This and That
I'm surprised at myself for keeping up to date with this weekly block construction. My blocks use fabrics with text, letters, and writing. The quilt is being thought of as Word Salad.
I have a couple of quilts nearly ready to share. One will be gifted next week and another is a a graduation gift and yet another is a contribution for my school's upcoming fundraiser. And the blind man is still on the wall, where he's likely to be for a long time.
Seems that her man is a woodworker and she got intrigued by his process and decided to give it a try herself. She got a lathe (whatever that actually is) and some beautiful wood and worked the wood on the lathe and produced this gorgeous gift for me. I was absolutely delighted!
Have you figured out what it is?
This tool now lives in my sewing studio, right beside my Bernina.
And I use it.
