Almost a month has gone by since I blogged, I am still making things - life is good! Picture heavy post.
I machine quilted a quilt top that my Mother pieced -
The pattern is Emma by Bella Moon. It is a great fat quarter pattern.
This quilt is a fraternal twin to a quilt I made earlier in the summer (these will be gifts).
I have a few knitting finishes -
and a bulky cowl - this is the Tanis Fibre Arts Year in Colour project for September.
I also started spinning again (I took a month off after the Tour de Fleece) -
This is Polwarth wool that I spun lace weight.
It is from this wool top that I gradient dyed.
Now I am working on a blended yarn -
I started with Merino wool that I dyed shades of pink, purple, red and black, natural Gotland Grey wool and black silk.
I blended it on a blending board.
The above photo is of the rolags (the cinnamon bun shaped fibre), spun yarn and knitted sample.
Fall brings a bounty from the garden, and I have been doing some preserving - yum!

Lots of Canada Geese in the field behind our home - a sure sign of fall too-
This was the best photo I managed to take of the lunar eclipse on Sunday- it was a perfect evening to watch it.
