I've Been Keeping Busy

It's hard to believe that more than a month has passed since I last posted, sorry about that. I have been keeping myself busy with sock knitting and quilting 2 quilts for a friend. I will post some pictures when I finish the binding.

I'd like to introduce Jonathon Jack, for a short time in the years before quilting I made bears. I made a bear for each of my daughters and nieces. After that the novelty of making bears wore off. JJ is the only bear I kept for myself, most people think he is very ugly but I think he has a charm all of his own.
Below are a couple of blurry pictures of the socks I've just finished.

Last week I went away for a few days to Phillip Island. It was one of our sewing getaways. This is the result of 2 days of concentrated sewing. We had most of the blocks cut before we left. The pattern is featured on the front of Homespun Magazine, No. 70, Vol 10 and the pattern is by Keryn Emmerson. A great pattern to use up the stash. The only fabric I had to buy was for the dark cornerstones and the first border. I still have to add the borders.

Hello to all the followers of my blog!

A lovely quilt - will have to make myself one - don't you just hate it when you get new projects and you're not even looking.
