Finished Swirls and Whirls

This baby quilt is for my girls' teacher's new baby boy. The pattern is on the cover of  American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I just use nine blocks instead so it's just nice size for the baby. The quilt measures    46 1/2" x 46 1/2"



I love the background fabric. It's called 'The ABC's of fleas by Alexander Henry, very cute!


Linking up with:

My very first pair of knitted socks


I had a plan to knit socks and bought a few knitted socks books too a few years back. Procrastinate a lot and never end up knitting it until now. They turn out ok and I really enjoy knitting them even though I had to unpick a bit 'cos one was shorter then the other.. lol!!  I think I was supposed to use Fingering weight yarn (4ply??) but these are knitted with 8ply. Turns out very thick but super-duper comfy and my daughter loves them :)


The pattern is called 'A Nice Ribbed Sock' by Glenna C. Free pattern is found here

Finished Summer Breeze

I'm in looove with this quit right now. So happy how it turns out. The pattern is called Summer Breeze by Melissa Corry at Happy Quilting. Happy Go Lucky fabric line is just perfect for this pattern. I chuck extra border in so it's measures 82"x82"

I FMQ it on my Bernina 750QE. Some pebbles and swirls. And some square in a square



Five meter backing isn't quite enough as I use some of it for the border. So this is how it turns out!



Dee Dee's quilt




This one goes to Dee Dee.





A Sewing Day

I had a sewing day at my place two Saturdays ago. It was good to catch up with my sewing ladies.
We stitch, sew, knit over coffee, tea and some cake and bikkies..

Some finished stuff

Happy Go Lucky Star quilt

Fabric line is Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille. The pattern is called The Stars in Mama's Kitchen by Darlene Zimmerman, free pattern is here.

The quilt measures 72"x72". I add more blocks than original pattern :))



I did some cross hatching in the middle and some stippling FMQ on the borders.


And a couple of Lacy Waves Ponchos





I bought this pattern a few years ago and have knitted many of them. When I feel I need to finish something quick after knitting some lacy shawls using 2ply yarn using 2.75mm needle with a thousand something yards of yarn, I always go back to this poncho. So quick to knit. This poncho is knitted using 80%Bamboo 20%Marino Wool on 8mm circular needles :)
