Garden Produce/ Knitting

Produce/ Ornaments/Birds

Sassy is knitting Christmas ornaments. Don't ask why.
She doesn't know why. It is a re-entry into knitting. And the
birds they are another story. She foundArne and Carlos
online. They are Norwegian designers writing about fair
isle and knitting birds. The Sassy one is hooked. So, she gave it
a go and photographed them with the lovely peppers, the last
of the garden produce.

Flower Garden

A dear friend sent  this embroidered runner as birthday gift.
Sassy named it: "Sassy's Flower Garden." The beautiful colorful flowers are enchanting. They symbolize the joy of a long friendship with a kindred spirit. A perfect gift!

The Year of the Cardinal

A few weeks ago Sassy's friend of fifty years died.
Her last gift was a magazine filled with photos of
Hummingbirds. Sassy could not lure Hummingbirds
 to her feeder.

Lorrayne died by allowing herself to be taken off life support. The Hummingbirds came. She sent them to my feeder..

And for Sassy's birthday daughter # 3 gave Sassy this art work;
a Hummingbird.

The Hummingbird resides over the kitchen fireplace, a reminder
that those on the other side bless us.

A New Season

Sassy had a run at learning to weave on an eight harness loom. The pattern: deflected double weave.  It is variegated Tencel  and Merino ruby 18/2. The pattern is #4 Linen Deflection by Elisabeth Hill. Tencel and wool were the yarns of  choice.

Weave It Day

Today was a get-on with it day. Sassy put off
weaving this experimental warp long enough.
Time to become intrepid.

A cooperative warp and weft made for a
successful sample.

Lovely way to wind down August with Sari silk
woven on Sari silk with a header of chenille.
This sample will inspire lots of possibilities
for future projects.

Thank you to a dear friend for the generous
gift of a half dozen Saris.
