QUILTED!




One less Ufo on the shelves (or rather on the pile on the floor beside the shelves!).







Last week I finished quilting my scrappy star quilt and sewing on the binding.




And the result is an autumn quilt ready on time for some afternoons on the terrace.



Last thursday was our monthly quilt group meeting and we were lucky to have one of the authors of that book as guest. She had plenty to show us and we went home full of ideas.

At the moment I am knitting socks for my dear sis (yes, the one who said "knitted socks, no thank you, never!). Well, she changed her mind and wants some knee socks in cream with a lot of fancy stitches. I can tell you, knie socks are VERY long! Let´s see what I will manage this week apart from that.


I wish you a nice week.
