I've finished spinning the pastel BFL and it was a lot of fun to spin. I think that now that the weather is warming up I need to get my dye supplies out soon and do some dyeing on my back patio.
The other day I was out cycling on my bike and noticed this unusual planter in someone's front yard. Their next door neighbor is trying to sell their house, so I'm not sure how excited they are about having a commode in the front yard of the house next door, but I thought that it would make you laugh.
The flowering trees are putting on a wondrous show here in Boise, so I stopped cycling long enough to take this photo. Aren't they simply lovely?
This week I've created a few postcards to mail out and it's reaffirmed my belief that small quilts are just fun to create. I pulled out my scrap boxes and started sewing to create this one.
The others haven't arrived at their destinations yet, so I'll have to wait to share those. I finished my pink improv sampler quilt and I can't tell you how happy I am to see it on my studio wall :-)
I am now spinning more BFL deliciousness, this time in a balsam colorway by Frabjous Fibers, which is now being carried by a local yarn shop. Hurrah for that! Usually I have to mail order the fiber that I want to spin. I can't tell you how nice it is to be able to feel the wool and see it before buying!!
Speaking of small projects that allow you to play-I created a small quilt for our front door that adds a dash of color. I added tiny prairie points in various colors just for the fun of it.
Here's hoping that you have time for fabric/fiber today,
