Row Two and Partridges


I finished row two, three more to go.


The two flocks of partridges were in the yard this morning - lots of squawking and running around by some, others were happy to just watch.


Later the large flock were peacefully eating (you can tell that it is cold because they are so round with their feathers puffed out).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Progress and a Shawl


I have sewn one row of blocks for the Double Wedding Ring quilt - 4 more rows to go.


I am also knitting a shawl - the pattern is Spellbound by Boo Knits. Her patterns are my favourite - so easy to knit, with enough variety in the stitch patterns that they never get boring. I am using some hand dyed silk and merino yarn from SweetGeorgia Yarn in Vancouver.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Double Wedding Ring

I have been sewing. I recently cut out the pieces for a double wedding ring lap quilt, using the Go!.
The fabric is from French General.


This must be one of the best Go! dies - the pieces go together so well! I find that some other dies need a bit of fiddling to make work.


It was quick to sew the pieces together for the "blocks". I sure was pleased that I had written a tutorial for this quilt!


Now I am working on sewing all the blocks together (these are just laid out on the floor for placement).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

New Year!

Last year I concentrated on a 365 day photo blog and hardly posted here. This year the plan is to combine the two blogs and post photos of projects I am working on here. Just quick photos, with little writing - trying to keep it simple (really, trying to spend as little time on the computer as possible!).


Yesterday I finished knitting a cowl. The pattern is Appia by Hilary Smith Callis.


 The yarn is so soft - merino, cashmere and silk.


Hand dyed from a dyer in Montreal - Tanis Fiber Arts.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
