CQG meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

 I almost missed the window of posting about our August Cotton Quilters' Guild meeting. There will be another meeting in just a few days. In addition to having our meeting, this month we held a sew day which, I am happy to report, was a great success. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

Some of the blocks for our current BOM, which I have yet to begin. Oh dear me! I've decided to finish my current BOM (Sugaridoo) before beginning another. Hmm, maybe not the best ...

Never Too Much Yarn from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've been thinking about buying more yarn for months. Did I need more yarn? Well, no. But I wanted more yarn. I went virtual shopping at my favorite online yarn shop Knit Picks. This is the value pack of Lindy Chain in the colorway Solar Flare. I see a new crochet shawl in my future.
I found these fun gradients on sale and just had to plop them into my cart. Stroll Duos.
It is worth it to get these matching tiny cakes to make socks with. One of these will end up being a birthday gift and the ...

Magnolia I ~~ art quilt finish from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I love combining quilting and painting--remember the cotton paintings? There's another here. It's a time-consuming joy that I don't think I'd have been able to appreciate back when I was working. Oddly, I started painting not long before retirement, so everything just sort of fell into place. Well, I've moved on from cotton to magnolias. 

This is my first attempt. I see so many flaws, but I've decided to let them go. If I move on, I can take the lessons with me to the next painting. 

While they are glaring in real life ...

December is kicking it! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I am not keeping up with my crazy life. Here's a quick catch-up of the happenings since our return from Disney, starting with a fam photo (above) of the one day that we wore our WDW shirts, which I made using the Silhouette and heat press.

Two days after Disney, we held the Cotton Quilter's Guild Christmas party. As Madam President, I was in charge one last time, but Margaret (our incoming pres) was generous enough to take care of the food and details. Thanks, Maggie!  

Maggie is on the left here. Thanks girl!

We got back on ...

Peacock Petals Finish! from Becca's Crazy Projects

The last rounds of this beautiful shawl were slow going. Peacock Petals Shawl pattern is free. 
When it was done I put it over my exercise ball so I could get a feel for the resulting fabric. 
I knew it was going to be a monster to block, but wet blocking was the best choice to get that lace to open up.
Here it is blocked. This is why I love wet blocking knit and crochet projects. It lets the lace shine.
This one is all about looks because it is too light and lacy to offer any warmth. 
It ...

Indigo Dyeing Day from Marianne Bos - Quilt Artist

Its been a very long long time since I have blogged but I am just soo excited to tell you what I have been up to today!

A lady (who met me a while ago at a fair) contacted me and asked if I would help her do some Indigo dyeing with her for a quilt she was making.  Like, how fast could I say yes!!!

Anyway today Kay came over to my house and we broke out the indigo and got to the dyeing. She was dyeing linen.

We pleated, folded, wrapped and rubber banded.

It comes out of ...
