May Update

This past month I finished a few projects that had been in the works for a long time!

This is a Baby Jane (small Dear Jane) quilt that I started in 2012. I made blocks here and there, and finally decided that there was enough to make a wall hanging (I never had the intention to make the full size quilt). The blocks are about 4" and the quilt is 33"x39".

It fits perfect with the wall quilts in the sewing room.

These are small art quilts that I made in 2013 (I challenged myself to make a small art quilt every month for a year - each one reflects something that happened that month). They sat on a shelf for years. I always intended to make something with them, and I finally figured out what to do them. 

I used wire and beads to join them together into a wall hanging (there is lots of wall space in my new sewing room/craft room/weaving studio/happy place...).

Next are a couple of more recent starts-

I wove a piece of fabric out of mainly handspun yarn. - silk, linen and merino, along with some silk ribbon that I had dyed.

I sewed the fabric into a poncho. More details on my Ravelry page

Finished another pair of socks - with handspun yarn too.

All the best!♥︎

You have such a wide range of talents Joanne! Your Baby Janes is lovely and does fit in perfectly with the others on the wall! So pleased to hear you have lots more wall space as that wall almost looks full :-) Great idea with the art quilts too. The yarn combination for the poncho sounds fabulous and it would have made a nice weight of fabric - a between seasons weight? And gorgeous socks too - well done with the colour graduations!

Look at that wall! I really like your mini quilt display - they're lovely and beading is a nice touch. Good stuff!
