Progress all around
It's been a busy couple of days and, aside from my weekly dyeing, I'm staying focused on quilting the veterans quilts.
First, I want to thank Lily for providing a nice counter to the propane bill in our mail this week. Isn't that a very cool card? Much better than a gas bill.
Here are the 2 newest veterans quilts. Ribbon meanders on both. Anne is coming over tomorrow to quickly quilt a little picnic quilt and then I'll load the next 2 veterans quilts.
I successfully finished my first loom knitted hat! It's not a masterpiece but it's really warm and will be a nice donation hat and I think this is going to suffice for a donation hat. This yarn is Loops and Treads Tweed Big from Michaels. It's bulky and soft and it was on sale for $3. There are at least 2 more hats in this ball and the second one is underway. That's $1/hat! I can crochet a couple of rows on the wheelchair lap blanket and the I have to take a break and do this for a bit. I'll work on a few hats and then I might try a scarf.
The rest of my day was spent getting fabrics ready for ice dyeing today! I haven't ice dyed in a couple of years so be on the lookout for more ice dyed mandalas in the shop soon. If you need me today I'll be out in the driveway making a big mess with 100 lbs. of ice.

OMG now you are looming too - is there no end to your talents!! I need to scroll back in the blog and see what all I missed while on vacation and no wifi/cell signal at the second place we stayed at I think I hit a record of not opening my computer for 5 days.

If only I were close enough to come watch you do the ice dyeing, I would be there in the driveway with you.

May I ask is that green fabric at the bottom of the bins?

Sounds like you have a busy day planned. That postcard is so pretty!
