My husband, Marshall, just finished carving a spoon out of Bradford pear wood. In the evenings, he sits and carves while I knit or hand stitch. The spoon has a lovely, smooth feel to it with an interesting grain pattern on the handle.
I decided to remake a Sunshine and Shadow quilt that I had originally made in 1988 while we were stationed in Southern California. The fabrics are various calico prints that were cotton and cotton/polyester blends (ick).
This is my 2015 version made with batiks and solid cotton fabrics. I'm hand quilting it now with pearl cotton thread size 8.
I got a huge thumbs up from my youngest son, Seb, who loved the bright colors. How cool is that?
The other day I was out hiking with my husband and two dogs. We were on one of our favorite trails where we can let Sam, our huge golden retriever, run off leash.
And boy, can he run and run. It was a sunny, warm day so it was just awesome being outside seeing the wonderful Idaho scenery.
We saw 20-30 mule deer and I was able to get a photo before they took off running.
Here's hoping that you have time for fabric/fiber today,
