KNOTTY GIRLS MEET AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

The Knotty Girls Stitching Bee met tonight at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and as usual it proved to be a fun filled event.  I had to take a picture of this adorable kitten.  He is on a wool quilt/wallhanging that Sherri is making.
Above Sherri demonstrates how to make a certain stitch on her wool project.
JoAnn shows us the wallhanging she finished in time for Halloween.  Isn’t it cute!
Dee is working on an autumn stitchery that will be a wallhanging.  Someone said that it was a good idea that she decided on making it into a wallhanging instead of a pillow.  “People drool on pillows,” the woman said. (I never thought about that but I can certainly see that happening in my house!)
Dee is also finishing this ABC quilt.  I’m sorry I couldn’t get a better picture with more contrast to show up her excellent work!
One last item I couldn’t resist showing you.  How much are you willing to pay for a ball of yarn?  How much do you think this one cost?  Note the size compared to the Christmas light.  When we were told $85 we all gave a collective gasp!  It is Oiviuk yarn and is made from the Muskox, an animal in Alaska.  I’ll have to Google that one.  I’ve never heard of the animal, have you?  This is a little beyond my budget but it is wonderfully soft and I'd love to have a scarf made of this.

You have to go see this block that Geta has to show you.  I love it and hope to try it soon.  Check it out at Geta’s Quilting Studio

Stay calm! Stay kind! Stay Positive!

Hi Caroll,
Love that wooly kitten in the top photo.
FYI, the link to Geta's quilting studio did not work.

Take care.

I enjoy seeing the knotty girls projects, that witch is sooo cute.

Now I think I would have to forgo buying that yarn....

Love Geta...

I always enjoyed seeing your quilting photos. I especially like Dee'e Pumpkin stitchery. I also love the wool Kitty project allot.

I used to live in Fairbanks Alaska so your mention of the Muskox brought great memories as a bush school nurse.

The Muskox lives in the the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the far North of Alaska. I have seen them in the wild and they are mammoth creatures. There yarn is truly very soft but way to expensive for me too.

Hugs Judy

My husband and I used to live in Alaska and my brother has been living there for over 20 years so I do what a Muskox is. But, I don't think I would pay that much for that ball of yarn! Yikes!!

Your ladies over at the Attic Window are mighty talented. I just LOVE the wool applique and I can see our daughter's pup (we don't have cats) sitting in that basket! Too cute.

You know I love me my wool! I love that piece with all the great stitching.

Okay, $85 for that ball of yarn?! Wow! That's like that yak yarn I saw at Fiber Festival. If I made socks out of it, it would cost me $40 for one pair. But I sure do love it. Maybe someday I'll be able to afford it!
