Small and big finishes :-)



I so love every design from Anni Downs, Hatched and Patched,  and this little sewing caddy was so much fun to make :-)
You can find the pattern in her latest book, The Story of My Day.



2 weeks ago I went down with the worse cold of the decade, and I did not have strength to do much more than coughing for several days.
Many hours were spent under a quilt, napping and watching mindless TV.

I knew I were on the mend when I could hold my knitting for a couple of hours a day.
Knitting with variegated thread always spurs me on, as I so enjoy seeing how the patterns and colours comes to life.
My dishcloths are in great demand - that is a very good thing, so I can knit more.
I love the lace patterns the best, but this pattern called Cupid's Arrows also turned out nice.
The design is by Bittami.




My favourite aunt is 75 years old today, and this is our gift to her!
I so enjoyed making her this lap quilt and I hope she will use it a lot, both indoors and outdoors.
Merete machine quilted this quilt for me with a nice flower pattern all over.




I so enjoy making these plus blocks for plus people in my life, so after 2 quilts I am still not bored.
I have another plus quilt on my to do list in the foreseeable future :-)




- Wishing you perfect moments wherever you are -
