Winter Scrap Quilt Progress Report

The top is Done and I.Love.It.  =)
I made it bigger then I first planned.
Now it will fit perfectly on the back of my Ektorp loveseat.

Next up:
Quilt (or Tie?)

A Saturday of Simple Patchwork

I started piecing the blocks for a new Quilt this week and continued working on them today.  

It was such a lovely morning ... the purr of my sewing machine, Abigail's chatter while she pressed my seams (am I a lucky mama!), and Pandora in the background.

I am SOOOOOO enjoying my new cutting table (thank you Ikea!!!) and working from my stash.  =) 

2011 was the Year of Crochet.  Maybe 2012 will be the Year of Quilt-Making?!

Stress-Free Blogging ...

(or why I've been AWOL from Blog Land for the past two months!)

I did a yarn dyeing class in my hometown of Hudsonville, MI in November.

That lead to two (maybe THREE) classes in January and February .. =) =) =)

And ...
My very first Yarnie Party at Painted Trillium Yarns !!!!!
It is next Friday night from 7-11pm.

I've been dyeing yarn ... lots AND lots of yarn.
This is just one of FIVE tubs. 
Last count was 160 skeins ... I need to do another 40-50 tomorrow and Monday.

This re-blooming/re-birth of my yarn dyeing business took my by surprise but it's been lots of fun.  
I decided that a new name, new colorways and new labels were a must.

So the stress-free part of this post is that I've decided to do photo-only blog for 2012.
Ok, fine!  Maybe a "few" words.  =)

Happy 2012 to all my Dear Readers ... Love ya!
