November - right now
lots of activity going on in my studio - some things being finished, some things being started, and some other things in the midst
Above is a lap quilt I made for DH - the traditional Ocean Waves pattern just a bit updated on the edges - to remind him of our years living on the sea. The fabrics are a mixture of new and old - some Androsia from the Bahamas, some Japanese yukata fabric, and who knows what else
I am going through the design stage of a new quilt - thinking, sketching, playing with fabrics - we'll see what happens.......
Just ready to cast on a new shawlette from a pattern called To Eyre - it is designed from the shawls in the Jane Eyre movie that I just recently saw on DVD. I fell in love with the shawls when I saw them and of course, was able to find a wonderful pattern on Ravelry.
My white poinsettia is turning white on the top leaves just in time for the holidays and one of my Christmas cacti is covered in buds. And can you believe it, one of my azalea plants is blooming right now - too strange - normally they don't bloom until February.
Getting ready for Thanksgiving - turkey and all that!!!!
Thanks for looking and have a great week,
