So as I was attempting to take a quick photo my vintage embroidered tablecloth was taking off and the next shot was as it landed in the cup of tea and I had to quickly rescue my pot incase it took off too!
Weather aside it has been a good month; what colour!
I've just loved enjoying all these! I've also had a successful making month. I have made:
My first quilt
a stuffed rabbit
2 easter hearts
1 needlecase and 3 pincushions
a knitted jacket for me
a knitted baby cardigan
An hyacinth cross-stitch
and almosts finished a baby sampler
Wow ...I'm impressed with the quantity even if the quality wasn't always quite there.
I've had two lovely weeks with Dan and Gemma and some lovely days out. So all in all great!! Hope May turns out as well.
So back to the wool. I came across a fair-isle jumper pattern and suddenly felt an urge to have a go. Now this is quite strange as the only fair-isle I have attempted before was a little smaller (and I seem to remember actually thinking I couldn't keep going for a whole adult garment). This is a pattern from the lovely http://www.maryjanestearoom.com/ (some of the loveliest photos on the internet).
