It's been a very busy week. The show in Sanford was wonderful. It was great to see Faye (Carolina Stitcher) and Judy (Jaytee's Patchwork Place) again as well as other non-bloggy friends that I have met over the past 3 years.
Monday and Tuesday found me in the dye pots again. Today I was supposed to be dyeing wool again but it was just too rainy and cold to be hauling water from the garden spigot into the Wool Barn and out again. So I spent the day sewing a new Spring sample. It was nice getting behind the sewing machine again.
These are 24 paper-pieced carrots as part of a cotton pieced/wool appliqued wall hanging designed by Cheri Payne called tada .... Twenty Four Carrots. Finished top coming soon ......
Yesterday I finally was allowed to babysit Sweet Baby Girl (SBG)! Mommy had to go to the dentist. It had been a long time since I changed a diaper but it only took me two tries to become an expert again!
Lucky for me, Mommy has to go back to the dentist next Monday and I get to spend time with her again.
I think this time I will take handwork and give her the first lesson (of many) on how to work with wool! But with a face like that it will be very hard for me to pick up thread and needle . . . . . .
