Soooooo, this past weekend I went away with Mum for a quilting weekend. After a rocky start where we weren't sure if it would go ahead, Mum stitched, unpicked and restitched a red and white square for a charity quilt and finished a patchwork bag she had been working on. Some 1/4 inch feet just don't do a 1/4 inch seam!
I worked on the shadow quilt I began at last year's weekend away and came home with all of the coloured squares attached and all 4 layers pinned together ready for quilting. The final quilt will be approximately 2.4 m x 2.4 m and will be for my bedroom. Seen here folded in half and hanging over the sides of the bed.
My next quilt is going to be a pieced Storm at Sea quilt in navy and white prints also eventually for my bed. So far it is still all in pieces and I still need to do some more cutting before it is ready to be sewn but it is indeed getting there!
I recently completed my Lily Cardigan in a gorgeous grey which, as the weather cools, will be getting a lot of wear as it will go with pretty much everything.
I currently have two cardigans and a pair of socks on the needles. One cardigan just needs a sleeve, the second cardigan needs 2 sleeves and half a front, and the sock is sort of in limbo. I can't decide whether to frog the sock and make it smaller or keep going and give it to someone with larger feet than me. Decisions, decisions!
