Mike and Erica found a really cool new yarn & fabric shop called A Verb for Keeping Warm. What a great place! As soon as you walk into their shop, all you see is color and texture. The colors of the yarns are all so rich and vibrant; it makes you just want to buy one of each! They also have some unusual fabrics that I haven’t come across before, so of course I had to get a few of those too.
I have been reading Helen Parrott’s Mark Making – Fresh Inspiration for Quilt and Fiber Artists. What a neat book! So many great photographs with lots of ideas. So based on what I have seen in that book, here is something I am currently working on. My plan is to make the flowers go across the width of the fabric. After that, I am not sure yet what to do with it – maybe add some things to it to make a pillow or wall hanging? Either way, I am really enjoying playing with my new yarns!
