... the weather has turned dry and COLD... the garden is slowly beginning to get into the spirit of SPRING ...
.. I love to find these little hidden gems x
Tuesday evening was Congleton Quilt Group .. more ideas for the sales table.. I have not made mine yet .. but I made them a bag full of little items last week.. so I'll get round to more soon x The first of the raffle prizes .. with all the blocks made by the members has been long-arm-quilted..
I think it looks great x Lets hope the exhibition goes well and we sell LOTS of tickets xx
Thursday was Sandbach Quilt Group .. we had a speaker who does the most exquisite hand AND machine quilting .. it was a wonderful talk .. more like a great big Show-And-Tell...I LOVED IT xx
THIS week ..so far.. I only have 2 .. yes thats TWO things to do .. SO.. there will be some sewing done!! lol x I have decided it will happen ! lol x
I did finish my asymmetrical shawl.. you start at the small end (on the left in the pictures) and work towards the "big" end..
I had such fun with it .. you increase on one side and decrease on the other to get the shape I love the colour changes in this gradient...
...the top edge is EIGHTY SEVEN inches across! So getting pictures has been a challenge xx I also found out that reading charts is NOT so much of a nightmare as I thought it would be xx I had extra wool so went beyond what the pattern said .. I feel I should have done a large section of lace at the end instead of lace...short garter section ... then lace .. but there is always next time ... lol x
It certainly kept me entertained while waiting for one or other parent to come out of their appointments .. and the grandson to come home from school ... ah! No boring retirement for me xx lol x
I have been slowly catching upon reading Blog posts ... and who knows I may even find time to Post a few myself in the near future xx
Keep warm and safe
