Plans for a spinning and quilting weekend

Alison brought in her Crown Mountain Farms Corriedale Roving. I talked her into letting me keep it to start playing with my blending of bright roving colors and the chocolate brown. I ordered more roving from Crown Mountain Farms so I will have enough to make a sweater and give one "hank" of roving back to Alison.

You can see that my English Paper Piecing experiment is coming along nicely. I do love working along, one hexagon at a time. It actually goes much faster than I had expected. I'm using the Fat Quarter Quilt pattern from Paper Pieces.

I would like to head home to start playing but it's only 2:30!

Hi Susan,

Click on the Crown Mountain Farms link and you can find the roving. The Corriedale comes in four natural colors.

Oh, that will be gorgeous with your bright rovings!! I can't wait to see how it turns out. ^_^

The brown roving looks great with the hexagons. (Maybe I should post a photo of my GMFG quilt...) --Peggy

Did this roving come in that color? I really like it, but I can't get Corriedale here locally, I'd have to order it and I haven't tried ordering roving as yet... just a little preliminary spinning with my drop spindle, more practice than anything else.

It's exactly what I want for my bright color/chocolate brown yarn! It's just too exciting!

Kelley: The roving looks about like you wanted for the sweater you talked about the other day. The color is very rich. I hope it works out beautifully!

2:30... that is too early to head home. Don't worry the time will pass quickly and you can get started on your REAL work. Susan
