My Creative Space


























I





The battle is still on! My brain versus fabric, not working so well together, constructing my inaugural disnumeric quilt. I have decided to make a little cot sized version to check if I can do the machine  quilting myself using a darning foot.  Personally, I think it will be a disaster but who am I not to give it a try. 

And I had three projects on the knitting needles this week, one of which I finished yesterday. Made with the most exquisite yarn, Tahki Rio in Fog. I had to have some of this stuff. It's soft as a cloud and completely delicious. I was after a simple cowl so I just cast on 140 stitches with a size 8 circular needle and knitted until there was no more of the stuff to knit. I used two skeins in total. Now I really want to make a very wide chunky cowl and looking at the sky outside I think I could make one for myself and still use it this year.

More spaces here!

Your images are all divine. And I say keep going with the fabric. And good luck with the darning-foot quilting... sounds interesting... what is a darning foot?!
