I may need an intervention

Having a little bit of an affair with yarn these days. It's so lovely to have a small-ish, portable project to work on while waiting for kids or hanging out with Gary at the end of the day. This is the latest - a cabled cowl.

It has been immensely satisfying to work on and I am so in love with this yarn - Madeline Tosh Jade. Just the right amount of yellow undertones and the green is such a gorgeous shade. If I could afford to make a whole sweater out of this, I would. But I'm so happy to have the cowl - not complaining one bit!

Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to spending the day at my *gasp* sewing machine tomorrow for the Portland Modern Quilt Guild all day sew. I'm working on some more paper piecing and patchwork, which I will be happy to share. I promise that I haven't abandoned my fabric!

I've also been doing a small amount of teaching/sharing with a friend who has never made a quilt before. It's been a very interesting experience and once I get my thoughts about it all sorted out, I'd love to share more about it here.

Go do something creative! It will make you happy!
