Quilt With Us

Vintage Stitchers

Yesterday we had the regular scheduled meeting of Vintage Stitchers. We met at Janet's house. Here's Janet with her current project:





Janet is showing off a copy of Hop To It by Edyta Sitar, which most of us have bought. I'm going to use the bunny block for a baby quilt.

Janet is working on a quilt for her daughter's friend. The friend brought all her old T-shirts to Janet, and took an active part in selecting fabrics from… Continue

A Long Post for a Fantastic Class!

I can't believe what a weekend it was! Knitting teacher and musician Lucille Reilly came in Thursday, driving all the way from the Denver area. I awaited her arrival at the home of my friend Barbara (one of several Barbaras, actually, who are my friends). Barbara has a nice guest room with a queen-size bed, and she had agreed to let Lucille stay with her, which gave Barb some extra live-in help on her scarf if she needed it. She was the star pupil, though, so didn't need it, although she had a… Continue

Gnomes and Fairies!

Here's my current now-active project (once a UFO), the Oregon Socks:





My little friend has been with me for years, and he wanted to help me display my Oregon socks. He became faded a few years ago, so I used paint to touch him up. You can see how grateful he is! These socks are based on Ariel Barton's Cable net socks from Knitty, which you can view… Continue

Homeward Bound

As you read this, we are on the road somewhere between Kimball, Nebraska, and Kimball Junction, where I-80 meets Hwy 224, which leads to Park City. In other words, we'll be home soon!

What have we been doing since my last blog post? We left the KOA near Mishawaka, IN, and our DS the elder and DIL, but not before Rocky learned to play tetherball:





We stopped twice in Iowa, once in the area near Amana, to see the Amana villages,… Continue

Boomerang

It has been a great trip, and soon we will be starting on the return trip, which won't take as long. The trip from Utah to Indiana by way of Montana, South Dakota and Wisconsin was like going from A to B by way of C. Our trip home beginning Friday morning will be from B back to A, so we shouldn't take as long. It has been a great trip. The best part was the engagement of our DD (Karen) to one of the greatest guys we know (David). Seeing them happy together is a delight. Here's what they look… Continue

Catching Up...

I've been working with my new camera, taking photos of my completed quilts. It's fun to see the quilts show up so much like real life. Here's what my bedroom looks like right now. The quilt on the bed is a replica of the quilt that was on my bed when I was growing up in Jamaica Plain, MA. At least, it's close to what I remember the quilt to look like. I didn't learn until years later that the fabrics were from the '30s, so the fabrics at least were already a few years old at the… Continue

Shear Terror!

The clouds parted, and the gentle sunlight spread over the little pastures and driveway of my friend Linda's alpaca farm. The fluffy heads were erect, like glass-headed pins stuck into round, fuzzy pin cushions, as the animals gazed with curiosity at the row of cars, parked diagonally, like the parking lot of a strip mall. What were so many humans doing, coming to visit Linda? Little did they know...



Monday was shearing day for the fluffy alpacas at Linda's. It had been scheduled for… Continue

Home Sweet Home

We had a great trip to Reno. We left Thursday morning and arrived there in the evening. The dogs were good on the trip. Rocky sat in his car seat next to Daddy, and our friend Barbara and I took the back seat with Sunny in the middle. The kitty always rides in the trailer. Here's Rocky in his car seat:





The weather was cool, and we had some rain, but it wasn't too bad. Our RV campground was right across the street from the Far West Ski… Continue

Spin Cycle...

No, I'm not doing laundry. I've found one of my activities I can still do with the cast: spinning! No, not the kind of spinning they do at the gym! This kind:

It was a nice day, so I took the wheel out on the front deck, so Rocky and Sunny could have some company while they enjoyed the sunshine. I have tried to knit, but just can't manage it with my thumb in… Continue

Yaaaaay! Back to Quilting!

Thanks, Connecting Threads, for the Quilting Community! The KP Knitting Community has had me obsessed with knitting, and I have been missing my quilting!

Eileen's Quilt

Here's a photo of a quilt I gave my SIL for Christmas. It's a lap quilt, and I had a local machine quilter quilt it for… Continue
