I’m making the Purl Scarf for a friend by the name of Byrne. Nan Byrne. She’s a cool cat–she compiled the collection of short stories, Bar Stories, and you can check out the book here and/or read her blog all about bar stories.

date on this pretty quilt that I’m working on. It’s the Sawtooth Star pattern. I do like my lavenders…
