This week I've been sorting through some old WIPs, and reorganizing a bit. My Mother in law gave me another bag of goodies from her stash, and I have been integrating it into my stash. Sigh. I need to work faster. Here are some yo-yo's I rescued from an old quilt, and a pretty embroidered towel found at a thrift store.
A very old crochet table runner from my MIL.
A quilt that I made 3 years ago is finally quilted. Just sewing the binding on now. I don't know what took me so darn long to finish. I'm pretty sure the fabric is out of print.
Ta-Da picture coming later.
I'm going on a road trip to visit my daughter tomorrow. I made her a little something for her apartment out of an old pink and white embroidered towel and some fabric scraps. Slapped on one of those yo-yo's , and a silk ribbon for hanging. I miss that girl.
Then I discovered a women's center in town. It's run by volunteers, and they teach quilting, knitting and crochet. It's a nice space with cubbies full of yarn, tables set up with sewing machines, and ladies bent over their work, chatting away. I ended up signing on for an art quilt class. But more important, I can go in every Wednesday morning and Jan is going to help me with my knitting!
Somehow I need to squeeze some knitting practice in between all the quilting and crocheting going on around here.
