One of the pieces I dyed in @folkfibers indigo class at #quiltcon2017. I stitched it sashiko style and then pulled the threads taught and tied them. I think it would have worked better on muslin or a plain cotton because the terry cloth soaked up too much dye. But it was a great learning experience! Thanks Maura!

Lino printing with @karenlewistextiles. It's satisfying! Thanks for a great class Karen. #quiltcon2017

Another WIP finished. I think I bought this charm pack from @thebluechair? It was a loooong time ago.

Binding help. Or at least supervision.

I'm selling off all my yardage from my shop at $6 a yard, which is wholesale price. Link in profile! #greatfabricdestash

Finally finished my Winterwoods ABC Sampler from 5 years ago 🙄 #winterwoodsabc #posiegetscozy

Finished a new sweater! Pattern is Tramontane but run through @amyherzogdesign's CustomFit program. And it fits SO. WELL. Yarn is Wool-E-Farms Romney. I'm so pleased! #customfit #knitting #knittersofinstagram #tramontane

Today would have been Grandma's 94th birthday. She passed last Feb and I think about her every day. This is my favourite picture of her, because it seems so unlike her. She was such a lady, yet here she is sometime before the war wearing snowshoes and holding a rifle. It makes me smile, sitting here on my desk. Miss you Grandma.

And check out the awesome #onehourbasket that @marycolterarch made for our #chicagomqg swap! I couldn't have ended up with a basket that was more "me"! Thank you!!

Basket I made for the #chicagomqg swap today! I kiiiiinda wanted to keep it, but I got an awesome basket in return! I'll post it tomorrow, when there is good light for pics :) #horween #tanneryrow

Finally finished my BOM. From 2014. 🙄 Blocks are the Summer Sampler Series by @freshlemonsquilts and gorgeous quilting was done by @sparklesaxdesigns! Fabric is an older @dearstellafab (Hadley). #summersamplerseries #quilting #bom

It's cold. ❄🐽
