Fiber Arts & Furry Critters

Hi, Stella! Yes, I'm OK, just busy. Thanks for checking! Can't wait to see the fabric you bought, and the quilt pattern you plan to make!

It was a short week last week, because the kids were home on Monday. DH also took a couple of days off, and it seems like I get nothing done when he's home. We survived two days of horrendous winds, however (with only a small section of fence as a casualty). I was also missing my digital camera (lent it to my niece). Funny how hard it is to sit down and write anything if I don't have pictures to accompany it.

I really wanted to go to Rhinebeck this year, but couldn't face driving 3-1/2 hours each way. My friend Pam went, though (she and her DH got a room at a bed and breakfast, and made a weekend of it). She brought me back an out-of-print book I'd been looking for - Fine Woodworking on Spindle Turning. She brought it over today, but I haven't had a chance to really look at it yet.

I finished the first holiday stocking, with the exception of duplicate stitching a name and Santa's features. I need to wind the yarn for the other three kits so I can get started on those.

I also worked a little bit on my Lo-Tech Sweat, but not enough to take a new picture yet.

I've got my quilt class project ready to quilt, but haven't started that. I did start working with a jar of quilt pieces I picked up at the show last weekend. It took me a while to figure out what the pieces were supposed to be - they're pansies! I'm using a variety of greens from stash as leaves, and here's what they'll look like. It's a good thing I like applique!

I spent today making new curtains for the kids' rooms. Now that oldest DS has moved out, 6 yo Noah has moved into that bedroom. At one quilt shop we visited the kids wanted to pick out fabric too, so I suggested new curtains, as long as they chose the fabric from the "sale room." I did three sets of curtains today, and still need to get more fabric to do one more set for Ashleigh's room.
