Happy, happy, happy...

It's been a pretty productive week. Finished the appliqué on the left side of my quilt. Got the appliqué glue-basted in place on the right side and have started stitching it down. I'm getting close to having all the appliqué done. Pretty exciting!

Made a lot of progress with spinning this week as well. On my Navajo spindle is a 2- ply Shetland lamb/silk blend. Just need to get to get the stand for my Navajo spindle made so I can wind off and get the twist set. For those who are curious about my Navajo....I made it myself. It's got a bamboo whorl with an oak shaft and a brass tip.


On the Country Spinner is a 2-ply Shetland/alpaca blend that has been waiting for me to wind off and get the twist set. It's the "twin" to the other skein that I've already finished. Not sure what I will do with boths skeins. Maybe a piece of Shetland lace.

Pictured below is a Suri alpaca/bamboo blend. The bamboo was dyed pink/purple. I purchased this from a friend of mine who has a large Suri alpaca ranch. Lovely fiber to play with. I'm spinning it up on my Sonata. No plans for the completed yarn at this time.
