FINISHED PIECES TO SHARE…

Finalllllly, cooler weather! and rain to feed my garden! It’s amazing how much more enthused I feel about doing things when the weather is clear, cool and less humid. Even worked in the garden the last few days and discovered hmmmm, an invader! A few weeks ago I found a strange tall plant in amongst some monarda and coneflowers my sister had given me. Wellllll, it grew and grew and we finally recognized it – CORN! Yup, I have a cornstalk in my garden! and a few days ago I discovered ears on the stalk! How exciting! In a week or so maybe we will be able to harvest the cobs and eat them – or at least feed them to the chipmunks! If I had tried to GROW corn it would have died! but this little kernel must have migrated in from the deer corn (well probably with the help of a chipmunk!) and it is now 5 feet high. Anyway, it makes me smile and adds some visual interest to my garden!

And now, a few finished pieces that should get those creative juices flowing:

finished mittens by…

Brenda…
and Diane…

Michelle finished her textured pine tree… and a Deanne Fitzpatrick Wash line…
and her Karla Gerard Blooming Birches… and yup, even I finished a piece – my new Fraktur pattern…

I recently received an email from Barbara in Texas asking if anyone has some long 58 inch arms for a cheticamp frame which they would be willing to sell. Barbara already has the Cheticamp Frame but with the shorter arms and would like to get longer arms. So if you do or if you know of someone who does please contact Barbara at barrett46@aol.com

And now off to the dock with my coffee, neighbours dog and my hooking! Have a great day…

  5. Hi from Nancy These look great. Looks like you did have Christmas in July. I also really like the Gerard birch piece in your show and tell.

    Do you have time for a newbie question? I have some wool I’m going to cut with a rotary cutter as I haven’t access to a real cutter. I assume you cut lengthwise with the selvedge, not across the selvedge… that’s the question.

    I’m still walking around with 5 pairs of glasses until i see the eye Dr. Aug 19, so no long or busy drives yet. I’ll see you at Fibrefest hopefully.

    I’m working on my mini punch – I think like the wrong side better than the fuzzy side. And I have a Maud Lewis from Barbara. But I have to get a frame, the hoop doesn’t work for everything. And a cutter!!!!

    My garden has seen very little rain…the cedars are literally sinking into the ground. Just getting 5-15 minutes of rain here and there. And raining crazy all around me.

    Glad to see you are well and enjoying summer. I was visiting Roberta Russell last week and she showed me a picture of her son/grandson at your place. She said it was beautiful so I am sorry to miss my visit. Cheers Nancy S
