I was there today at the Chicago show , and let me tell you!!....... Her booth was ALL THAT and a bag of chips( and a pickle and a cookie!!) She is new to me also. Fantastic elegant fabrics display and the quilt was indeed amazing!!!Very inspiring!!!!The show as a whole was good and I took pictures of some that were appealing to me. So don't feel bad .....I'll post some quilting content tomorrow on my blog!(wink)


Jan, that Fleece Artist is gorgeous! Wish I had some, but then it'd sit around waiting for me to finish all these other things.

Our friends from Indy, who we just vacationed with in Cabo, landed back in Indy on Sunday and drove pretty much into a tornado. They had to take cover in a church. Luckily, they are moving to Oregon this summer. I don't envy you being in tornado country. Take care of yourself!


Yummy yarn. Hmm, there's a stole version of the Diamond Fantasy Shawl - would that work?


Have you made the Shadow Shawl? I just bought yarn today to make it.....


I think that lovely yarn would look good in the lace poncho pattern from http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/web_projects/Poncho_staff_instructions.pdf (it's on page 2). I know the pattern is for a poncho but it's really just a rectangle. I'm planning on making it as soon as I find the right yarn.


The sky looks ominous. You may want to check out some of the Heartstrings patterns -- I have not knit any, but they are very pretty.


Oh sure, blame me. ;-)
How about Lotus Blossom? That's on my list. And Diamond Fantasy is a great pattern, too.


That IS quite a sky, Jan. Beautiful now that we know there was no damage involved!
And that akein of yarn is no slouch either! Just gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you create with it!
Great picture of (I assume) you and your daughter a world away.


Gorgeous yarn! Shawl suggestions: anything from Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle or fiddlesticksknitting.com.


I second the suggestion that you look through Folk Shawls ... I made the Sarah Blanch shawl in January, and it was a Very Nice Knit.


Rectangular? Not too big? Not too Small? Maybe it is time for a Clapotis? There are directions for making it into a stole....


I started Lady Eleanor from Scarf Style using FA Silk Stream (in autumn colors). It's on the back burner for now, but so far I like it.


Is that you wearing the shawl? You're so cute! just like your daughter. :-)
(I always surprise myself with my shallowness. But you are.)
