Woohoo! Miss Maisie finally has her new sweater. I hate sewing up knitting but was fairly pleased that this went together well. The pattern is Sirdar no. 6021 and named Sailing Sweater. It is knitted in baby cashmere merino silk dk. Extravagant for a baby but it feels beautiful, soft and warm. I changed the pattern a little bit as the sleeves and cuffs are meant to roll up but I like something more firm. Would love a big girl version, lipstick pink.
Little miss has had her first taste of baby rusk. Listening to her approving noises made us all laugh. No problem feeding this baby. Here she is modelling her new sweater. Poor little lovie is teething so don't be fooled by that sweet face because she will bite your face off if she gets close enough.
Sewing progress. Piles of hexagons in readiness for filling in around the Anna Levens quilt.
This star block has been paper pieced and is my contribution to our group raffle quilt. This year we are supporting Alzheimer's UK.
My husband bought me a huge bunch of tulips and the colours are beautiful and are a welcome pop of colour against the greyness of our continuing awful weather. I know many of you have seen it on the news worldwide and it has been as bad as it looks. Thankfully where I live we have not been affected but it is very sad for those who have. It seems Mother Nature is getting her wires crossed with the weather or she is very cross with us.
Stay safe wherever you are and whatever your weather is doing, retreat indoors and stitch, watch the winter Olympics. Worth it for the glimpses of quilts everywhere.
