My Weekend

Dec 12, 2010


it's getting a bit chilly at night, so i brought out an extra blanket for the bed
i started stitching the quilt by hand in college and finished it my first year of marriage
{i have only handquilted small blankets since then!}


brought home a package of scrap chipboard from the art store and drew these a few hours later


i've been wanting to do something with this beautiful yarn from my swap-a-thon,
then i saw kenzie's lovely yarn wrapped branch at the little winter market

i already had a branch in my house that was perfect for this, 
and i wrapped it last night while visiting with a friend

i think i'll hang it above my work desk and string from it 
a few origami cranes folded by my late grandmother

I found your blog last night and I am totally smitten. We share the same habit, among a list of other things. But you had me at yarn wrapped twig branch and origami cranes folded by late grandmother. Absolutely Amazing! Happy Holidays my friend. xo Samantha

I love this post, Cathy. The drawings are soo cool and so is that yarn-wrapped twig (may have to copy that one). Feel blessed to have known you far enough back that I actually remember when you were working on that quilt. xo

You found a great use for that yarn! It looks lovely on your lichen covered branch :)

flyhoof, thanks again for the beautiful yarn! I'm kinda jealous that the branch gets to be wrapped up in it!
