...from the Sounds of Silence album by Simon and Garfunkel. A lot of my projects seem to remind me of songs. Does that ever happen to you?
Anyway, I have a finish to show you today!
This is one of two designs from Prairie Schooler Book 152
entitled (are you ready?) April.
It was finished into a beautiful flatfold by
Here is a better view of the lovely material
that she used for the back of the piece.
And now for something completely different...
I do knit from time to time.
This project is called Slopes Scarf
and the pattern is available on Ravelry.
It's not quite finished--
I made sure that the needle didn't
make it into the photo.
Unfortunately, I don't remember

It's a Merino wool and it's
And here's something I'm really excited about...
I ordered some antique white, 32-count,
Monika evenweave from Tanja Berlin,
and it came this week.

I don't think I'll need all of the 70,
so I might have some left over for smaller projects.
For those that are interested in this fabric,
Tanja sells it in either a half-yard or a yard,
and the width is always 70 inches,
which was perfect for me
because I intend to use this on the
Prairie Schooler alphabet.
I plan on stitching it all
on this one piece of fabric,
3 letters across and 9 down.
There is an extra pattern in the Y-Z booklet
which comes to an even 27.
Friends that know me personally
are well aware that I'm very eager to start
this piece. However, I'm going to
try to show some restraint
and wait until Dawn Chorus is finished
before I start.
We'll see if that happens.
That's it from here.
Have a wonderful weekend.
The weather is supposed to
be gorgeous in the Chicago area--finally.
Thanks for visiting!
