I am amazed at how frequently I have been blogging lately. I guess that's because I have been busy stitching. First I want to show you what I made for Carol in our FHFS for October. Now, wool or felt was waaaay out of my comfort zone but I had a test drive with a couple of projects I made for Christmas which I showed you earlier. Having discovered that I quite like working with this medium I was then on the hunt for some good wool/felt which proved to be a very difficult task locally. So, with the time ticking away I located what I needed from Mrs Martins Quilt Shop via the internet. Thanks to Karen I could then proceed making what I had planned . I found a lovely design for a table runner in one of my Simply Vintage magazines and this is the result.
I am still having fun sorting through scraps of wool felt for another project or two but meanwhile I have been busy stitching something for myself from Gail Pan's book Patchwork Loves Embroidery. Being a blanket stitch applique person I found trying to needle turn good but I have not quite perfected it yet. ( So glad this project is only for me). I have cut the sashings and corner stones ready to machine piece as soon as I have completed the last 5 blocks.
My crochet -a-long is growing and I am on the last few rows now before I start the borders. I have really enjoyed this adventure and am looking for more patterns to use up all my left over yarns.
Now I am looking for background fabric to complete the hexie Christmas freebie design from the lovely Jenny.
