Unfinished Objects (UFOs)

I have been hand quilting a UFO throw I pieced and sandwiched several years ago.  Awhile back I stalled in the quilting but found new vigor a couple of weeks ago.  By this time next week I hope to be binding it.  Just as I was feeling triumphant and almost caught up with one of my crafts…..voila!  Buried in a bin I was digging in yesterday I found yet another pieced quilt top that fell by the wayside years ago.  Periodically I have wondered what ever happened to those squares…….now I know.  So the top is sitting folded a few feet away from me.  It’s a double bed size sampler with a different pattern for each block in greens and purples. At least I still like the blocks and the colors.  But I may just tie this one.  That somehow feels like cheating but sometimes expediency is where it’s at.

Weaving With Cats

I'm a longtime weaver who likes to weave fabric for clothing. More recently, I learned how to to knit, spin yarn, dye, felt, bead & more. My spiral motif rigid heddle Mermaid Scarf appeared on the cover of the Nov/Dec 2015 issue of Handwoven magazine. I invented the freeform overshot weaving technique with which I wove my Mermaid Scarf. I sell weaving patterns and instructional booklets in my Etsy shop. Visit my Facebook page Lisa Rayner Handwovens. Join my Facebook group Weave Along With Lisa Rayner for weaving instruction and inspiration. You'll also find Lisa Rayner Handwovens on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram. I like complex patterns, hand dyed yarns, high quality fibers and customers who want me to make them something special. I am not a production weaver. All items are custom made.
