Fiber Arts Friday

 
 Purple Shell

Gibson by Babycocktails

 
 Sea Glass Tunic is blocked
 
 
It was fun to learn crochet.
 
 
Which finds me in a lull between projects and I do not do well with idle hands.
So hexapuffing it is.
 
 
 
Such a great way to use up scrap yarn.
 
'Only' 271 to go before I have enough to make a Beekeepers Quilt.

That's a very interesting cable on the shell, will have to look it up! I love your crochet piece. I have been thinking about doing some filet crochet, yours is very inspiring.

That Beekeepers Quilt looks like fun as you keep adding more puffs of different colors and fiber to the mix. Saw you post about the old house - is that on Route 1 on the way down to Monterey? Such a shame that this beautiful old house has been neglected. Can you imagine the story of the families who lived there?
