My first project was simple: bias binding, then sew it onto my favorite 'blankie'.
I bought some leather machine needles because my next project will be a simple little purse made from hair-on leather. Leather that I've also had my eye on for a loooong time, but being sold in the US, I had to wait until I got here. And, I'm planning on making a bright and simple quilt for our own bed in pastels: blue, coral, grey, yellow, white.
My machine needs a pretty quilted cover too, so I might have a go at paper piecing with a pattern or two of Juliet's, The Tartan Kiwi. I really like the Swallow or the Tomtit, but I wonder if there is a better one to sew for a beginner paper-piecer?
I've been knitting cushion covers. I love how quickly these knit up on my 12mm circular, pretty, green, aluminium needles. I love the simplicity of the knitting texture.
A GIANT blanket, oh-so-soft, and in the photo, unfinished. I finished it last night and will be listing it in my shop once I get a couple of pretty photos of it. The pattern for this is designed by Goodknits and can be found here to purchase. She has designed quite a few really pretty patterns!
