Now my latest finish is all in one piece I am not so confident.....

It changes depending on how strong the light is.

I try to never rework a quilt,

not too much anyway,

as I like serendipitous nature of how things turn out.

Might just stare at this for a while....

Good ideas

You start with what you think might be a good idea

but the execution seems to take forever.

I decided to sew the half-square triangles into blocks of four

and placed them randomly.

So far, so good.....

All advice welcome

I have started on a new piece,
or pieces,
depending on how many variations I try.
May be in the long run I am working in a series.
Anyway I am using indigo fabric from japanese futon covers.
I have done this before if you care to cast back over my indigo links.

I have made a good start with tons of half square triangles
but I am not sure how to proceed.
Stay tuned.....

It's always great when you finished a piece isn't it?

I like to have a few quilts in my stash, this one cot-sized.

And the back.....

Which way up?

All finished.

Funny how much more I like a quilt once it is finished

but up am not sure which way should be up?


And I like the back.....

Just look at that quilting.

Maybe it doesn't matter

beacause I like it slung over a chair as well.

The trouble with slow stitching

The trouble with slow stitching, that is my hand quilting,

is that it makes for very slow blogging.

I have finally finished the hand quilting on this piece.

So now it's just the binding.

Still not stitching

Much as I would like to

I have been unable to quilt lately

but I have been knitting.


I bought a new set of carbon fibre knitting needles for Christmas.

This is the first chance I have had to use them

and I am loving them.

And I have recently finished this cardigan in cotton.


Most recently we have been in Austin, Texas for a wedding!
