Since my last post was sew long, I cut it short, but I did want to show you what else I have been doing on my blog hiatus. I have been washing and ironing fabric collected almost over a year. I had not been able to wash it because it was so wet here last fall and winter and my washer drains outside here. I only washed what we needed. So here is a picture of all my fabric washed an ironed over the last 9-10 months. Actually there has
been some already put away, probably close to a fourth of what you see here. Now this has also found a home, but my new room is fast running out of space. It already has on books.
And I have a new passion. I stopped at a new to me quilt/needlework shop close to me. And she had several temari balls in there. Just so happens the town has a League of the Arts and they were giving a class in it for $5! I have long been interested in this craft, (had 5 or 6 books on it for years), I guess because they are so pretty and they are geometric. Anyway, I took the class and finished my ball which was Cranes and Bamboo.
It’s not perfect and the cranes look a little anemic, but it is my first try and I don’t think it looks too bad. I also ran out of thread for the bamboo. (They had kits made up.) I have my threads for my next two- I think I am hooked!
Next time quilts, I promise, but first I have a DJ retreat this next week. So it will be after that. I will probably start with Dear Jane®, the quilt that literally changed my life.
Sew Having Fun,
