I returned a few days ago from a week with old friends, exploring the delights of eastern Indiana. We visited a stop on the Underground Railroad (beautifully curated and interpreted in Fountain City), the amazing West Baden Springs Hotel at French Lick, the combined hotel and art venue called Alexander in Indianapolis (this was so cool!), the Indiana State Museum and the neighboring Eiteljorg Museum of western and Native American art.
Then on to South Bend to see the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame. And then back to Dayton. So many sights, such great meals, and the company of dear friends.
So now I am home and itching to get started on a project or two. I have committed to making a large wall piece for the local Chamber of Commerce, so have prepared background fabric and made preliminary plans (back of an envelope at this point). And the concept for another Flyover is swirling around. I bought beautiful hand-dyed wool yarn in Alaska to develop a theme around glaciers. Of course, it's too warm here to consider knitting a sweater, so one skein of each colorway was enough. Today, while obsessed with the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, I used it to cover jute cording. Not too sure what will happen next, but here are the coils of cording, about 8 yards apiece.
