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
High Fiber—Getting out of Dodge
Another crazy week! However, the next week should be calmer. More on that later. The BSJ for BS2 is almost finished.
Just the shoulder/sleeve seams and buttons to go. That won't take long, so I'm putting it off for a bit, since BS2 isn't…Continue
This week has been crazy! Besides trips to eye doctor, dentist and Apple store for a new iPad, I made a trip to Shepherd's Bush and Needlepoint Joint in Ogden with friends from Common Threads.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
It has been another crazy week. Besides my spring cleaning, Ellen and I got together to watch Mary Sorensen's hand-appliqué DVD.
I got out my almost-finished block. This is the cardinal design she uses in this wonderful instructional DVD. I took her…Continue
Vintage Stitchers met at Ellen's on Thursday. Rebecca is working on a new appliqué, of course.
Carol brought her finished quilt to sew on binding. Here's the front.…Continue
Get ready for adorableness.
Georgette made these booties using a kit she bought during their recent trip to New Zealand.
We met for Common Threads at Margareth's new place. She has moved in with her fiancée. The house is really nice. …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
This week brought this wonderful book into my life, Tudor Roses (2013 edition) by Alice Starmore.
It's a reworking of the 1998 book of the same name, but with the sweaters…Continue
We drove through the rain this week to reach Vintage Stitchers, which met on Thursday.
We had lots of show-and-tell. Here's Carol's 1600 quilt. Here's the backing.…Continue
Now that the film festival is over, it's time for lots of snow. It's a good time to stay indoors and quilt or knit.
My "wow" for this week has to be Julie's Double Wedding Ring quilt, which she designed for her parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Julie used pillow cases for the photos because of the…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
The official Sundance Film Festival is over for this year.
DH and I still have one volunteer shift to do tonight. After the festival is over, Sundance puts on two free screenings of one or two of the best films. We're working that. Then it's all over for another year. While watching the lobby…Continue
Sundance has taken up a lot of my time this week. We start each shift with a meeting. Here are some of my fellow volunteers at the meeting.
Sunday was especially time-consuming. The last film Sunday night was three hours long, which meant I got home at nearly 2:00 AM! I have seen three…Continue
I'm really, really, trying to finish up some UFOs before starting any new projects. However, with two grandsons coming up on second birthdays, I'm under the gun to make two I-spy quilts.
This week I started cutting out 4.5" squares for both quilts. So far, I have 31 cut for each. I need 25 more. I…Continue
From Wisconsin, we drove 10 hours to Peru, Indiana, just north of Kokomo to visit DS1 and DDIL1.
DS1 and DDIL1 had her grandkids to visit, so it was a full house, with four adults, three kids and four dogs. The kids have grown up a lot since we saw them last. We visited the library in Peru to get…Continue
We had a great Christmas visit in Wisconsin.
It was a white Christmas, and when it wasn't too cold, we had some play time.
The presents were lovely. For example, here's my Fabric Haul, part one. (More coming during a shopping trip to Kokomo/Indianapolis.)…Continue
