I was working this afternoon to trace the interlace design on the background fabric for my next project- a Celtic Knotwork quilt. The South door makes an excellent light table. Pattern taped onto the window, fabric centered and taped and then: let the tracing begin.
It should be fun! I've got everything ready to make my fabric tubes to interlace, but I think I'll wait until tomorrow to cut them. After a couple of glasses of wine with dinner, I don't think I'm up to cutting 1 inch bias strips with my rotary cutter! I would probably lose a fingertip! This particular design has three separate interlacing lines which will be in different colors. The background fabric, which you can't quite see, is white with silver metallic speckles. It looks kind of like snow. The rest will be in shades of purple, blue and pink. I can't wait to see how it comes out!! This center panel is 15x 32 inches.
In other news, we have had another visitor here at the farm for a while. I haven't seen him, although V has, but I've seen his tracks after every snow:
We've evidently got a large orange cat living under the front porch.
He must spend his days out hunting. I'm not minding an outside cat that feeds himself- we've got plenty of mice and voles! The porch is sheltered and out of the wind but it still must get pretty cold at times. I've been contemplating putting out a dish of cat food so see if I can coax him out. V thinks he belongs to one of the neighbors but the cat seems to spend his nights here so I'm not sure if he's right. I just hope kitty is careful of the highway!
