Knitting

 Drachenfels is a sweet pattern and a nice size found on Ravelry. I followed the pattern but sort free wheeled with some of the striping. It looks like fall!  I used a lot of leftover fingering yarn from other projects to complete. Then I got all excited and did some retail therapy (see below).

 I can't remember this pattern, also on Ravelry, again using leftovers.

 Ouch, I bought a little yarn. The real superstar here is.....
.........this one! Flourescent pink Madeline Tosh Merino Light. Wow, I love this color.
Now I have to get busy.

I've been on a real knitting jag for several weeks, I just don't seem to have taken any pictures of the knitting. Also I can't seem to put the water colors away to make space for the sewing machine. Its a problem. Like I need another studio problem. WHICH. WILL. BE. NEVER.
I love to paint, I kind of don't even care what it is, but once I start I can't stop. Somehow I need to explore putting some water color imagery onto fabric. I'll work on that.

Trailer Time


 This is by far the largest stamp I've ever created. Its about 5" x 7"!!! I made it so I could stamp some appliques for some dish towels for my sister who owns a vintage trailer and camps all the time with it, and I forgot to take pictures of the finished project!! Oh well. I fused them onto some dish towels and then free motion quilted all the black parts.
