Oh, I have had a busy, busy week. Son home from college, Thanksgiving, 3 days vacation, SSCS sent off and the best Black shopping weekend I have ever had.
I put the binding on my niece's quilt and finished that project up. I made a doll quilt for the daughter of our adopted family at work. She asked for a baby doll and what is a doll without a doll quilt. These 2 projects with the baby quilt from last week put me 1 over what I had committed to for Finn's finish challenge. Woo hoo! I have also gotten a number of Christmas presents into various stages of completion. Things are going pretty well in the Christmas readiness department.
I just spent the best, first Christmas shopping weekend ever. I totally avoided the stores and took a 3 day beginning weaving class! Finally, I learned how to use my new/old loom
. It was determined in the class that I got a great deal. Every time a tool or gadget was mentioned, it was something I received with my loom. It became a joke. We only found 1, totally optional, item that if I want to use I will have to buy. I came home from the class having learned how to warp, calculate materials, fix the most common errors, different ways to remove projects and how to do 6 different styles of weaving. I need quite a bit of practice to neaten up my selvages and make things more even. There was one rug weaving type I will probably never do again, but all of the others I already have projects swimming around in my head. I'm not sure when I am going to have time to actually
weave, but I really enjoy it. Some day I am going to retire. I will have lots and lots to do.
Oops. I almost forgot my stash report:
