A New Quilt Started
While looking through my fabric stash the other day
I was quite happy to discover a large
bag full of a jelly roll-
quilting parlance for precut 2.5 inch (6.4 cm) strips-
of burgundy and teal batiks.
I don't remember buying them,
but I'm more than happy to use them!
I've started a triangle quilt using neutral scraps
and the batik strips.
I think that I will make this quilt bed sized
to go on a spare bed.
I've been happily spinning a super soft Merino
that I dyed last year.
The colors of the wool are rose, lilac,
and a soft plum.
It was quite nice to spin and I just finished Navajo plying it.
I think that this skein will knit up into a lovely hat to wear this winter.
I enjoy sitting on my patio,
taking in the view of the flowers,
On the weaving side of things,
I'm still making progress on my free style fabric.
That is when Chucky isn't asleep on my bench....
The other day the weather was quite nice,
so I took Edna-
my BMW F650GS-
out for a spin.
I decided to head out to the Sweet area,
what an awesome name for a town,
and eat a picnic lunch near the Black Canyon Reservoir.
There was a light wind blowing,
but it was warm and sunny so
it turned out to be a perfect day for lunch outside!
Here's hoping that you have time for fiber/fabric this week,
