Still feeling pretty bad about being such a lazy blogger. So many opportunities come along to provide fun topics to write about, but pure laziness keeps me from following through. I am ashamed.
Yesterday I went to Labor Of Love Yarn Shop in Romeo. Love that store. Very friendly owners & customers. Took a pattern with me that I purchased while in NYC, and found some Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino in a rather bright almost cornflower blue. I imagine it would look nice with a pair of jeans, a white T, and some silver jewelry. Hopefully the vision I have will actually become the sweater I intend it to be. I had no problem casting on, but by the third row I had already goofed it up and frogged it. Then I moped and pouted, and questioned WHY I felt I needed to be a knitter. But this yarn is yummy.....THAT is why I must knit!
Today Nancy, Faye and I traveled to South Lyon to one of our favorite quilt shops, Lake St. Mercantile. I never really got past the entrance of the store. I was immediately smitten with the Simpson & Minick line Flag Day Farm. I spent more than an hour sorting and arranging fabrics to make my version of a quilt in the Red Wagon book Every Seven Years.
There are several very good applique quilts in the Red Wagon book..........the cover quilt is a nice example.....
I need to go fondle my fabric.......so I'm outta here!
