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.

I got out my almost-finished block. This is the cardinal design she uses in this wonderful instructional DVD. I took her…

High Fiber—Happy Memorial Day!

We had Vintage Stitchers at my house on Thursday. Barbara finished sewing the binding on this quilt while she was here.
Carol has been working on this "moment of insanity" quilt. (I've had several like that.) The reason it's a moment of insanity quilt is because she had no idea how many…

Here's one of her new toys. It's a castle slide, just right for a little princess with an imagination and lots of energy. Baxter, the dog, enjoys watching her play on it, especially because it means she plays outdoors longer. Her little brother is…

High Fiber—Waiting for Baby

I'm knitting little things:



It's a pair of socks for me, out of Knit Picks Stroll Glimmer in "Fiji." The Dogwood Blossoms sweater is too difficult to work on with Miss Daphne in the room. She had to take each ball of yarn out of the bag, and a couple of times pulled the sts out of my needles. The socks are easier to hold onto and walk around…

High Fiber--Spring at Last!!!

The Crocuses (Croci?) are coming up!

 

That thing that looks like an iceberg floating on the street is...an iceberg. Actually, it's snow DH threw into the street to melt.
