Sort of a ramble today ~ Lots of pictures.
I received my craft swap today! A beautiful scarf hand-spun & dyed & knitted by a graduate student in my department. It’s soooo soft! Did I say it was BEAUTIFUL? Will be getting out my Scottish Thistle pins! In exchange for the scarf, I made the lap quilt in the previous post.
We stopped by Boca (near the train tracks and Truckee River) on the way home from spending the day up near Hobart Mills.
It’s been warming up here in Reno/Sparks…and being upstairs just makes it hotter. This was Leo yesterday (with windows open and fan on) while I was piecing mini quilts.
Using Jeni Baker’s Nordika I made up a bunch of 1.25″ (finished size) HST’s…making a few mini quilts…and I do mean MINI…will be approximately 8″. The three on the left are finished, still working on the right two. Then will need to quilt and bind.
