As promised last week, here's my sister's quilt top. Her fabric was amazing with roses all over so her quilt is beautiful. She's working on the second quilt top now but I won't see it til I go back up there end of July.
I was looking at other stack n whack quilts and there's a pattern that kind of looks like stars all over the quilt and I think I'll try to get that pattern and see if we can't try to make that when I'm up there in summer. Hmm, guess I'll have to buy more fabric.....
I landed in Knoxville after 10pm and DD arrived to pick me up, right on time!
That all seems like nothing when I heard from a friend who'd flown to China the day before I left Knoxville. She wrote that they were to land in Japan, I guess to refuel on the way. They missed the earthquake by 18 minutes and were diverted to an island somewhere. She doesn't know where. They weren't allowed off the plane for over 30 hours and were a day and a half late for their China tour. She did say they had a wonderful time once the tour got going!!
Coming back to spring was wonderful. I talked to my sister yesterday and she said it was just above freezing and melting some but also snowing. I think we're safe. Yesterday while driving back from the center in Norris I sure was enjoying all the redbuds blooming at the side of the interstate! Looking out my kitchen window it looks like the wisteria is about to open up. I thought DH had gotten it all because it is invasive but I guess one little section evaded him last year!
So what's on the loom here? I'm weaving this pretty combination on my production loom. I almost forgot to take a picture and have to wind more bobbins before I can weave again in a few minutes.
Coming back from a trip like this always results in my taking a couple of days to re acclimate myself to my life here. The time changed while I was gone. When I flew up they were an hour earlier. Saskatchewan doesn't change their time, ever. So coming back here it's 2 hours later than them. That threw me for a bit of a loop. Now I'm back into the swing of things and hope to get this warp off the loom today. I need to wind 3 warps by tomorrow so I can get them onto the looms. I think the next warp for my workhorse Nilus is a peach one with maybe jade for an accent color.
I'm heading down to wind some bobbins so I can weave the 3 vests left on the warp!
