Two Boxes of Fun

I love days when Boxes of Fun arrive from the Loopy Ewe!

Today my Camp Loopy project 3 packages arrived.

Here’s the yarn for my knitting camp project – I’ve been assigned to the Moose Run Lane Ravelry group for the last camp knitting project.

DSCN3610  I’ll be making Puck.  The yarn is Stonehedge Fiber Mill – Shepherd’s Wool DK in Antique Rose, Beaches and Midnight Lake.  I actually might even have a blouse in just about the same color as the Antique Rose now that I look at it that the shawl would look good with — maybe — or maybe I’ll need to buy something new. 🙂  Now to wait for the start of month 3.

 

My Camp fabric project fabrics arrived too — most of them.  I had placed the order for them before actually figuring out the design I wanted to use them in. I had a general idea but once I got it nailed down, I needed to add a bit more fabric so there’s a piece or two still coming.

The fabrics are Charley Harper designs.  If you don’t know the name Charley Harper, you can see his work here.  He was an illustrator and I especially love his birds.

So here’s the fabrics I got.

Except for the solid under the dotted bird print, and the Short stack of black tone on tones, the rest are Charley Harper fabrics. Hopefully I can get the larger prints fussy cut the way I envision it in my head!

But before dreaming too much about this project, I really need to get THIS month’s fabric project layered and quilted.  I never got around to it on the weekend but I was busy writing up a new pattern for Hoffman Fabrics and drawing up a second design for them.  Next weekend – that will be my weekend to get the quilting done – I hope!

In the meantime, since my 2nd camp knitting project is done, I’ve switched back to my Customfit Summer Sweater KAL project which is supposed to be done by August 15.  Yipes, I’d better knit fast the rest of this month so I get it done before the next Camp project starts.
