Some 'Silly Stitching'
Note to self


The Wessex Stitchery progresses slowly.  (Count 3 up, 3 over, 3 down.)

The knitted shawl is finished but I don't think I will use this yarn again.  The colours were wonderful but the spinning of the yarn is uneven and for the price I paid not good value.  The feel of silk and wool is nice against the skin and I know I will use it.

The children's quilt is all finished along with the pillows and stacked ready to pack for postage.

I made a storage bag for the quilt.  I like to have a bag I can store my quilts in for the summer.

I am quite happy with this finished quilt.  It is a good size and the cushions are an added extra.  It will brighten up a child's room.

This was originally for my grand daughter who said "it isn't pink" when I showed it to her.  So the name has stuck.

Looking at the bundle of quilt tops I have in the cupboard I think I will just keep quilting till I get the back log under control.

It isn't pink, but it is colourful, cheerful and will shine in any child's room.
What a smart idea to make bags for storing the quilts in.


It's gorgeous, and will definitely cheer up a room!

I have always made a bag to go with each quilt I make. I usually use up all the scraps I have left over. This time it was a couple of fat quarters. I find they are great to store the quilt over the summer months and the quilt is easy to locate when you need it.
