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?
