Last week we went to see Fleetwood Mac in concert! It was fabulous, and a dream come true for me.
|sorry - not the clearest picture|
This month's art quilt has a line from my favourite song - "Landslide".
The fabric is a piece of my hand dyed fabric, that I painted before quilting, and then added some more details with paint, pearl cotton and beads after machine quilting. It is 6" x 8"
The stack of art quilts are growing, and I think I have figured out how to "bind" them together in to a book - I plan on attaching a couple of metal loops of the side, and stringing a ribbon through them. I will also make a front and back cover for the book.
I also finished a few other things -
This is a scarf from the Craftsy class Explorations in Brioche Knitting. I made it from Merino wool that I spun.
Surprisingly I made something practical too - my youngest asked me to make him a pair of pyjama shorts (made out of leftover quilting flannel though, at least they are just one colour - he was happy).
I have another knitting project on the go - this is a top down seamless sweater - a really lovely way to make a sweater because you can try it on as you go. I am knitting it in the round with interchangeable needles (mine are Addis Turbo), the needle for the right hand is the proper size for gauge, but the needle for the left hand is a smaller size so that the stitches slip over easily as a I knit (I tend to knit tight and this has made a big difference).
Things are finally starting to grow around here - tulips are blooming, trees are budding and hopefully it will get warmer!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!♥
