Working with fabric

IMG_0464Thanks to my friend Diana, I now have a reason to use my treadle sewing machine for something besides mending clothes and making dog toys! She introduced me to In the Patch Designs, owned by my new friend Phyllis. If you love wool and fabric, this is the place to go in Troy OH. Phyllis hand dyes all of her wools and they are fabulous. She also has fabrics (like the ones you see here), patterns, notions…there’s a lot in this little shop.

I picked up a stack of 5×5 squares and have been playing around with making coasters – you’ll be seeing them at the farmer’s markets this year.
