I have so many projects on the go it is making me stressed.
I don't know why.
I should be relaxed, all this creating.
I made this little doll.
I just had to, I already had one but I gave it away
so I needed another.
I used my old kimono fabric for her body, kimono lining for her dress
and darning wool for her hair.
Who darns anyway? Me!
You know when you have finished a quilt and you have off-cuts of batting from the edges?
I hate wasting things:
so I cut it into tiny pieces and used it for stuffing.
She's all cotton.
Just as Spring seems to be breaking out I finished my gloves.
I needed black ones.
I use old tortoise-shell knitting needles (size 13) but one snapped
so I had to change to another pair (bamboo)
but I think they may have been a bit bigger.
I am the only one who knows....
And I finished this as well.
It has been on the go for quite some time...
I had hand quilted the pieced blocks and was going to use a stencil to mark a pattern on the plain block.
I tried many different pencils and markers
(and they don't let you try before you buy)
and none showed up sufficiently well over the fabric pattern.
In the end I have quilted around the flowers
and I quite like that embossed sort of look.
I am quite pleased with myself.
Now only a couple of hundered other UFOs.
