Since April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, I thought it might be time I offered to giveaway a copy of my book! Post a comment to this post before April 15th, and on April 15th, I'll draw a winner, so you can start making a floral quilt in May!
This year, my gardening started indoors, planting seeds in flats, but is now moving outside. Space has been cleared for the peas, and they're now all in the ground. There are two kinds, snow peas and snap peas, and we're looking forward to eating the fruits of my labor in the future. In the meantime, I'll be watching over these, as well as the other babies that will be to small to go outside for a while, like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and some others.
The stack of sewn blocks for the Figs and Ginger quilts is growing, and I get a feeling of satisfaction every time I get to change to the next set of colors!
I've ripped back to my mistake on the Aquitaine Cuffs, fixed the error, and am now ready to move on:
My green Oatmeal Sweater, is moving along, and for those that were wondering what I was going to make with the yarn I'm spinning, this is the project that inspired the wool purchase, but since I'm making it in the green yarn, I'll probably choose a pattern when the yarn is finished. The sleeves have been attached, and I'm now working on the pattern at the bottom of the yoke and working up, so I'm nearing the finish line! (Sorry, this isn't the best picture - the sweater is really green.)
On the weaving front, I've finished the scarf I showed you last time, and have begun to weave the last scarf on the warp. This one will go much quicker, because the treadling pattern is easier, and I'm only using one shuttle!
