High Fiber—Coming Down the Home Stretch

The big news on the fiber front this week is my Dogwood Blossoms. The steeks are done.

In the photo, you can just see the front is cut open. The armscye steeks are also cut. I used my sewing machine to sew on each side of the cutting line before I took the scissors to it. I'm getting pretty…

High Fiber—Back to Something For Me!

You may remember this quilt I was making for Daphne.

I got it back from Julie, the professional quilter (Julie Thorum, thorum@xmission.com), and just finished sewing on the binding. It's an I Spy quilt. Each square has a picture of something she can identify and name. Julie quilted it…
