Ready for winter

I have been itching to crochet another scarf. A large one this time. Perfect for chilly winter mornings. Pattern is by b.hooked crochet. I used 480g of Bendigo Woollen Mills cotton yarn in parchment (pale cream). A neutral colour to go with anything

Getting bigger and bigger

I washed my scarf and then pinned it in place for blocking

My completed scarf drapes beautifully. It is so soft and warm! 

Do you have any fun projects on the go? Crochet, knit, sewing, embroidery, weaving, painting, etc. I would love to hear what you're creating

Have a beautiful Sabbath day, Julia xx

Happy quilt

I almost forgot to post a blog about my Happy Quilt. The name of this patchwork quilt came about via sweet comments from friends on Instagram. I posted a photo of the quilt top a month ago

Inspiration for the design of the quilt came from Karen at Pieces of Contentment and Rita at Red Pepper Quilts. My quilt is lightweight with a flannelette fabric backing. Perfect for Autumn or Spring. 

I used 81 different prints of quilting fabric including some organic cottons. White cotton fabric in between. I quilted wavy lines to hold the quilt top and back together. My first time trying free motion quilting. It's far from perfect. I have a lot to learn. 

Enjoy the photos. . .

Happy Thursday!

It's almost the weekend

Hope you have a great weekend, Julia xx
