A Finish……or two…..

Last week I was a little bit productive……and it’s taken me a week to post about it!

The first finish is my first for this quarter’s FAL and it’s my Woolly Bits Block Book (say that three times quickly!!)

Last Wednesday evening I went with GJ to Sunspun (sporting my new Hitchhiker scarf!) for a crochet class with Raynor. Raynor is a great teacher, and such a sweet guy, very patient and very knowledgable. Sunspun has recently changed hands and changed its look to a bright, modern wool store. Under Raynor’s expert tuition we learnt how to read a graphic crochet pattern – sooo exciting!! – and crocheted up these pretty flowers!

I’ve been playing with fabric and blocks too and machine pieced this

It’s a glorious, sunny, Spring day; two loads of washing out and another lot ready to hang, so must away. Enjoy your day my lovelies!

    You’ve been so productive – and it is always inspiring to see what you make! Gorgeous block book and so thrilling to learn the crochet skill. It has been on my list for ages – I keep nearly booking in to a class …and then just get too busy. A graphic pattern looks fun.

  3. I think you are very productive, sewing, knitting and crochet, and you have made a nice job of them all. I really like your Woolly Bits Block Book and I can not say it fast!

    Thanks for the ‘heads-up’ about Sunspun! I must pop in for a visit soon! Does the hitchhiker scarf have a pattern? I would be interested in giving it a try. And your woolly bit block book is delightful! Very Spring like!

    Ah….Spring….my absolute FAVE season!!!! Your sweet little flowers would be the perfect finish on so many fun items!! And the piecing/wee flying geese are wonderful. Your season transition holds a bit more of the “pleasant promise” than ours, unfortunately (unless the winter snows truly beckon!). Hugs……………..

  7. I’ll simply say that I love it all!!
