Cloth-folding Magic of Furoshiki

Using a 105  centimeter (just over 41 inches) cloth, look what you can do! I am fascinated by this method of folding. How green! How clever! I first saw this at my last quilt retreat as one of the gals showed us how to do a bag and the wine bottle carrier.

The Japanese way is to use a beautiful silk piece, but I don’t see why this couldn’t work with some 100% cotton quilting fabric too. Grab some fabric and give it a try!

Halloween Bash

It was hopping last night at the First Annual (yep, there might be others) All Hallows Eve party. It was a night for the adults; although it occurs to me now that most of us were not acting like adults. Oh well.

Things were going well until my camera battery died, so I’m hoping for more photos eventually. In the meantime, enjoy this ghoulish group of crazies. And the food was amazing. I said potluck, and these folks really did it up. Gotta love a party where you don’t have to cook.

We watched Young Frankenstein and it was a hoot. It’s a classic. 1974. Black and white movie… it!

Happy Halloween!
