I am on schedule for the quilting-I always get excited when I get so far the quilt no longer touches the floor!
During one of our many thunder storms this week, we lost the Dogwood tree! It did not do well this past Spring, and one big branch had died. When Bill cut it up he could see that the center had become hollow and diseased. I feel bad to lose it, though.
I did a bit of sewing and made this peasant dress for Ella! It is made using vintage scraps from my stash. Now that I know the pattern results, I will be making one for Aria, too!
The Larch shawl is off the needles. I didn't enjoy this as much as I had hoped but it is done and that is good. The yarn is from Knitpicks, the merino and silk fingering weight yarn which I dyed in the indigo pot.
I soaked it and blocked it out before my company arrived!
We enjoyed watching the dads and their kids in the pool last night!
The water had cooled off too much for the moms to want a dip but these guys enjoyed an hour in the pool! The water looks like a good yarn color........
Oh, yeah, I am liking the shawl better already!
Ella likes it-she said she was pretty! Yes, I agree! (Will was down napping and missed the fashion show or he would have modeled it, too!)
