Two months into my Mary Tudor cardigan I thought I had the sleeves done, when I discovered a major oopsie while taking this photo:
Do you see it? (Sleeve cap on the left sleeve, to your right in the photo.)
The chart symbols for two of the colors are two different sizes of circles, not very…Continue
The Mary Tudor is coming along.
The first sleeve is finished. I think the sleeve might be too long, but I can't tell until I block it and sew it in. Even though I started at the cuff, it's easy to lengthen or shorten a sleeve. I'll take out one round about where I want to start the cuff by cutting the…Continue
Soren's I-spy quilt arrived, and he is clearly enjoying it!
The top for the quilt for his baby brother (due in August) is almost done. Only the embroidered eye on the horse to do, and then off to the quilter.…Continue
Last week found me quilting again.
All the cutting is done and I've finished 11 of the 24 pieced blocks for BS2's baby quilt. It will have one appliqué block depicting a little horse, to represent the baby' shorthand year, "Year of the Horse." The blocks are from the quilt "Twin Stars" from …Continue
Joanie finished the scarf and James Bond sweater for a friend expecting a baby. She dressed a moose in them and sent them off.
The pattern is the '50s Lounge Jacket from…Continue
Like many of the victims of Henry VIII, I seem to have misplaced my head. I'm having so much fun with the Mary Tudor cardigan, I can't put it down.
Mary Tudor was the sister of Henry VIII and did not lose her head but led an adventurous life and apparently died of natural…Continue
Apologies for the late post. I found myself with my blog post written and no internet when the time came.
We left Tuesday of last week to head to Moab, parts south and lower elevations to spend more than a week in our little trailer. DH really enjoyed his Nook while we were traveling. We…Continue
It's Like the Skies of Roswell! Except this is a different kind of UFO.
My Yei Figures Bag is finished except for adding the beads to the necklaces and bolos.
I decided to line it with some nice quilting fabric.…Continue
It's another week for UFOs. Janet's Sipalu Bag is finished!
Janet started this bag in 2008. She thinks of herself as a quilter, not a knitter, but she has the talent, learns new techniques quickly…Continue
The "Madison Romance" cardigan is finished:
I worked on the button loops at Diane's during Vintage Stitchers. Here is the link to my Ravelry page for the project.
Julie has been making progress on her Ladybug pullover for her granddaughter. She worked on it at Vintage…Continue
I’m finally wearing my Dogwood Blossoms cardigan!
Details of my version of this cardigan are here.
Not to be outdone, Rocky is wearing…Continue
Lynda has finished her Dogwood Blossoms!
She's the first one in our group of four or so to finish it. She wore it to our Common Threads meeting on Thursday. Mine is close to finished (has been for a long time), and I plan to get it done during the Ravellenic Games.
Here is the…Continue
Soren's Green Pastures cardigan is progressing nicely. It should be ready for Christmas or shortly after.
It doesn't look too different from the same stage of Daphne's, although it's a size smaller. …Continue
I can't believe that a week from today will be Christmas Eve!
The realization is sinking in, though. We had Sundance volunteer sign-up on Monday, in preparation for the festival in January. Another reminder was holiday parties have been taking place with greater frequency. It's great to see old friends and relatively new but very special friends as…Continue
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…Continue
Common Threads met on Thursday at Jean's. She has made progress on her blanket made of leftover sock yarn:
While we were there, a couple of moose paid a visit.…Continue
Common Threads met at Julie's on Thursday. Julie had this Halloween quilt on the wall:
We had a rare treat at Vintage Stitchers this week:
Carol picked up this great cross-stitch sampler in a silent auction. It's worked on evenweave. What a lot of work must have gone into it! Here's a closeup:…Continue
We haven't had any snow yet, but fall is definitely in the air. I'm hoping to get my Dogwood Blossoms sweater done in time to wear this winter.
Winter comes early in Northern Utah, especially above 7,000'! We often have a light snowfall in September, so it won't be long now.
After last week's…Continue
