I just returned home from 4 great days at the retreat at Asbury Hills in Cleveland, SC. We had lots of interesting classes and took a field trip to Fletcher, NC to SAFF. We also had some great gifts from some vendors. The best gift bags were from Luna Lola which is Columbia’s newest yarn shop! I learned about color pooling too which I need to practice. I started a new project too. As usual, I bought too much yarn! Enjoy the photos!
I finished this 30″ x 30″ white baby blanket using some very basic white yarns. I used a half double crochet through the back loop stitch and it finished up in about two weeks. I did not use a pattern. I wasn’t quite sure what to do about the border then I found the fluffy yarn in my stash and just did a double crochet stitch all the way around after doing a single crochet stitch all the way around in the other yarn.
Last year I took a collage class and am just now really getting more into it. I’m using old books, postage stamps, magazines, metal leaf, oil paint, and various papers like Japanese origami paper on canvas board. Here are some of my recent works.
