As you can see from the above I have been busy stitching – I am quite pleased with how this is looking and already planning what type of frame would suit all the colours. I am veering towards a mahogany colour.
Also along the lines of my new project – the Bee Quilt – I have also had another idea and have proceeded to purchase the material required for my “Stag Quilt”. Having received the stash of material, I promptly cut it up to the desired sizes. Below are a series of pictures depicting how it should look when completed. The 1st picture is a corner image with the border, the 2nd is further down the quilt showing the border and main quilt pattern, 3rd and 4th are closer images.
I quite like planning and cutting out the quilt pieces, but as this is new to me I find myself nervous of actually sewing them together. Once I have taken the plunge then I will be fine. If I am honest I feel the nervousness every time I start a new project. It is a happy nervousness so no worries! In my head and on paper I have drawn out about 10 designs.
The knitting hasn’t altogether been forgotten, I have knitted about another inch on the back of the cardigan.
At work I have been sewing some of the Christmas Stash so hopefully will show you a finished bauble soon, and also started one of the bookmarks I mentioned some time last year.
Well that’s all folks
See you next post (possibly Sunday)
