The other day I caught up with the lovely O'faigh and her husband. My hubby and I went for a visit to her home and had a lovely lunch. We chatted and we laughed.
O'faigh searched through a suitcase of my mums kids knitting patterns.
( she was so excited to start knitting that when we left she raced to the shops for some wool to start knitting.) How keen is that....
I even brought home with me a great crochet blanket that she makes all the time.
So I have been sitting here making this.....
|Easy crochet pattern. Great use for scraps....|
It will be a pattern I use lots of times. So far very easy and a great design to use all those scraps....
Then on Monday I went to my sewing day with friends.
Even though it was a public holiday none of us had anything on...
I caught up with my SPLENDID SAMPLER BLOCKS
These blocks were made using some fabric that was donated by Anne McAllister from another group I belong to. I am sorting out some fabrics for string blocks that I will be sewing. These blocks I use for Aussie Hero quilts or send to JanMac,.. For charity quilts. None goes to waste...
|Block 32. Splendid Sampler|
|Block 34. Splendid Sampler|
Love the birdies on the line..
|Block no. 35 Splendid Sampler|
The cross was supposed to be embroidered but I used printed fabric.
I used a different machine and my seam allowance wasn't right so I had to add a border.
Then I worked on one of the friendship blocks for HEATHCOTE quilters.
My theme was LEADLIGHT & the request was for JAPANESE...
