I will never be a Quilter....




I discovered this lovely book at the library this week and have been dying to get stuck into having a go....



Some material from my stash and a template....




and we have a delightful 'Sun Rose'. Doesn't that look cute....




another one, some felt and a few stitches....




and we have a lovely little needle case.... (sorry about the blurry photo...it is not your eyes )




add a few beads and its finished. I could make more of these, they are fun!

I have always loved the combinations of colour that Quilters come up with with their amazing quilts but unfortunately age has robbed me of my ability to judge a straight line so "i will never be a Quilter'. I can however enjoy a little colour and pattern creativity with these little flowers.

Kumiko Sudo has a whole collection of them for me to try in her book and my mind is overflowing with ideas for their uses....

Remember my large needles and a bit of a twist?




Gwenstella posted about her lovely cable scarf and thanks to Raglan Guld's fab tutorial about cables I thought I can do that....




Finally a scarf for ME!

Hope you are all having a great weekend! :-)

  4. I really like it. But you're bad - just as bad as I am. I can't dare even look at books, because I'll buy too many, bring them home and then want to make everything. Everything that's cool, I wanna do. And there isn't enough time in mortality even for that, let alone the animals, the family - holy cats.

  7. I love the needle case too, and if you can sew a needle case you can sew a quilt. You could do wonky blocks. It's Ok if they look wonky.

    Love the colour and cute factor of that scarf !
