Little Presents

Fiona is growing slowly but steadily. She came off the ventilator a few days ago, right after her one month birthday.

I haven't finished quilting her big quilt but she won't be able to use that for a while so I made a little embroidered blanket that can be used as a lovie, burp cloth, and even a doll blanket when she's a little older.  I backed the embroidered cloth with pink flannel and they have it hanging right above her crib.   (The white balance is off on the first photo.  The embroider was done using Moda snow, which is a creamy white.)

I made peanut butter ice cream last week and Jacob couldn't wait for his bowl!!

The Long and Winding Road

Don't keep me waiting here .....

This warp sat in the raddle for a month and today I finally had time to get it wound on.  

Under the breast beam and over the trapeze.

I only had 3 small 1 lb. weights and was looking around for 5 equally weighted objects when I remembered our water emergency last March.  20 oz. water bottles did the trick!!

7 yards wound on.  Heddles counted and ready for threading.  I may have time on Sunday to begin threading, if not it's going to have to wait for another week because next week it's time for a visit to Marie's Funny Farm and then up to Countrywool.  Once we meet up with Claudia it's on to WEBS for what else? More weaving yarn!!!
