This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Link to My Other Blog

After I began this blog on Blogger I started another blog on Wordpress, however I have returned to my original one after a gap of three years. There is a lot of crazy quilting and fabric postcard stuff on my other blog as well so here is the address which will have to be cut and pasted into your browser as the link doesn't work.

The Quilt part of the Quillow.

Close-up of Jesse's Quillow

These photos show close-ups of the quilt part and the pillow part separately.

Jesse's Quillow for Christmas

I had planned to make four quillows for Christmas, one each for my two eldest grandchildren and one each for their step-brother and sister. Before we went away for three months, I pieced the four tops(therefore all UFOs) and yesterday I finished the first one. This is for Jesse who will five years old on December 1st and who is into trucks, bobcats and any other construction vehicles. First photo is the quillow itself with close-ups of the the quilt part and the pillow part.

First and Second UFOs finished in November

When we got back from our UK holiday the first thing I noticed was that everywhere I looked were before I start any new projects I decided to tackle the UFOs (un-finished objects). The first one was to complete a jumper and beanie for grand-daughter Juliet for next Winter. I'd started the jumper in England so it seemed the logical thing to finish that first. I bought some variegated wool at Abakhan in North Wales and thought I would have a mixed bag of cream, pink, green and lemon colours but much to my surprise it knitted itself into a sort of a pattern which I love.
