Rocky's Sheep Sweater is finished.
I used the same pattern as the one I made for him previously, only with a different stranded pattern, using this time the sheep motif from "The March of the…Continue
Wasatch & Wool just opened up near me, about five minutes by car.
It's the first yarn shop in Park City in many years that wasn't in a corner of another store. We have had a Michael's for several years, but if you wanted…Continue
It was a great week for quilting. Common Threads met at Janet's, and we had a variety of projects.
Ellen is working on the second block for her Home Sweet Home quilt. She isn't sure if she'll make all…Continue
The first snowblowers of the season were heard Saturday morning.
Vintage Stitchers met on Thursday at Diane's. Carol brought her Kaffe Fassett quilt, ready for border:…Continue
It might have been a hare-brained scheme to make four bunnies, but I finished the third boy bunny, this one for Johan.
Here's what he looks like without his little kimono. He's wearing garter-stitch booties and soaker, actually knitted as part of the legs and body.…
I finished the second boy bunny, this one for Soren.
He and Zachy's bunny have the same attire, although the bunnies look very different, so we won't get them mixed up at Christmas. Daphne's bunny is wearing Mary Janes, actually knitted as her feet. The two boy bunnies get Nikes (also…
The girl bunny is finished, although I have plans for a sweater to go over her sun dressContinue
Common Threads met at Ginny's. Julie is almost done with her Girl Fox from Little Cotton Rabbits:
She has also finished the head of the elephant.
I started my first project from this designer (the…
Ta-da! Mr. F. Is finished and waiting for his clothes.
I have one sleeve of his jammies (Union suit?) almost finished, but I've been hand-quilting, as you will see below.
However, while we're on knitting, I thought you would enjoy seeing Joanie's seal mum and…
In place of my regular blog post this week, I decided to hold sort of a celebration of life for my dear friend, who passed away early Thursday after a prolonged illness.
I invited a few people to share their memories of Susan. If you have memories to share, you can add them in…Continue
My Mr. F. is moving along.
He's still headless, but at least he has arms now. They look rather flabby, though. I need to take him to Silver Sneakers with me so he can lift some weights.
Mr. F. has been a major UFO since 2009, when I got two arms and one leg done (almost) and quit. Now he's…
The quilt for Habitat for Humanity's Overall Ball fundraiser is coming along. I finished putting the blocks together with sashing, corner stones and a border.
This involved a consult with Janet and another one with Julie, as we were trying to get by with fabrics on hand. I was scrambling, but…
Back to the question: A few months ago we discovered we had moths, originating in our Navajo rugs in the storeroom. While I was sad about…Continue
The main activity for this week was my "Reflections of Butterflies in Lemonade" quilt top.
I started this quilt on Tuesday. It's the Disappearing Hourglass block from Missouri Star's Quilt Block magazine, the latest issue. There's also a video of how to make it on…
I had several irons in the fire this week, but the big news is, I'm coming down the home stretch on my Delectable Pathways quilt.
I got the top pretty much put together yesterday. I still have some appliqué to do on leaves that cross over seams. There are also two seams to sew, left…Continue
Chugging away on the Delectable Pathways quilt:
This is the last of three panels, and I only have two more flowers left to appliqué.
The Puyallup Socks are done and on my feet:…Continue
As you know, our trip to Oregon was necessitated by the arrival of our fifth grandchild and third grandson.
It gave us an excuse to visit our younger son and his family. Soren (now a big brother) especially enjoyed feeding dog kibble to the pups. (He also fed some to…Continue
Last week, we had a look at some of my older knitting projects. This week I'm going to show you some of my quilting projects from yesteryear, before I started my blog. Let's start with my first quilt ever...sort of:…Continue
While I'm on vacation, I thought I would report on some knitting projects I've made over the years, before I started my blog. For example, this is the first sweater I made for Charlie (my DH).
As long as I've known him, he's been an avid skier. (It's funny; he didn't look like this when I married him. He's still pretty cute,…Continue
