The Past Month of My Life

My neighbor thinks I may perish from "chenille-ufocation."  I think she may be right.
My fixation on chenille has gotten out of hand.  For most of the past month, my spare time has been spent sorting, piling, creating bundles, and letting a lot of it go.  The above photo shows what I think I want to keep for my patchwork quilts.  I have already made quite a few quilts, but I have many more ideas and gifts to give.

 This second photo is in front of my regular quilt weight stash on the left and my weaving department which contains a variety of warp materials.  I love to weave, but I cannot access my supplies. 
 And this third photo is in front of my rug loom... all warped with a special treadling design in mind and I haven't been able to get to it for three years now.  Oh, dear!
And this pile of chenille is in front of my vintage bark cloth collection.... more projects in mind.  Will I live long enough?  I had better keep at it.  In the meantime I feast my eyes on these gorgeous colors and designs from days gone by.... such inspiration.  Check out my ebay and etsy sites if you want to help me out here.

Wow! That is a lot of chenille! I have some great childhood memories of chenille, but I must admit that I have no chenille.

Pat I will have to buy one of your quilts for my granddaughter's bed when she is older! I know what beautiful work you do.

Summer went by so fast! I can hardly believe it is November tomorrow!
