So this weekend, with Will away in Norway and no baby sitting duties I eventually got round to doing the sample quilt. I am just realising how methodical I am and I hope to be share that with the class next week.
Might I just add that I am sitting in extra warm woolies as the central heating boiler is on the blink and a new part won't be here to fix it until Tuesday morning. No heating or hot water. Thank goodness for quilts!
So when I start I clear surfaces, get all the kit out ready - scissors and pins by the machine, ironing board up. I cut out the pieces, then I mark any pieces that need doing
But you'll have to wait until next weekend to see the finished result. I've pieced all the rows and have three of the eight rows sewn together but it's dark now. No mistakes so far and I put that down to working really methodically, cutting marking, stacking and pressing - no madness, no unpicking, just method.
I've been crocheting away at night after work but the Crochet-Along is at week four now and I have just finished the stripes for week one. I love it so much.
I especially love the limey green and soft heather colours together. They make me want to sing with the sheer joy of colour. The little markers are placed every ten stitches so that I never lose count of the pattern. It doesn't feel like extra work it's all part of my methodical approach. It's all part of the rhythm and process which I love.
