Theme Thursday

This week's theme is:

Something to Look Forward to

I'm looking forward to finishing this...

Almost There

and here's a close up of it...

Almost There Closer

I have one row of blocks left to add to this and then I can do the border and then figure out how to do the backing and stuffing. I've been working on it on and off for a very long time and now I can feel myself so close to being done and I'm all excited about it.

If anyone is interested it's all hand-pieced. Each block is a different blue fabric. It's a pattern called "Snowballs"

More Quilt

Quilt

Last night (or more acurately very early this morning) I finished the main part of my quilt! All the piecing is finished. I just have the border, backing, and stuffing to figure out. Anyone know how to quilt? Know what I should do next? Here's another picture just 'cuz I'm so gosh darn proud of myself.

Colors

Thread

This is the embroidery floss I'm using for a cross-stitch project. I've always liked the rainbow of colors and finally got around to taking a picture of it today.

And here's one more flower picture:

Gettin' Crafty

KnitBunny.jpg

One of the other gals on the Sweet Binks Yahoo Group linked to this cute little knit bunny pattern and it seemed pretty straightforward so I decided to give it a shot! It isn't exactly perfect, but for a very first try at a toy type thing it's not too bad.

And here's it's cute little butt too!

Knittyheads!

Whoo! That was an incredibly fun day! And normally I take loads of pictures (and of much better quality than these! These aren't my best work!) but there was so much yarn! And so many Knittyheads to talk to! And Woot!!! Yeah, it was a good time. However, there is zero chance I'm going to get names right so if you see yourself, say hey in the comments.

I'm starting with the Yarn Pr0n!

My haul from Webs. A massive cone of cotton for 10 bucks, sock yarn of two varieties I haven't tried before. In the front there's my major splurge on the left (Schaeffer Anne) and one ball each of Rowan Wool Cotton and Felted Tweed. And in the back are two sets of bamboo circulars sizes 0 & 1. I just discovered I'm alergic to my KP needles so something that's not metal for sock knitting made me very happy!

And what I grabbed in Grafton (Classic Yarns right folks?) Some Cascade for punkin's, more sock yarn; there was only the one ball of the colorway I fell in love with, but I have tiny feet so no biggie. It works, I just have to be careful. And in the front are four cute little buttons, sheep, bunny, frog, penguin.

Fun with Kool-Aid!

SunsetDyedYarn.jpg

I've been wanting to try this combination for a while and I finally got off my butt and did it! It started out with a sunset and went from there. I used Wilton's instead of Kool-Aid for the purple and it makes a much nicer purple! The Kool-Aid purple is so grey, I'll definitely be using this purple from now on.

The colors are: Lemonade, Pineapple, Orange, Watermelon Cherry, Wilton's purple, and Ice Blue Raspberry.

Spinning

FirstSpindleRoving.jpg

There was a wool fair down in Bristol today and I went. I figured it'd be a nice small first wool festival for me! There was a "children's tent" where they had drop spindles made with CD's to play with (there was other stuff in there too, but the spindles were the only part I really looked at) They had little bags with a CD drop spindle and some wool (that's the white stuff on the left) for 3 bucks. I finally caved. I've been resisting the whole spinning thing for ages. And I bought the blue roving as something pretty for inspiration. The seller has an etsy store here.

I did mange to resist buying the most adorable baby angora bun. So tiny! So cute!

Purchases

MASWhaulCU.jpg

This would be what I bought at Mass Sheep & Wool this past weekend. That's 4 oz. of merino/tencel fiber in the front from the Sheep Shed. There's a skein of Spunky Eclectic sock yarn. I tend to be nervous about buying yarn on-line that I haven't seen in person, so I was very excited to see it and I bought some 'cuz it's purty! I also bought a real spindle from her. The blue that's on the spindle is from the roving I bought at the RI S&W a week ago. The real spindle works soooo much better than the CD one!
