2011 – Week 3

Four of us caught up this week and this is a little of what we were up to.

 

Julie spoiled us again. This is a sewing related post as you can clearly see the cake is sitting on top of a cutting mat:

 

Kirsty is back from her trip to NZ. I think one of the main reasons she came back is to fondle her yarn stash, and frankly – who could blame her:

 

Michelle’s stitching is taking form now as she starts to sew the pies onto their background fabrics. The colours in this quilt are quite gorgeous:

 

I have forsaken my sewing this week for my new love – KNITTING!! Here is my current project that is going to be a sweet little cardigan for my daughter:

 

Happy Crafting.

 

Week 23

Here is a little taste of some of the things we have been doing this week:

Julie was finishing off Cathedral windows… beautiful.

Tracey showed us a quilt top that she has been working on.

Kirsty knitted this gloriously bright cardigan (beautifully modeled by Julie). It is knitted in 4 ply and took up a lot of sewing time to complete.

I’ve decided to rip this cardigan and start something else.

Best of all we got to talk to Flo who we all miss – a lot.

SO last season

But I don’t care.  Sales do that to me!  This winter I’ll be making myself something more advanced than a scarf!!  I should work out what to make soon, in case I need to run back to the store and find all my lovely cheap wool has gone.img_2845There’s two different types of wool for two different projects.  Just thought I’d throw that in there in case anyone thought I had exceedingly bad taste (which, well, I do…) and was going to mix them up.
