Busy hands

Gail’s and Rae’s quilts might have been the only finishes at our English Quilt group get-together last week, but on the other side of the room there were more works-in-progress.

Robbie was starting to knit the very nifty Alexandria cowl. I might just try one of these next winter – all the warmth of a scarf/shawl without having to continually stop it unraveling or slipping off my shoulders.


Lyn’s tea leaf blocks were coming together in a leisurely fashion (and isn’t that what its all about?), piece by piece using her chosen Aunt Grace fabrics in delicate pastels.


Anne’s Laurel’s Stars medallion quilt, a Lynne Alchin pattern, has gone from this…


…to this.


OK, she’s only added a few more stars, but Anne has been very busy with a brand new little granddaughter - as has Robbie!


Anne also brought along a very special “show and tell” - the christening gown she made for her firstborn daughter, which was also worn by the second, and has now become a family heirloom, worn by her each of grandchildren.


Plenty of creative inspiration in our past and present projects!



I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
