Crazy Batik

I'm so close to done.  I have to attach binding, but first I have to make the binding.

 

I also have a thousand or so threads to bury.  Lucky for me I have a guild retreat coming up.  Perfect project.

City of the Beasts

City of the Beasts (Eagle and Jaguar, #1)City of the Beasts by Isabel Allende

From the Goodreads website: "Fifteen-year-old Alexander Cold is about to join his fearless grandmother on the trip of a lifetime. An International Geographic expedition is headed to the dangerous, remote wilds of South America, on a mission to document the legendary Yeti of the Amazon known as the Beast.

But there are many secrets hidden in the unexplored wilderness, as Alex and his new friend Nadia soon discover. Drawing on the strength of their spirit guides, both young people are led on a thrilling and unforgettable journey to the ultimate discovery. . ."

 

Holy Smokes!!! This book was great.  I fell asleep reading it more than once and not because I was bored.  I stayed up way past my bedtime because I couldn't put it down.  I can't wait to read more of her works.

More Baby Blanket

 

Nothing like a little computer issue to cause radio silence for a while.  I think I'm back up and running again.

I was able to finish off Color 5 on the blanket and get a good start on Color 6.

 

Color 6 is Madeline Tosh in Charcoal, a most lovely yarn.  It's beginning to look like a blanket.

Happy Holidays!

Crazy Batik

The quilting is done and I'm trimming the borders down to size.

When I can, I like to cut the borders after the quilting is done.  The extra fabric makes it much easier to deal with on the machine and I have a nice clean edge for the binding.
