In the Frame and a Finish

I finally finished the top (flimsy) of the garden quilt!

008

It’s the bow-tie pattern with hand-appliqued hexie rosettes.

014

It is now sandwiched, basted and in the frame – ready to be quilted.

And here is another Because You Matter quilt. This little double Irish chain will go to a child through the RCMP Victim’s Services Unit here in Salmon Arm (via the Shuswap Quilt Guild.)  Fabric & batting donated by the Shuswap Quilt Guild. Labour donated by yours truly.

Officially Samson-approved!

Throwback Thursday: Bellydance & Big Band

Two of the things I miss the most all wrapped up into one pretty package!

I miss the creative expression that choreographing for the troupe allowed me to indulge in. And DAMN I miss playing that big band music!

From 2011: Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps: a cane dance, choreographed by me and performed by Saba Middle Eastern Dance Ensemble & The Big Band.

I love thick soft cables knit from wool on wooden needles

the beginnings of a lacy infinity scarf knit with “Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo” yarn

Progress on the orange peel quilt…171 peels so far. About half done.
