High Fiber––A Quiet Week

As I'm sure was the case with most people, especially in…

High Fiber––Hello, 2021!

I spent my birthday plotting out a new chart for a smaller doll sweater. I've been knitting it this week. I'm already almost to the neck.

It should have…

High Fiber––2020 Goes On...and On! Part II

Just to catch up on the quilting:

I'm working on the swag now, and I'm right at the first corner. In some places the cross-hatching right above the swag needs to be completed. Soon I'll be finishing the outer edges, and it's going faster, now that the book is (mostly) out…

High Fiber—Not Shopping

Somehow, with everything, some hand-quilting got done.
I'm finally to one corner, so it's a little more interesting work. 

I found my sourdough starter had grown a bit, so after…

Mr. Truly Me 74 (real name to be determined when he reaches his new home) is almost ready to go.

High Fiber—Moving Ahead

The past week is just a blur. Looking at my photos helped, however. I remember that I made a hat for Pippa to go with the pajamas, though.

I made the hat so I could have a…

High Fiber—Written and Printed...But Will It Sell?

It was very exciting when the books arrived. I was phone banking for Reclaim Our Vote when they arrived in two boxes that were hard to lift. This is only about half of them. 

I was very nervous when I looked through one copy, but everything seemed to be OK. Then I went to Amazon to check…

High Fiber—Time To Vote

Well, it might have been a quiet week at Lake Wobegon, but not at our place. The biggest event was the arrival of the book. (The phone is for scale. The book is 8.5 X 11".)



I was very happy with the quality of the printing, especially the photos, which I…

High Fiber—Cover Problems

I'm continuing to make progress on the whole-cloth quilt. I'm getting really close to the swag pattern on this side, as you might be able to see.

The Which Came First Shawl is still waiting to be blocked. Why didn't I get it done, you might ask? Well, I need to clean…

High Fiber—Smoked

I really want to finish my whole-cloth quilt this year.
