Some Recent Finishes

A quick post to share some recent projects -


I finished up the table mat from my last post (I pieced the blocks on International Quilting Day). The mat is 12"x28", with 4" Courthouse Steps blocks. I went with this layout, although I preferred (as well other commenters from the las post) a different layout, but I realized it would be the same as the quilt on the couch -


I free motion quilted an all over meander design.

A couple of knitting finishes using yarn that I dyed and spun-



A sweater made with all kinds of fibre - linen, 2 breeds of wool, 2 types of silk, bamboo, alpaca and tencel. You can see more information and photos on the Ravelry page. This was my own pattern.


A simple cowl knit with silk and merino. The pattern is Botanical Cowl by Megan Goodacre, a free pattern on Ravelry.


I also finished weaving a piece of fabric that I plan on making a vest with - kind of scary cutting it up, but it should work! Technically not a finish yet. It is made with yarn that I dyed and spun also.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!♥︎

Totally in love with your mini courthouse steps, very sweet. So impressed you could die, spin and then weave your own fabric. Lovely colours.

You are so very talented to be able to do all that you do. Love the table runner; looks great on the wood chest.

Your log cabin runner is just perfect for the chest/coffee table. I am planning to start a log cabin soon but have to decide on the width of strips so I can draw out a design. I have a box of scraps that was given to me and the strips are not very wide.
