This is a Shaker Chimney Cupboard,
designed by Michael Pekovich,
and created by my husband, Marshall.
Marshall used beautiful cherry and maple wood
with striking grain lines to create this piece.
He hand turned the cherry wood
knobs on his lathe.
It is now finished and in our house!
Do you notice the hand cut dovetail joints?
I love the design,
and it looks great by our front door
where we get to see it first thing when we get home.
We now have a great storage area for
our hand spun/knit hats that we love so much.
I've been happily sewing each day
on the donation baby quilts.
I machine quilted them,
and sewed the bindings on each one.
May they bring comfort
and warmth to someone in need.
I have another round of scarves on
my Schacht Baby Wolf loom.
I think that these will probably be the last scarves
that I weave this winter.
The warp is a random assortment
of Tencel and bamboo yarns
in silver, white, and sunny yellow.
The weft is a hand dyed wool yarn that ranges from taupe,
to silver, to charcoal gray.
The weave structure is a straight 2/2 twill.
After finishing the baby quilts,
I realized that I really wanted to make
a scrap basket quilt.
Sometimes a pattern just calls out to you,
I'm using the Liberated String Basket design,
by Gwen Marston,
that is taken from her book,
Liberated String Quilts.
The scraps are primarily peach
and a soft periwinkle blue.
I decided to do a running stitch
to applique the handles to the background fabric.
I'm having a lot of fun with this quilt!
