Sewing with Handwovens

The Sewing with Handwovens with Carry Wilcox was a great experience.  I'll post some photos soon.  I thought Carry did a great job getting everyone to have a finished project and the group was totally cohesive.  We made a lovely jacket with a handwoven front panel, and some people used all handwoven fabric in the jacket, some used commercial fabric.  I'm ready to do another one!

I'm sorry not to have posted for so long.  First my computer died and I'm learning a new one...without a card reader to post pictures.  Second we went on a trip to visit our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren.  I stopped along the way at the Fiber Event in Greencastle and had a lovely time there as a vendor.  So the latest is our garden.  Being at such a high altitude and in the mountains our climate is not conducive to gardening, as well as the dogs and our newest puppy who think the garden beds are for digging.  So, for mother's day I had lovely help from husband Will and son Jeremy, fencing and getting the greenhouse together.  I thought I'd share the progress.

You can see our greenhouse is without ends as yet. We have a raised bed with plastic for warmth nearer to the house

The coldframe next to the greenhouse, which will house the tomatoes soon, has squash ready to plant!

I added some color with calla lilies this spring

We find pottery shards on the property. These were found in the garden area
