I do so wish that my sewing studio was less angled,
so that I could stand back and snap a proper photo
of this quilt.
IT IS FINISHED!!!!....
well, the quilt top is pieced,
I'll say that much!
here's a detail shot of the lower left corner
I showed it to our daughter last weekend
while they were here visiting,
and she very innocently asked if that was a butterfly!
(I'm very happy that she figured it out
before I had to point it out to her.)
This has been a tremendous journey,
and I thank you all for your ongoing support
and lovely comments.
They have helped me so much.
my dye job for today:
I have almost finished embroidering the family tree
on the back of the quilt.
A proper tree has a trunk, branches, and leaves, right?
So now I'm busy dyeing the wood.
Next will be the greenery.
Yesterday I picked up my knitting
and began the second mitt of Purl Soho's
I knit the first one last Spring.
It was a fiddly knit, using the cable needle so often,
so I'm cabling without a cable needle this go round.
It's much faster and loads of fun.
thanks for stopping by
