It's always good to be invited to the river and it's especially good when it's designated as Craft Week! It was a beautiful drive here yesterday because all the Bradford Pear trees are in full bloom.
As soon as I got here we went outside with Ginger and she proceeded to find something rotten to roll in so her Craft Week kicked off with a bath.
We eventually made it to her sewing room where I started on the animal print batik quilt for my SIL. It's going to be a smaller version of my Indonesian Batik quilt. Today I will start by cutting the the sashing. By the time I finished the diamonds I knew I had spent too much time on my feet so I took a break at this point and started crocheting a hat.
Anne is working on some yoga bags for friends.
Cocktail hour was beautiful, as always.
After dinner I finished up this hat. The yarn was one skein that I bought to try out for a scarf for my Mom. It didn't work for that so I out the one skein in my hat yarn bag. The yarn is Lion Brand Hometown and it's a 6 - super bulky. This pattern was designed for this yarn and there was very little left over from 1 ball. In the end, this hat is a kids hat. It's quite small but it's done! I probably wouldn't work with this yarn, or any bulky 6, again. It's a perfectly fine and soft yarn. I just don't like handling yarn this bulky.
Today I'll focus on the sashing for the animal print quilt and maybe start crocheting a chemo hat.
