QuiltingSince I've decided to dedicate Sundays only to my Celtic Solstice mystery, I have no progress to show you. Here's a little scrappy eye candy that is on the cutting table being prepped for binding:
I sewed this same pattern twice, I like it so much! Here is the first finish, Payette Lake Sunset:
I finished the scrappy mystery last May at Granny's Attic Quilting in the Pines, and I'm just now getting the binding on!
Cornelia quilted the Baptist Fan design on it for me. I love that quilting design, I'll be asking for it again!
The first month of my "My Year in Temperatures" scarf is finished! It is so fun to look at the stripes and say "Oh, yeah, I remember that day it was 60 degrees then plummeted to below zero!"
I read where someone who is knitting the same pattern braided the yarn ends -- which is a lot easier than working in 724 ends!
The color that is dominant depends on which side of the scarf is "up." this is going to be one loooonnnng scarf, it's 10" long with only one month's temperatures recorded!
Last week I showed you a photo of my Denver Broncos "Rain Down" hat. I finished the Seattle Seahawks hat Thursday night:
If you've never knit with two colors, this is an excellent first colorwork project. Here are my boys, the Denver fan and the Seattle fan, head-to-head:
Etc.New month, new page on the calendar. This is my 2014 Idaho Wilderness Calendar, available from Hiking Idaho. My friends who know I hate to return by the same route I went out will understand the sentiment for this month:
The photos is of the Snake River, taken south of Kuna -- where I lived for the first 8 years of my life.
Tomorrow I will show you my newest BOM project, Bordered Rows by Marti Michell. I can't wait!
