Sewing Room Re-Do

When I started quilting, my sewing room started evolving.  Now it’s evolved to a whole new level.  I put in an order for some Tracey’s Tables about 3 weeks ago and they were delivered on Saturday.  I couldn’t be happier. I ended up getting the Quilter’s Workstation.  I love to work in an L and [&hellip…

That’s a Wrap

Well… Julie and I had a fabulous time at the WI Quilt Expo and the WI Sheep and Wool.  We ended up staying up there and that really helped on not being nearly as worn out.  Although, make no mistake, after all the classes lectures, and shopping… we were still worn out. The quilts were [&hellip…

Some Spinning

This lovely yarn was from 4 ounces of roving that was purchased back at the WI Sheep and Wool. This is from River’s Edge Fiber Arts.  It was much brighter before setting the twist.  The bleeding was bad with this one.  I should’ve gotten the vinegar out earlier.  I’m not sure on the size as [&hellip…

Fall Spinning

I couldn’t resist spinning up this lovely batt – it’s about 24 to 26 wpi and will be a 2 ply for some socks. It’s called Acorn – perfect for Fall spinning and knitting.  Of course all these side projects are not helping with my UFO knit down that my guild is doing.  The frogged [&hellip…
