When You Can't Felt, Quilt

It's been a very long week of trying not to add to my back injury. Since I can't felt, in an attempt to sit still I got out a cathedral window quilt that has been sitting in the closet for ages. It has about a zillion tiny stitches to go unless it becomes a lap robe instead of a queen size, which was my original intention. The fabrics are lovely batiks which are eye candy. It isn't technically a quilt because there is no batting, but with all of the layers of fabric it is quite heavy and doesn't need any.

Down For the Count

On Monday of this week I hurt my back. It hurts to sit, it hurts to stand, it hurts to breathe. I can't even get into my wool stash to dream! Oh well, tomorrow's another day, Scarlett.

Here are a couple of photos of my booth at The Farm Day event last weekend in Berlin, Maryland. There were sheep shearers, Appalachian cloggers with a jug band parade, weavers, spinners, blacksmiths, potters, rug hookers, pony rides, bunnies and alpacas to pet, and much more. A good time was had by all. My Mom's rug hooking group graciously allowed me to share their space, so I combined a family visit with an event. Everyone was caught a bit by surprise at how cold it was!
