I just wanted to let you know that I’ve cleared my Etsy shop of fabric and am now selling my handspun, handwoven scarves. BendingPins.Etsy.com

Clasped Weft

This scarf took infinitely more time to weave, it wasn’t as easy as tossing the shuttle back and forth. The warp is Merino, the wefts are Corriedale, Shetland (from Quebec!), Camel and silk.

This will be the last woolen scarf for now, I’ll be moving back to cotton and tencel for the next few projects, whatever they may be.

Charmed Covert Robin

First of all, I just want to share this bundle of loveliness I scored at Pinked Fabrics, Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.  O . M . G soooooo pretty! I was able to grab 3 charm pack all together and I think I’ll get some yardage & a jellyroll when it’s officially released. If you want some Vintage Modern for yourself, Amy still has some charm packs available in her Etsy shop! These are some of my favorite prints from the line (click on the images for a larger view).

       

Earlier this week I purchased a copy of “Quilting Line + Color” by Yoshiko Jinzenji. Although some of these quilts are entirely pieced and quilted by hand — something I don’t have the luxury (or patience) to do at this point in my life, there is a lot of inspiration in this book! I began to think of using various fabrics in a different way. When I was still sewing garments, I had purchased a few yards of cotton velvet as well as raw silk and think I’ve come up with a beautiful and interesting way of using it in my quilting. Here’s a sneak peak because this will be sent to my Covert Robin partner.

It’s so nice to see the sun again, this weekend can’t come soon enough, we need more long weekends!
