We have a ceramics center here in town and I have always toyed with the idea of joining the guild. My son and I took a day class and it was so much fun, so then I signed up for the five week wheel throwing course. Once I started I knew I would join the guild for sure. I am still such a beginner, but I am enjoying the time I spend in the studio immensely! I want to experiment with every technique I can find, and I’ll be sure and post photos again soon with my progress.
Slyvia over at Flying Parrot Quilts put together a beautiful (epic!) Halloween quilt and after getting so much interest on instagram she decided to host a quilt-a-long. I have been following along each week making my blocks so I too can have an epic Halloween quilt. Be sure to check her blog for each week’s blocks, she has links to the patterns, and tips on sewing them. I’d substituted a few blocks (because I prefer to do paper piecing) but I’ve mostly been keeping with the blocks each week and can’t wait to sew them all together!
I’ve spun a bunch of yarn this Summer, and keep trying to make sure once I cast a project off I get something new onto the needles. I have also been dyeing yarn, and the finished project came from a skein of yarn I dyed some time in June. It was the project I was working on for national knit in public day, an age of brass and steam kerchief (my absolute go-to, I think I’ve made 4 this Summer alone!)
