I've been knitting....socks!!
Easy peasy and so warm.
I don't knit very often, my hands and fingers don't like it much.
My tootsies do though. I made these for me,
and another pair in the same yarn for Joe
I made the sides on mine slightly longer than the pattern
I get cold ankles too.
I'm currently working on a pair for Natasha
As well as knitting I'm still crocheting the bed blanket
The first two photos were taken last week....
These two today, so slowly but surely it's growing
and my stash is slowly reducing.
It has to be right!
You get a general idea how much further I need to go.
I'll stop where the pillows start
I took my camera to craft yesterday but left the SD card in the computer!
So these are of last weeks craft session
Ngaire (right) had started another quilt, a log cabin this time. You won't believe it but this week she had another one started, a black and white.
The woman's a machine I tell ya!
And Jan has got her Calendar quilt blocks together and her quilt top is finished. Of course it needs batting and backing on and quilting. Another year in the finishing perhaps.
Some time ago Sue found this rather cute chook quilt in an op shop.
I liked it so much I borrowed it, traced it and made it.
I finished it today.
I used some Aboriginal fabrics in my stash, found in an op shop no doubt, and scraps from my box of scraps, perfect for appliqueing
I rather like it.
Remember if you click on any of the photos they will get bigger!
And that's it for today.
Remember the blog will link to Facebook and as
I'm taking a break from FB, any comments left there I won't see.
If you want me to see them then leave a comment on the blog
or email me.
