This weeks activities

I have been a busy bee all week, as you know on Monday I completed my Marmalade diamonds quilt.

I was asked by a friend (before Christmas) to make her my Hooterville owl quilt to give her sister when she has a baby, so I had to get a move on with that.  So here is the beginning, 16 appliquéd owls – I still have to give them eyes and feet.  This will be the third version of this quilt that I have made.

I have also done some knitting on the cowl scarf that I am  making myself and here is how that it looking.  I actually got quite a bit done, and then counted the stitches and realised that it got narrower and narrower and I had lost about 15 stitches, so I had to unpick a good 20cm or so.

My daughter has put her order for one in a rust colour way, so that on my list

There was also a lovely surprise waiting for me when I got home yesterday, a table runner from Jan in my table runner swap.  I am lucky and have two partners in this swap.  Look at the stunning grey and yellow contemporary runner Jan made for me, I think it looks great on my coffee table.
