Hi everyone. The past week I have been knitting, crocheting and stitching frantically. I have finished the charity blanket which was knitted by mum , stitched together by me and the border crocheted by me. This is the first time I have attempted to crochet the edge. Last week at knitting group, ( we meet every Wednesday) , one of the lovely ladies kindly showed me how she does it . I was determined to learn and this is the result. Our knitting group has knitted over 600 blankets for charity within 3 years as well as knitting trauma teddies, penguin jumpers etc.
Meanwhile, I have nearly completed a lap blanket that I am knitting for the group and may have a photo of it stitched up and edged with crochet next time.
I also completed 3 more Farmer's Wife blocks.
I have now done about 30 blocks for this quilt and find them to be quite addictive.
I am signed up with Sue Daley's "Block to Block" and the 3rd lot arrived this month. I haven't started it yet but plan to later this year. I just love the fabrics that arrive each month.
Speaking of fabric, I went to Spotlight last week and bought these fabrics for my Farmer's Wife quilt. They are not Civil War reproductions like I have been mainly using but I think they will go nicely.
Did you make anything for Easter? All I did was these cute eggs I found instructions for on the Red Brolly blog. Bronwyn Hayes always has such wonderful ideas and tutorials.
Since my last blog entry I recieved another beautiful birthday pressie from the talented Vicki of The Pickledish Patch.
Thankyou for visiting my little cyber space home. I am now heading off to knit, stitch and crochet some more. Many angel blessings to you all.
