END OF WEEK ODDS AND ENDS


From roughly 11 PM Friday night to 8 AM Saturday morning we had 2.6 inches of rain. Here are two seasonal creeks that run east to west on our front 21 acres.

Then there is what I have dubbed the Raspberry Parfait Quilt. Tucked away in the Priority mail due to reach it's much loved recipient on Tuesday. Not a Christmas gift a gift of love for a special Aunt.



Note the binding hence Raspberry Parfait title.
 








Lastly if you take a good close look you can see some of the lovely long arm quilting my dear friend Pam did.


And not to be overlooked


a lovely hand woven scarf for a special birthday girl. The warp is cotton and the weft is merino, silk and bamboo. A fun weave to be sure!

Dinner for Thursday and leftovers tonight. Irish Shepherds Pie yes lamb is involved and it was delicious!





Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy one more photo of Mt. Shasta from our road. I love the layers the pasture the trees then the moutains in the distance and the layer of clouds above that. The "poof" cloud to the left of center atop Shasta in the middle that little bit of snowy peak.

    1. Thanks Leigh. I am already itching for another weaving project and have been spinning up the first of about 5-6 bushel baskets of some Shetland roving in three different colors. In the end (probably in about a year lol) it will have been woven into a blanket for my Murphy bed.
