Sewing, crochet and quilting have kept me occupied over the last couple of weeks.
Below is a sneak peek of some hand quilting.
I finished the hand quilting on Cheddar Cheese and Crackers last night. This little quilt has been going for a long time for me!!! I started the hand quilting around this time last year, but I was hit by tennis elbow, so most of my hand stitching was put away for quite a number of weeks. Since the cooler weather arrived here I started hand quilting again. This afternoon I will attach the binding. More photos to come soon.
I have sewn a few buds to the current Friends of Baltimore block.
A couple of finishes too!
I made another tablet sleeve. This one is for my DH. I used the same Yoko Saito fabric as I used for my DB's camera bag. The sleeve pattern is from Simplicity 3889. I also used this pattern when I made the lap top bags.
I finished the cowl for my DD. I used Madeline Tosh Merino DK, colour silver fox. When I saw Rita's Calm Cowl I thought it would be lovely for my DD. We decided to make it a bit more lacey by adding the edging.
The pattern for the edging came from this book, which I have had for a few years. It is full of a wide variety of patterns and easy to follow instructions.
I am very pleased with how it turned out, and thinking about making one for myself.
I haven't forgotten about making little houses from scraps.
Three more to add to the collection.
I spent a little while this morning finishing off adding labels to all my posts. I hope it makes it easier to find past posts on my various projects.
Recently I have found lots of inspiring projects out in blogland. I have made notes on several projects, quilts or even just single blocks I plan to try in the near future. Have you been inspired to make something from anyone's blog recently?
