I don't know about you, but I love making baby quilts.
They are small so that they sew up fast,
and they make such great gifts.
I just finished a stack of tumbler baby quilts made using vintage
cotton sheets and donated fabric.
They will be heading off to
which is Boise's homeless shelter for women and children.
May they give comfort to someone in need....
I've been happily weaving away,
making progress on my various projects,
and I'm two inches from finishing my overshot table runner!
I feel like doing a happy dance around the loom.
On the spinning side of things,
I just finished spinning four ounces of Merino/nylon roving
that I dyed in lilac, and sunny yellow.
I spun this using a short backward draw
at a ratio of 10.5:1 on a Matchless wheel.
Then I triple plied it with the idea of
using this yarn for socks.
One of my favorite roses, a Queen Elizabeth,
is putting on a lovely show in our backyard.
It's grown to over five feet tall
and it's covered with elegant soft pink roses.
I can see it from my sewing desk,
so it brightens my day.
Here's hoping that you have
time for fiber/fabric today,
