I loved latchet hooking but my wrist twitched as I read that your DD is doing that as her hobby these days.

Of course, reading about just any craft can trigger various body twitches in my wrists, my thumbs, my shoulders ... any body part that used to work on creative projects.

Short sessions of pushing a plastic needle are fun ... look at this goofy thing I'm playing with these days. Just a step above weaving potholders.  LOL  (Once I have added enough brown perle cotton for the trunk and red acrylic yarn for the tree, the nails will get pulled out and I hope I will have a tree shape that is tightly woven together.

You better watch out or you will get a mystery package from California, quilt tops looking for someone to finish them so they can find a loving home.

handful of blocks and created a beautiful quilt!

I seem to be having a lot of fun finishing other people's projects lately or using orphan fabrics to try out patterns.  The black & white was an orphan project too.  And somehow I don't feel as invested when the fabric was free and I know it will be a donation quilt.  So I'm free to play.   I am going to a local retreat next week and have several things in kits to work on.

Ya know .... I was just thinking that you are so much of a slacker that I am shaking my head.  Only *2* pieced tops ready to quilt?  Inconceiveable!  :-)

Only two unquilted tops left?!  That is impressive.  I have probably a dozen you can have if the two you have left are lonely.   I really like your quilt too.--Good idea to use the half pinwheels to add length.

Very pretty quilt!  Where do you donate them?

I enjoy seeing your weaving projects and so glad you found a project that is wrist friendly.  Be sure to post a photo of your finished tree. I used to weave rag rugs with my ugly or unwanted fabrics, but my wrists do the same thing.  I gave my looms away to avoid temptation to try again.  How are you doing at collection yarns?  Wish I had some to share with you, but I also got rid of my yarn because of the wrist thing.  Sad story--my cousin passed away several years ago and she was an avid yarn collector and crocheted tons of stuff.  When they cleaned out her house, ther must have been 8 huge garbage bags of yarn.  She was a smoker and unfortunately it all smelled so bad that they just had to throw it away--not like you can throw a skein of yarn in the washer.

.it is better to give those quilts to people so you get to see their joy than to have them waiting for you to die.

That's how I feel to.  Like to see them enjoy it.
