March has been very busy with family activities.  Mainly, wrestling.  Our Middle School grandson is a very serious wrestler and this year he was advanced to the high school junior varsity team to wrestle in some matches at that level besides his middle school schedule.  We did not make all the matches but we did make it to the Middle School Metro where he was named Most Outstanding Wrestler and to the High School State Tournament where he placed in his weight class.  So proud of him!

With some time left over, I did accomplish a few things in my studio.

This is a paper pieced wall hanging using the freezer paper method  of foundation paper piecing. 

This fun little piece is made of leftover "scraps" from a larger project.  The binding is not complete, but maybe that will be completed before March totally ends.  
Modern Quilt Guild Mini Swap was so much fun!  This is Foundation Paper Piecing using Freezer Paper.

I have a monthly subscription to Darn Good Yarn Mystery Box.  Each month there is a wonderful skein of something with a paper and a little surprise gift.  In March I received a skein of Silk Sari Roving.  I tried to knit with it and that was not a good idea.  It would simply shred too much.  Then I decided to weave with it on my Zoom Loom.  It did the same thing.  So, on my third attempt to use this beautiful roving, I chose to warp my Zoom Loom with it and then weave with another yarn.  That was the answer!

Several of these squares are made with  the Sari Roving.  This is the beginning of a woven table runner for my back porch dining table.

Another fun project with the Zoom Loom was making Lavender Sachets for drawers and closets.

I love playing with this little loom.

A friend loaned me her HFS Washcloth Square Loom to play with.  So, of course, I made a "washcloth" except that I will use it as a dish cloth.

This is pretty cool weaving on the diagonal.

The month is coming to a close and I know there were a few other things I worked on as well as doing a little gardening.  I guess that will have to be another post later.
Happy Spring!!
