Spin? I do have that nasty fleece that I bought 'cause I just have to "do" a fleece from start to finish, sorta sheep to shawl.
Weave? I do have that towel warp on my loom from this month's challenge, the rug warp wound ready to beam on, and the study group has motivated my need for doubleweave. The weavers began this year with a towel exchange and a sharing of the information from the midwest weavers Conference last summer. It's all so stimulating. What to do, what to do?

And of course, I could quilt. I do have 4 babies to be born. Ut oh, that means 4 baby quilts. OMG, by when? So where do I go for inspiration, the quilt group. At our meeting, we talked about quilting designs, shared great resources, and of course, show and tell.

|The backside of Lucy's quilt.|
Lucy shared this quilt produced in Germany to show some of the patterns or designs we could use in quilting. This is completely hand quilted and note that the back looks as good as the front. Scary thought, please don't turn my quilts over.
|Marilyn's color wash study.|
In order to practice her machine quilting, Linda has been making small pieces. This whimsical christmas tree is just waiting for some echoing? swirls? pebbles? Who knows at this point. Each example gave the group more quilting ideas for their next project.
Okay, that crisp morning is creeping into afternoon, so I better get this show on the road. Too many ideas, too little time, what to do, what to do.
I think that nasty fleece really needs washing.
