The Bucket List quilt has returned from Kristin, long arm quilter Extraordinaire … someone you will be hearing more about, someone who can transform even the homeliest quilt into a swan. She really enhanced my piece with a simple meandering pattern and the use of wool batting.
I am feverishly binding it and then, after its bath, I will give it the photo shoot that it now richly deserves. We are raffling this piece for charity (Friends Helping Friends) and I’ll have more info about that tomorrow. I worked on the binding late into the evening and have a very tender finger today, so I took a little break to work on Adeline’s newest dress –
This is a yarn once distributed by Cascade. It is called Bollicine “Dolly” and is, unfortunately, discontinued. The story of my knitting life. If I find a fiber that I really really love, you can bet that it will jump off of the shelves, never to be seen again. Anywhere.
The lanyard was especially fun to make. Well, I can’t linger here – the binding (ouch!) awaits.
