Here is the current snow picture and a typical grey morning. We need some sun however, it has been a light snow winter due to the El Nino. February is the month where we begin to feel that we are on the “downhill slide” to spring. However, it is Michigan and we have had late snow ….
Third attempt at using my handpainted yarn from my yarn of the month club. I am making a linen stitch cowl. So far this seems to the pattern that will not get ripped out! Linen stitch shows off the yarn very well.
Locally, I am facilitating a Zentangle Club at our local Arts Council with the support of our local CZT. I am pretty excited and have plans for challenges and projects! I think we will start out with a tangled name tag.
Made a taggie blanket for my niece’s baby due this month. I used a block I tested for Quiltmaker 100 block. I had left over minkee, silky and rough tags and backed it with flannel. I added batting and quilted it. It is made by using this tutorial as inspiration. It measures 18×18. I like using a pieced orphan block and making it a real quilt. It is intended to be a sensory toy for a newborn so the imperfections bother me less.
This quilt will be off the frame today. It is amazing in color, design and it is made by a lady in her 80’s. So inspiring! I wanna be just like her sharp, quilting and being independent.
