Setting the Pace

The Cormo handspun yarn was knit into this Nurmilintu shawl.
It looks pretty on the mannequin but when I tried it on, it was a bit too short.
I pulled out the bind-off stitches and continued on-I have this much yarn left to add on;  it should be just right! 
I pulled out the pieces for the Medallion quilt which are called piano keys and did a bit of piecing. 
The pieces will look nice sewn together! 
I moved my mosaic stepping stones over by the new bird feeder-I like the invitation! 
The hibiscus which was knocked back by the frost last winter, has finally come to life enough to bloom! 
JD is a stray we found so many years ago but she has always been aloof from people including us!

This treasure trove of goods is a generous gift from a blog friend!

  1. Back home, over the virus, and settled in -- that's what this post says about you -- this is your normal eclectic array of projects and show-and-tells! Glad to see it. :)

  2. Oh, I love your soap bombs! Feel like i need a good foot soak! :)

  3. Oh lots of good things in this post. You are so good. I have been known to quickly donate any project that doesn't fit post bind off and not bother fixing it. Your medallion quilt is intriguing. I can't wait to see it grow.


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!
