Last year I was getting bored of single rows of colour in my knitting. I wanted to “shake things up” so I decided to do some colour-working. I realize this makes me a wild woman who you may be shy of associating with, but check out a few of the results.

The front panel is 100% cotton panel front and I used a blue checked flannel back and binding. I quilted a free motion loop with my long-arm quilting machine.

Changing It Up

I’m’ changing things up a bit on the blog. It’s been very difficult to write exciting craft blog posts and actually make my crafts. Going forward, I am going to share links to some amazing craft ideas I find on the internet.
