Been Busy

I haven't blogged in a few weeks but I have been sewing. I won't lie I've made many more coiled rope bowls as well!
I made this table runner with Bali Pops and of course none of the yards and yards of batik fabric I had matched. So I was forced to buy a few pieces from Handcocks of Paducah to bind it!

I chose the wood grain batik for the binding. 

I still crochet in the evenings and as usual I have many projects going at the same time. I'm working on this shawl with a natural dyed yarn. It was dyed with Sumac!

This is the other project I'm working on, another test pattern for Mad Cap Fancies. It's one of the last in her series "Downton Farewell". This is Lady Rosamund.

I have made 28 coiled rope bowls so far and I'm still loving them! I'm using lots of scraps and many ugly fabrics that are not so ugly when made into bowls. Ha ha

It's always like that; never have the right fabric! It gives us a good reason to buy more! :) Beautiful TR. Love your baskets, I have yet to try. Beautiful crocheted shawls.

Those bowls are gorgeous with those "ugly" fabrics!! Your crochet is amazing too.
