As promised, a few days after I took the picture last week of the beginning blossoms of the wisteria outside our kitchen window, I took another one.That wisteris is in full bloom and we've got patches all around our house. So far it looks like none are in awful spots. So perhaps we'll leave them for another year. When they get into a tree we care about, we'll cut it back. Can't really get rid of it since it just moves on to another spot in the yard, or on to a neighbor's yard, so might as well leave it where it is.....for now!
I love the cheerful colors of this sea blue. I was so tired of black. I've got several more black warps planned but I needed this one!! The next color probably will be navy but with an accent in it to give it a bit of punch!
I'm sure each pattern on this quilt has meaning to the maker. I like unusual quilts, ones where the maker made up something and made the whole thing their own. Plus, I just like the Smokies!
This was the last quilt show for awhile. I like to go to them to just look at color, design and inspiration. I may not do alot of quilting myself, but seeing what others do is always inspiring, especially when it's just within an hour of where I live!
I was sewing Thursday on my handwovens and heard a click in the machine. Yeah, then the feed dogs wouldn't work. So my trusty 1130 Bernina had to go to the shop. I just hope that it's an easy repair and not have to be shipped to Chicago for the repair. Thankfully, I do have another sewing machine or I'd be sunk. This time of year I'm doing alot of assembly work on the pieces I weave so can't have a machine go down.
Another thing I"ve been doing this week is skein yarn and wind a couple of warps to paint. Everything seems to take longer than it should but by next week I do hope to have some of the warps painted so that I can weave some vests with the multi colored warps! I'm excited about that!
Until next week, keep weaving!
