the second boy bunny, this one for Soren.





He and Zachy's bunny have the same attire, although the bunnies look very different, so we won't get them mixed up at Christmas. Daphne's bunny is wearing Mary Janes, actually knitted as her feet. The two boy bunnies get Nikes (also…

High Fiber—Nesting for Winter

Why is my yarn stash in guest room?





This isn't even all of it. Not all of the yarn is in view. I would need a wide-angle lens to get it all in.

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…

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