A Wondering We Go

I didn't get as far as I hoped on this tonight. I have it half way. So far so good.

Stitch Me a Top or Two

Getting my quilt top all in sync. I made three for Hands2Hands this year. I am so happy to put my uses to goods for others. I made a Spider web from Bonnie Hunter's blog, and I made a block that looks like a flower that I got off of Missouri Star quilt.

This one I started at quilt retreat and continued at home. Well low and behold, the top was 60 by 120. What the heck, I wasn't making it for any giants out there, so snip, snip, snip! A two for one. Score one extra for H2H.

So without further a due here they are. I only took a shot of the flower one since they are the same.

Weekend Review

What a gorgeous weekend. I cannot believe the tempetures around here. 60's and 70's in Febuary. Have to love that! I really had a very busy crafty weekend. Let's start....

First a knitting finish..... I love this.  The pattern is free; it's called The Honey Cowl. It's so squishy and beautiful.

Next another finish.... A flimsy! I blogged about about this one recently because for something so simply. It has been the bane of my existence. All boo boos fixed. It turn out great. I wanted to leave a couple of big open squares for the parents to be able to add in feet and hand prints. I thought it was a cool idea.
Harry Potter, the project of doom.... Finally... Almost caught up this one. So far so good. Not easy, but I am learning a lot. Mainly how to be more generous with my pieces. Otherwise, rip it out and start again.

Harry's glasses were a little rough, but turned out well.last up... Slow stitching Sunday... Another flower! Only 5 to go...

In Stillness

In Stillness is a wonderful little sweater. Very simple design features just gives a little interest before miles and miles of stockinette the. I' about a third of the way down the front now. Spent some quality time with it during the Super Bowl. Ugh. I can only say what the h... Who was he throwing to anyway?

A finish!

Happy end of January. I can't believe how fast this month has went. I would like a snow day, but it isn't looking to good for the home team.

Anyhoo, I wanted to share my doll quilt swap that I made for my partner, Emily. It turned out so cute. I really enjoyed making it. The theme was favorite book. Well, aren't there too many choices? So, a book quilt it is!

Doesn't it scream curl up with a good book?

Out for Process

So, hum.... a little backed up on fleeces at the moment. I have seven fleeces hanging out that I have started processing, but really, I don;t like the washing and picking part. I decided that I would rather let someone else get these going. Therefore, I put four out to Illinois Fiber Mills. Eleven pounds of lovely fluffy stuff. I have three that are merino-crosses that are just beautiful, and one of the first fleeces that I ever bought that has a canary stain. Not sure if it will come out in the processing or not, but can be dyed a later point. Going to be bit of a pinch, but I am sure well worth it in the long run....

Here are the pictures:

 beige gray

light to dark brownish gray

This considered black, but will most likely be a chocolatey color.
