I have also crocheted a cushion for the nursing chair which compliments the quilt beautifully. I added vintage buttons to give it a little style.
It is now bound with some natural twine and finished off with a painted and stamped bear as a tag.
I have also made a start on a couple of cowls for the Granddaughters in preparation for next Winter. I have not had idle hands I am just not working on what I was supposed to.
Your time will come oh beautiful throw, you will not languish in the craft room forever. I WILL make a concerted effort to finish you, but I need something small and transportable to take with me as I once again pop down to Norwich to be with my daughter whilst we wait for our new Grandson to arrive. I leave tomorrow so will not be around for a little while.
I am linking to Jennifer over at Thistlebear for the Winter link up party, pop over and catch up with everyone's progress.
See you soon.
Sometimes our plan doesn't go quite "according to plan", but still crafting gets done and eventually beautiful things ARE finished.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the journey!
P.S. The new baby quilt is adorable!
What a beautiful quilt and pillow you are very talented xxxReplyDelete

That new baby quilt is beautiful! Your colour choices are great, they'll be so pleased with it.ReplyDelete
Don't beat yourself up about your projects. Would you prefer you weren't inspired to work on anything and had a completely dry spell? I think you're doing great :D
Beautiful gifts for the imminent arrival. You're not alone in neglecting winter projects for others, it seems to be a common occurrence. I'm sure you'll get there in the end.ReplyDelete
