Cotton Stripe

When I found this thrifted sweater I saw the potential of fun color combinations once it was apart. But I didn't know if I could reclaim it into usable lengths of yarn or a pile of short strands.

Turns out the yarns were carried up the side, so I just had to make sure I worked each color one at a time.

My husband didn't like the combination of colors in the sweater, but once I had them in skeins and laid them out in this sequence, he could see the possibilities. It's fun to experiment with color.

Miniature Quilt Exhibit

The county art museum had a miniature quilt exhibit that boasted hundreds of miniatures. I stopped in after quilt guild and enjoyed viewing them. One of the fun things about minis, even a lot of them, is that they don't take up too much space!

I liked the way some of the mini quilts were in frames. What a great idea.


This was the first time I used the camera on my low-end cell phone. If I'd known it would do an okay job, I would've taken more pictures!
