Update on what I've been doing

The Mukilteo Quilt Guild is a very nice group of people, the lecture went well, and there is lots of interest in future classes, so we'll see what can be scheduled.

My self portrait is now quilted and has a bit of lacy embellishment, but still needs binding and a sleeve to be ready for the Stray Threads quilt show, along with finishing up a couple other little quilts. All need to be finished this week, so they can be turned in Thursday evening, and I had planned to work this weekend, but now we're off to work on moving in our renovated home, along with some yard work there.

Last week I managed another weaving sample with my handspun yarn, and after a bit of testing with different yarns, I settled on the blue tweedy one that I spun from a colorful, funky batt of wool and other fibers.

I really love the way it came out!

Weaving looks great-you can see the drape in the pic, too. The quilt is excellent-hope you have fun with the movin' in!
