Little Blocks into Big Blocks

All the little blocks for the Secret Santa Sew Along from the Temecula Quilt Company blog are getting sewn together -

Four blocks so far, and eight left to sew. There is still one clue left, so I hope I don't spoil anything, but it is starting to look a lot like a Burgoyne Surrounded quilt - one of my favourites!!

I spun a skein of yarn this week. This is wool from a raw fleece that I was given.

The fleece was so fine, but full of plant bits, so I only managed to comb a small amount. There is still lots of vegetable matter in it, but it is so soft (unusually compared to the other raw fleeces I was given). I plan to dye this and knit a cowl. It is 121g and 427m of fingering weight yarn.

Now for some snapshots of home -

Christmas lights are up.
We have been having so much fun skating!
Grey Partridges running around.
The mink posed for the camera.
All the best!♥︎
