I have been busy working on my quilt pattern "Colour Charm".
It was time consuming but a lot of fun. I had to relearn Word and Power Point. But I had a very good teacher, my hubby Craig, as well as encouragement from Lorin (whose hand-dyed fabrics I am fortunate to work with).
The pattern is now in Thimble Pleasures fabric store in Chapel Hill, NC, along with "Local Colour Hues" hand-dyed fabrics.
I couldn't resist putting up a picture of my two "sweeties", Mocha and Buddy.
Their collars were so easy to make. You can buy the hardware and directions in some quilt shops and online.
I have been knitting and felting, to get ready for the fall craft fairs. I just finished this nice red wool felted purse. It is still in the drying phase on my kitchen counter. My husband happened to place hot peppers near it (he has been harvesting and drying hot peppers, which is another story altogether).
They look so nice next to each other.
I finally finished my Civil War quilt, one that I started 7 or 8 years ago.
It was a "buck-a- block" from Archangel Fabrics in Raleigh (before they closed).
It was made using "thangles", which made it so easy to get perfect half square triangles.
Thangles are paper templates that come in various sizes, which are directly sewn on and torn away.
