I've had the most fun ever thread painting my snow-dyed table runner!
I decided it needed to be named "whimsy", because the flowers are just that: whimsical.
Since the backside is just white,
You can see a bit more of my thread painting here:
I'm not good at getting these pics collaged, and I'm too lazy to go back into my phone and do it, so please ignore these if they are bothersome to you!
In case you can't tell, I am in love with how this turned out. I learned a LOT and can't wait to tackle the next one!
I've also finished a smallish art quilt, "Stage Two", which deals with my cancer journey over the past year. This is one small segment of it:
Once I get the facing sewn on, I will show more images.
And, of course, I've been knitting! I listen to several knitting podcasts, including "Knitting Pipeline" by Paula Emons-Fuessle. Paula designed the Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl a while back, and I became intrigued by it, so decided to knit it. Here is my Magic Cake before I began:
and here's how my shawl is looking now:
I'm almost to my last color, and then I will begin the ruffle. So, I should be done soon!
I'm also knitting the Tan House Brook Shawl,
designed by Jennifer Lassonde,
Here's how mine is coming along:
I'm knitting this out of Schoppel's Crazy Zauberball,
which is a real kick!
I love the color changes, and as you can see,
this should go well with both jeans and a nice dress-up black.
July was a busy month for us.
We celebrated C's birthday - almost continuously,
but in great detail over the third weekend,
eating any and everything, and everywhere he desired.
It was a lot of fun, I've got to admit!
……and here is how my July looks in photos:
Thanks so much for stopping by.
