Book Notes

In the Blethering Room

I finished a wool applique wall hanging of cardinals in a tree with snow…gift from friends at the Knitting Pipeline Maine Retreat 2016 and purchased at Camp Wool in Kennebunk. Chattering Cardinals.

Finished piecing a quilt from a kit I bought on Craftsy. Tailor’s Tack Checkerboard. Sent it to Nancy for quilting. (Aizome on Ravelry. GraceandPeaceQuilting on Instagram).
Pieced top of quilt. The quilting will add the magic.

Working on my Maker’s Quilt. Video coming up on You Tube.
