Sorting from Terificreations's Weblog

This whole impractical color wheel is causing me to change the way thread gets stored: rather than by fiber, it’s by color. Whaaaaa? Yeah. Years ago I spent an afternoon stitching with Elizabeth Rosenberg in her quilt studio. She sorted her thread by color rather than fiber, it befuddled me a bit, because isn’t fiber… Continue reading Sorting

Connect: color from Terificreations's Weblog

A while back Wednesday mornings meant heading to a local coffee shop for knitting and chatting. This hardcore machine quilter loved the company, and getting out of the house once a week was priceless. It was a way of connecting with friends, and with some handwork, knitting and crocheting. Attending guild meetings, sharing quilt stories, … Continue reading Connect: color
