As promised... goodies from the shop
Deb's swank new bag. Pattern: the 'Birdie Sling', from Amy Butler. Fabric: Heather Bailey's 'Pop Garden' and 'Bijoux'. Effect: breath taking. That woman has some mad skilz.
A quilt by a dude. Well, he did say his wife helped... a little. Do note the swirled quilting. It makes me a little dizzy. Or it could just be all the fabric I ordered while he was there to tempt me. Smart man. Disarming me by dangling a finished quilt in my general direction. I think fabric reps are of the devil. Crafty man.
Lil' friend Susan finished a pair of socks. She currently has who knows how many more on needles, but I grafted four toes shut today and none of them matched. I'm not even sorry, because Kitchnering a toe closed is so gratifying. I might never sit on her and make her learn it. (Actually, she knows, but refuses. Who am I to stand in the way of a woman and her nearly-finished sock?)
Yarn: 'Rhonda', custom dyed by Lotusknitter. Gorgeous stuff from a talented southern girl.
