And yes, in case you're wondering, I had a change of heart and changed one of the colors. The blue colorway is a Plucky Knitter yarn called Two Drifters in Primo Fingering. The neutral color is a Cephalopod yarn called Moon Jelly in Skinny Bugga. Now I have to get up the nerve to do the rest -- which involves at least two techniques I've never done before. Yikes! Plus blocking and finishing, of course. I seem to have put it away for now. lol!
Here is my Fussy Cut Fridays Star for the week, using a Jo Morton Woodlands fabric.
And here are my Tula blocks for the week. Being finished with the triangle blocks is a relief. :D
Sorry for the shadows in some of the pictures. I now have 67 blocks out of 100 done. Here's my pile so far.
The father type and I went to our favorite craft fair on Saturday, the Lyndhurst Craft Fair. It's both a foodie and crafty extravaganza. We always manage to get some kettle corn.
And to bring home a yummy tart from Dutch Desserts. (This one was peach/raspberry.)
There were so many wonderful artists there, but I feel funny posting pictures without giving them credit so I won't. But we did stop at one of my favorites, Laura Baring Gould, who makes wonderful cast bronze pieces. This makes the third year I've bought something from her.
We had a lovely conversation about her work and about other things as well. And I brought home a lovely piece.
The piece in the front -- a "bound foot shoe" made from an actual shoe from China. You can see all the wonderful detail from the shoe, even the stitching. The two pears in the back are also Laura's work. What you can't tell from the pictures is how wonderfully heavy and substantial these pieces are. The bound foot shoe has even more significance for me since one of my grandmothers had bound feet. She showed them to me once, unwrapped and naked. It's an experience I will never forget.
(The box in the back is one from the wonderful Betsy Krieg Salm. I've shown it before on this blog.)
I can't end this post without a pic of our Mia. Here she is, having fallen asleep in a typical position in her bed.
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
