King Spiderweb Progression

I'm going to change my name to Charlotte...

OK, not really, but remember in the book how Wilbur keeps asking how long it will take Charlotte to weave her web? And she tells him to be patient because these things take time...or in her case, all night.

I know how Charlotte felt. I'm happy with how it's coming together, but dang is a king-size bed BIG. I started with 2 charm packs, 1 in Kona Ask, the other Good Fortune by Kate Spain. It's almost laughable that I thought I could make a king-size quilt with all of 2 charm packs isn't it? Then I went and only bought 1 more of each...yeah, that might get me to a twin. I finally stopped my cheap-o ways and bought a Good Fortune layer cake and a yard of Kona Ash.

Had a marvelous time in Austin, TX last weekend, visiting my new niece. Out of respect for my brother and SIL who don't have a blog or podcast, I won't post any pictures of her here, but trust me she's so stinkin' adorable it was all I could do not to stow her away in my bag when it was time to go. We had a chance on Sunday to walk around South Congress Ave., filled with kitschy shops and restaurants. There is a yarn shop, Hill Country Weavers, that is filled with mouthwatering yarns and fiber, so naturally I had to look around. It's a minor miracle I only came home with this:

Everlasting Dream in Color 100% superwash Australian merino wool. 
#704 Grow colorway

I think I'm taking the girls to Maryland Sheep and Wool to see the sheep this afternoon. It's been years since I've gone. Should be "interesting" because Maddy's temperament has been "squirrelly" lately, to say the least. Hope your weekend plans are fun!

  1. Tanesha, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your podcast. I was driving from southern MO to Minneapolis last weekend and got to catch up on my podcast listening. The 6 block commute to work doesn't allow for much time to listen normally. You have recommended several books that I just love, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and Ready Player One. Both are at the top of my favorites list and next up, To Kill a Mocking Bird which I somehow went through high school and college without having to read. I'm looking forward to it since so many people seem to have it on their favorites list. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your time.
