Feathered Star

Kim and I have been blogging friends for about two years. I’m a knitter and she’s a quilter and a beautiful one at that. We agreed to exchange a hanging wall quilt for two pairs of hand-knitted socks. Then, we both got busy and the plan was set aside for awhile. This week, Kim surprised me with the feathered star quilt hanging. She is so talented and I am envious that she can make as many quilts as she does. Her local fabric store must love her not only for her purchases but for her sense of humor. Every year she has a ‘peep war” (you know, those marshmallow critters) during Lenten season. It’s hilarious to say the least.

Oh, yes, Kim is the one who sent me the “carrot” buttons for a bunny sweater I knitted when JoAnn’s was out of them at my store. She is really a great blogging friend. I’m pretty fortunate, wouldn’t you say!!!

I have Kim’s first pair of socks almost completed. The “Maine Blueberry” socks I blogged about last week. I have a great pattern selected for the second pair and am trying not to cast on yet till the first pair has been completed.


I have no idea if the settings on this blog are reader friendly or not. I've made so many changes as I hear from folks. My home computer is still not operational. The new router box has arrived and hopefully that issue will be resolved by tomorrow.


  1. It's beautiful!

  2. Wow, that quilt is gorgeous - lucky you! And lucky Kim to get two pairs of socks made by you. Definitely a win-win situation.

    I think your blog looks great - the type face is nice and big and there's good contrast between the font color and the background.

  3. What a beautiful quilt and a great idea for crafting friends. I think the blog looks great too.

  4. what a beautiful quilt -- your'e lucky gals!

  5. Absolutely beautiful! And you I am really liking your new blog.

  6. I'm so glad you like the colors of it. :) I'm so excited I'm getting blue waffle socks too!

    As for my local fabric shop liking me- well I haven't been buying too much as I have so much to use up.

    I'm going to make another star over the summer- if I can dye the right color for the star- a red/purple - like Merlot wine

    We still have 4 boxes of Peeps here waiting for either Mother's Day or Memorial Day wahahahahahaha
