Oh, they were! I made them (and a massive strawboard cheesecake type affair) for a birthday party, but they were inundated with food and we ended up bring them home again. So we've been caked up to our eyebrows all week!

When I was having my major yarn shop for supplies for this lovely cardi a few weeks ago, I thought what the heck, and treated myself to a ball of Drops Fabel in Berry Dreams. Really it was the colour that sold it to me, following on from my established... Continue reading

Happy to help, Nicholson :-) and apologies for the really terrible delay in responding. Hopefully I'll be a bit quicker now the mojo is working again!

Gosh, I am ridiculously excited about the fact that this is the third post I've managed in 2 weeks. Given the fact that this is possibly a higher frequency of posting than the last, what... four years, I feel pretty good about it. As I said previously, I've been thinking... Continue reading

Well, it's been more than a year now since my last post. I think about this blog a lot. Mostly when I'm at work (I have a job now!). It seems that, like a lot of people who started blogging around the mid Naughties, life has got in the way,... Continue reading

Your images reminded me of Carl Larsson. Do you know him? A Swedish painter, died in 1919. I love his images of family life.

Gosh, I've been away for so long that I barely know where to start! I write posts in my head in the middle of the night and never get any further so here's a test of mobile blogging or moblogging if you feel that way inclined. Let's see if this... Continue reading

Quilt number 2, which started life as the backing to the baby quilt, has mostly taken a very slow back seat in the last month or two, mainly because I've been crocheting, and also because the next bit was going to be a bit of a fiddle and I never... Continue reading

I've been flitting from project to project in the last few weeks, following the completion of the baby quilt. Mostly I've been crocheting (and there'll be a post about that coming along shortly) but I've also done a spot of dress making and finally managed to do a bit more... Continue reading

Meanwhile, back as Stashlet's quilt, here's how far I'd got before I put the quilting on hold in order to finish Baby L's quilt: One panel of steps and one panel of circles done. I really like the circles, and am tempted to do the whole main panel of quilting... Continue reading

It's done! Well, it was finished a week ago, but it took a while to get decent light and non-gale conditions for some photos. Mr G did the honors and held it up (better than pegs!) but I forgot to take some photos of the back to had to pin... Continue reading

Thank you everyone so much for all your lovely comments - it seems that we're nearly all collectors of something or other (especially yarns and fabrics!). Just in case you've been down a mine or up in space for the past week, I was giving away a metre of this... Continue reading

I haven't made it to one of Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Days for quite a while now, so I hope you'll forgive me if I'm a day late to this one! I bought this fabric a couple of years ago at a Knitting and Stitch Show, thinking I would make... Continue reading

Quilt making of a sort has continued to progress over the last week. I made a backing and went off to buy some cotton wadding... and then things kind of went mildly pear shaped and now there are two quilts! Well, I wasn't happy with the wadding (too thin) so... Continue reading

Makes a lovely stained glass curtain doesn't it? That was at lunchtime. Now it has a round of dark blue and I'm working on a second round of white, and then the top is done. Hurrah! What I failed to mention in the last post was that this was a... Continue reading

Can't believe I've actually made it to a Show and Tell Tuesday! I think the last time I managed to post on Randi's blog was about a year ago (sigh). Anyways, here's a sneak at a little bit of sewing I'm doing at the moment. Sorry, the photos aren't great... Continue reading

Hello! Gosh, so much time has passed and so much thinking about posts has been done, and where has it got me? I have a whole winter's saga of knitting to tell you about, but that will have to wait for next time. Today we're here for the Lanesplitter skirt.... Continue reading
