I just checked the containers on the back patio to see if anything is happening yet.
The 'sowing' project is in the waiting mode today.
However, since I've worked on being more wise with my time I've nearly finished the socks being worked in the picture below. Because they were too short for my stepdaughter they've been reworked...more than once. The toe is being woven together now on one, and the other toe is ready for finishing!
I love how they match the colors in the quilt behind me as I visited
my sister's quilting group in Vancouver.
They are for me, and I knit on them when I'm in a circumstance that
doesn't allow me to count stitches easily.
The bamboo yarn is sooooo soft!
I'd like to display my dear husband's fly-fishing poles, and it would be nice to hang
from them on a wall in the living room which needs some color.
I've chosen batik fabrics to work with,
and I'm embellishing the small quilt with embroidery, buttons,
and fancy stitches on my machine.
You can see that I am certainly a novice, and I am getting wonderful instruction and help from some experienced quilters like my sister and a couple of women from the quilting group in my town.
They meet every 1st and 3rd Tuesday for dinner, a business meeting, and a 'show and tell'.
I can hardly wait to show mine!
It does give you an idea of what's going on in the sewing department over here
in the wilds of Idaho!
