I have also received my Tote Swap bag. It's a lovely little felted bag, which can be seen here, and arrived packed with a multitude of goodies.
As this knitting adventure is finished, I've signed up for another one. This time it's Lace - the Mystery Stole 3. New things for me include very fine yarn, and following a large chart. I've had several thoughts of quitting, but think I've solved my problems now. I can only work on it when the children are entertaining themselves, and when I'm not tired or mentally subpar. Oh, and when there's no sport on the television.
I've been spending some time making a 'Blanket of Love' for the Down Under Quilts competition. Here's a sneak peek;
Popular themes on Blankets of Love are hearts, rainbows, butterflies, and flowers. My daughter Nalani spent her life wrapped in a blanket of love, and I wanted the one I made to capture my feelings at that time. So no hearts or flowers. This has also meant that making the quilt is a very slow process.
