Catching Up


I did finish the tablerunner; sewing the binding on while sitting in bed......Nyki had already gone to sleep-I didn't even disturb her as I slid out of bed to take the picture!

In the morning I pulled out the dresser that was here and organized a cutting/ironing center that will double as the wool prep area..........it is nice to have this area to work at! I caught Nyki redhanded at the attempted murder of my styrofoam head! She wasn't the least bit penitent! I spun up 2 skeins of the superwash/nylon I blended on the drumcarder-I am pleased with the results and will now dye up the skeins.........I am thinking chocolate covered cherries kind of colors....

Back in the sewing room , I serged up a pair of capris for myself. This fabric is a light-weight kettle cloth that is at least 40 years old.........I am enjoying the challenge of stash busting! I finally got to the finishing work for the two pair of socks with the striped yarn from KnitPicks (Felici in Putty and Meridian). And when I began the third pair of socks I had a 'what if ?' thought. They need their own post to see what I did!

So pleasurable to yield a tiny needle for this embroidery.   It is in an eight inch hoop for scale.   I did all of the coneflowers first, as...
