The hexagon quilt is zipping right along on the frame. I have only 15" left to do!
I am loving the piecing on the Medallion quilt! I really went ahead of schedule on this and didn't save it for each month like I thought but I am savoring each step and liking what I get!
We stop by this surprise blueberry bush that sprang up in the midst of the crepe myrtle bush.
We have anxiously waited for the berries to ripen and get dark.
Sad to say, this is a wild bush and it does NOT have sweet berries.
They are horribly bitter.
Such a disappointment.
The birds aren't even picking it clean.
Speaking of disappointments, I am spinning some silk hankies that I had dyed several years ago.
I tried knitting right from this but didn't love the experience.
I am remembering why I put this away!
I stick my finger in the middle of the silk square and pull it into a very long narrow strip and then further stretch (attenuate) it for spinning.
I have the blister to show for this work!
It is slow and tortuous work but I will get it finished this time.
The TDF is mountainous terrain this weekend so I am pushing myself to do something extraordinary to reflect this. I will reward myself with some lovely wool when I am finished!
