Making all Sorts of Things

Not much time for words so here are some pictures to make up for the last 2 weeks.
I washed and shrunk some gorgeous french linen and sewed on the hand crocheted lace (made by my husband's grandmother over 40 years ago.)
Added a border to the Shirt Quilt
Made another shirt quilt top from my Dad's old shirts.
I had been planning to do this for ages for my Mum but have been a bit lazy.
Now I have 2 backs to make.
Made this little quilt top from scraps and some white squares I found already cut.
It looked so colourful before it was sewn together.
It is a lot more white now.
And finished this little cardigan from Rowan Felted Tweed.
I saw brilliant mosaics gracing an underpass in Bentleigh.

Met my friends from Knitters Inc.
We downloaded this pattern from Ravelry and 2 of the members
were well on the way to finishing this little baby blanket.

And Sue decided she was going to upsize hers.
This sign was in the window of a wool and patchwork shop in Kyneton.
My husband took it because I was actually in there for ages and he patiently went to wait in the car.
He understands!

  1. Oh my goodness, you have been busy. Love your new quilt top as well as all the other projects. I hope your husband's grand mother's curtains didn't shrink too much. Maybe some stretching while ironing will fix it.
