The Joy of Fabric

January 11, 2009

We FINALLY put the tree away!  Ive had everything else packed up for the past week.  At first, Doug wanted to leave it up for a while because Olive enjoys it so much.  I was able to convince him that it’s not good for her to be doing all that climbing, especially since she pulled out all her stitches.

I set up my cutting table this afternoon and started to pull out appropriate nightie fabric.  I going to make two  or three or maybe four.  I like these the best.  I’ve got two cut out so far.  I might as well go for four.

I finished one sock.  The yarn is great, but the pattern isn’t.  The sock is a little too wide, but not unwearable.  I’m beginning to wonder why I even try these patterns.  I have plenty of my own.  If the yarn they send wasn’t always so nice, I’d stop getting it.  I should be getting my Red Bird  kit some tine this month.  Then, I’ll be happy.

Stop in Catonsville

September 28, 2008

I stopped in Catonsville before I got to Reisterstown.  I needed a needle for class.  I was surprised that I didn’t have every single size and type in existence.  I also bought some yarn.  What can I say?  It’s hot pink and orange.  I’ll post a picture when I get back.  I also went to the fabric shop next door.  They had a lot of Laurel Burch Christmas fabric.  I bought two panels and some yellow.  When I got to the house, I called Doug and had him look for the directions for a wall hanging.  He said he really the fabrics and could I make a bed quilt.  I am not ready for that yet.  I haven’t finished the last one.

It rained all last night and I thought that it was over.  I wanted to get some fabric for new nighties.  I found three and decided to go to Parkville.  When I was about half way there, the skies opened again.  It poured while I was in the store and it was impossible see to drive.  I wanted to go to one more place, but I didn’t.  It wasn’t worth the effort.
