More Mini Patchworks!

Have been busy making 2 more mini patchworks for my dear friend Paula, have now finished them and they will be making their way to Scotland next week!

They do take a long time to make as I still make them the old fashioned way, cutting squares then cutting papers and tacking the papers in the squares then sewing them all together and taking the tacking and papers out (not my favourite job!) and then backing and binding them.  I do think they are very cute though, each square is approx 0.75cm and it takes an average of 170 to make a single sized quilt!  Now that's a lot of hand sewing!

And here they are!

Should really be starting Lake View now, but it's still sitting in the cupboard!  My excuse is I need the kitchen table tomorrow for a family Sunday dinner lol.

Still haven't done anything with Beacon either, but lack of funds is stopping that.  Oh I wish I was rich!

Anyway I had bought some wool a while ago and am knitting a teddy (full size) at the moment, now I never know how they are going to turn out, so time will tell!

That's about it for now, back to the knitting, it's quite nice to be able to do something without having to wear my glasses, that's the good thing about full size stuff, not quite so reliant on glasses!
