I am nearly done with the first sleeve on my koivua sweater and decided to put it on hold and go ahead and start the second sleeve so that I can try to manage the changing colors on the spincycle yarn to sort of match the first sleeve. Meanwhile I realized yesterday that Wren’s birthday is in two weeks and I need to get her birthday sweater started!
I became a bit fascinated with the story behind barn quilts last spring when my husband and I were away celebrating our anniversary. For a few years now we’ve gone to a little cabin in the mountains a couple of hours away and I took notice of all the beautiful old barns in that area. I couldn’t help noticing the sweet barn quilts on almost all of them and have been wanting to read about it ever since. I found this book at the library, Following the Barn Quilt Trail, the story of a woman and her husband following the trail of the barn quilts from state to state and sharing the history and stories behind them. I just began it but I think it will be a good and relaxing read!

Also, here are some photos I took of barn quilts last spring when I began to notice them in my area.
