Ever feel like you’re driving with one wheel in the ditch?
That’s me the last couple weeks. Still moving forward, but dragging just a bit. Little projects are about my speed right now. Or small parts of big projects. Maybe it’s just a good time to get out and walk for a bit?
Saturday was a sweet mail day. I ordered this little set of FQs (above) from Cathy at Wonderous Woven Fabrics. I love them, and they’re going straight into the project box for my Farmer’s Wife blocks. Also in the package were 1 yd cuts of 3 different Moda Crossweaves. Seriously, these are some lovely fabrics. I doubt they’ll be in my stash for long, but that’s okay because I know where to get more. Thanks, Cathy!
I’m starting to stack up a few projects for vacation time. Knitting, of course, but also some embroidery and a quilt binding or two. I always bring too much, but I’m fairly certain the earth will implode if I run out of things to do. I’m just not willing to risk it.
Friday night on my way to the SMQG sew-in, I stopped at the Fiber Gallery and picked up a couple skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light (she says casually, but actually she snatched it from a shelf and cackled wildly). The color is Filigree, which doesn’t begin to describe the delicious olive green and coppery tones, with just a touch of teal highlights. It’s crazy beautiful.
Adding to the excitement is my new knitting bag. It’s too cute for words. Check out Kristen’s bags at Silver’s Shop by ComeToSilver on Etsy.
And you know what? Just looking at this post makes me feel a bit better. Until tomorrow, Happy Trails!!
