Fussy Cutting - what is it....

On the Camp Loopy sewing chat group there was a question about the fussy cutting I did in my bird quilt.  So I decided to snap some quick photos to try to explain what it is and why I used it. 485 more words

Fresh from the garden

My little garden plot, where once again today I pulled out tons of weeds – pigweed is my nemesis – is doing pretty well.  I’m waiting for that first ripe tomatoe – mine are all green and it will be a while before they ripen, but in the meantime I brought some back from my Dad’s and my sister’s gardens – he has red ones and she had some yellow ones to give me.  195 more words

Camp Loopy Projects

Here’s my Camp Loopy 3 knit project – Zigzagatory.  This yarn started out making little stripes where I cast on at one edge.  Then, as I increased stitches, it became wider looking stripes with more cream in between and the cream color mostly on the top edge, and now, where I have the widest portion, it’s starting to pool.  236 more words

Indecision, indecision

The yarn I got for my Camp Loopy final knitting project just was not thrilling me.  It’s pretty yarn but it has a more rustic texture look to it than I really wanted in the project I had picked.  671 more words
