we three things: week of october 21st

We Three Things (#W3T) is a group exercise intended to promote creativity and happiness. Each week, participants pick three projects to work on and then share the results. Feel free to post a link to your 3 things in the comments!

Last week's things: 

1. Carryover from last week -  Sew borders and backing for indigo quilt. 

Result - Double win! I even got the thing basted and half quilted.

2. Make apple mincemeat. 

Result - Win! Not the most visually prepossessing food product I've ever produced, but it makes up for its looks with lots of flavor. Once again, a winning recipe from Punk Domestics

3. Warp one section for rya rug.

Result - Task updated. Since I'm using the front of my loom as an impromptu cutting table (weavers, I know - it makes me wince too), I can't get to the back of my loom to warp it without dislodging all the quilting stuff.  Gah.

In lieu of warping, I worked on a weft project. I have a lovely little lincoln fleece (under three pounds) from last year's Maine Fiber Frolic. I picked and carded some of the locks, and ended up with three really nice batts. There would have been more batts, but I accidentally felted about six ounces while trying to remove some stubborn lanolin.

 

This week's projects: 

1. Finish quilting on indigo quilt, and cut edging. 

2. Preserve home-grown basil.

3. Card five batts from Lincoln fleece. 

 

What are your three things this week?
