Here’s the finished Lone Star baby quilt woven using the 7″ Quilt Weaver Diamond loom. I also used the 14″ triangle and square looms to finish this blanket. The white row inside the green border is a row of double crochet and the white edging is a row of reverse single crochet, which forms a [...]

Great grandson’s are so appreciative of good cooking! But he still had room for ice cream & birthday cake!
Grandmother’s 100th birthday is today. Randy’s cousin and his family joined us in celebrating with her. Friday the rest of the family comes up and we’ll celebrate some more. Her church gave her a party after services last Sunday, too, and she got her birthday card from the Prez and Mrs. Bush. She wasn’t as [...]
This doesn’t look like a diamond, but that’s because it was laying over my knee so you’re getting a distorted view. I wanted to show the texture of it. You can see at the bottom where the strands untwisted that it’s cabled of two different yarns. Of course, I don’t have the band with me [...]
We worked all morning and late this afternoon Randy asked if I wanted to go with him to get water. We get water from a spring so we don’t have to drink this poisoned chlorinated stuff the state forced on us. It was so pretty. The creek is perfectly clear, the sky perfectly blue, the [...]
Robin wouldn’t model the new tam but he didn’t object to sharing my chair with it. I tried taking my own photo (Randy’s gone for the evening) but… oh well! :hehe: I used the Tiny diamond and some Red Heart. I did crochet the band. I think it’s kind of cute.
It’s pretty and I like the yarn but I’m not entirely satisfied with it. The star buckles a bit in the center. I haven’t decided if it’s the bulky yarn or something else. One of our customers is making a double star quilt using some fine llama and hers appears to be laying nicely flat, [...]
I was asked to post a progress picture. As you can see, I really have made some progress in spite of other excitments. I have just 14 squares to weave to finish the last side of the border. I think I might do a single row of reverse sc to finish, depending on what it [...]
Latest: The Official Report is that is is NOT our fire, after all. Now we get to feel guilty for being relived that it’s in someone elses town. It’s French Gulch and they are reportedly evacuating the town, which is not hard to believe as F.G. strings along a narrow canyon. The ash is still [...]
We’re not getting a lot of smoke from this fire but it’s pretty awful in the valley. Poppa says it isn’t bad out in Happy Valley, he has a little elevation out there, about 1000′ I think. The mountains pretty well keep it away from us, but those people must really be suffering. Even if [...]
