a sparkly finish

I finished the sparkly baby quilt this week. I kept the quilting to a minimum with just a bit of echo quilting round each of the stars.

 I did break out the orange thread and hand stitch around all the little stars. The stitches are by no means perfect but I think they are pretty.

We have sun here for the first time in months so we are off for ice cream at the beach. I have been converted to the Finnish belief that ice cream tastes better eaten in the snow,  after all at least it doesn't melt!
Happy sewing

woolly grannies

I have been working on my crochet grannies this week. I finally had enough squares and I have been gradually attaching them. They went together really quickly. Weaving all the ends in however seems to have been a mammoth task! I snipped my last end this morning and am in love.

It is so warm and snuggly! 

I think there might be fights over this one, even my husband has his eyes on it!

Hope you are all keeping warm
