IT'S A PATCHWORK QUILT OF A LIFE,
CAN'T STOP THE RIVER,
JUST LET IT ROLL....
Sorry to be a rebel but there's no desk to show this week. I've been away at my Dad's, then my son popped home from Uni so no sewing at all....Tsk tsk, Must Try Harder, LLJ.... But this is the finished dolly pram quilt and pillow. Sweet colours :-)
Look at this spread of hexie gorgeousness, sent to by Twiglet and Wipso for the Crochet for Kidneys charity I featured a couple of weeks back. Thanks Girls, you are always stars - I know that these will be gratefully accepted. Elizabeth is crocheting like crazy too and will be sending hers direct. And Julia is using up her odds and ends of yarn just like I did and giving me a few to add to the pile on Thursday. I think I'll need a bigger envelope!
My offering - I used up all the ends of the Crofter variegated wool I had, which pleased me immensely! It meant I didn't have to change colours every row either! (How lazy is that, lol!!)
Twiglet also sent these little cardis to pass on...aren't they sweet? I especially love the blanket stitch edging on the paler cardi, a lovely finishing touch. Thank you Twiglet....you are a generous soul :-)
Finally...a prezzy for me and a what-am-I-going-to-do-with-this! The needle felt hare kit was from Helen, a dear friend in Band. She has got a different kit, so I think we're going to have to have a crafty day together soon. I've never done this before but know I'll end up with punctured fingers!!! And the Whiskey bottle tube is empty (well done Gordon!!) but it's too good to put in the recycling bin. Any suggestions??
So, short(ish) and sweet from me today! Have a great week :-)
