Starting to do my pincushion for my lovely swap partner (hence the sneaking little picture!). Off for a massage and facial this morning (Lucky me!), my belated Valentine's Day present. Then back to more of these....
Only 300 or so more to go. Thinking of buying a layer cake of Jelly roll of Kaffe to add more colours to it which I wouldn't normal buy. I'm open to suggestions.

I know you would have already have seen it, but for everyone else please go and have a look at this blanket. Now you know my love for hexagons, but we both saw how my attempt at crocheting went last time. And I know that the book is in Japanese, but I did do a few classes years and years ago, and I hoping it won't be that hard to translate (we can always use babelfish!). If you have not already worked it out I would really, really like you to make this for me!!!! Now I know my birthday is only a month away, but I am willing to wait a little longer for it, and we can go back to Sunspun and buy that pretty wool that we stood there and stroked last time.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Ms Rolling in Fabric.
Ps. Pretty, pretty please with a new knitting bag on top.
As promise a while ago, here are the pictures of my two latest quilts already to go to the quilters. I had thought about doing it myself, but after the trouble with DJ's I can't bring myself to have another go at it. The pattern on the left is called Daisy Chain from a book called Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott. I have made the border a little bigger just so it sits a bit nicer over a single bed. The quilt on the right I made up the pattern myself (and have just realised I have no sewn on the bottom row yet, ooops). It is the one I decided on Christmas eve eve that I just had to make! Still have not yet decided whether to put a border on it or not. Opinions please!
Trying something new for me, wool embroidery. I am having so much fun learning how to do this. And before anyone else asks, no I am not having a baby, no it is not for anyone special, it's just for me! (I think I have been asked everytime I have bought this out at work to do!)
This is the gorgeous vintage Semco doyles bag that I am keeping it in. 50cents was all I paid for it. I find it kind of sad that someone has put all this work into making and embroidery this bag and yet I can buy it for such a tiny amount.
