NICE AUTUMN

Nothing much going on this week. Running errands, doctor´s appointements,...
I had time to admire some trees in the neighbourhood and I hope to get inspired from their colours for some future projects.
Last week´s workshop on machine quilting went very well and we had much fun. So much fun that I forgot to take pictures!
Anyway I have finished Bea´s 9th BOM. I changed it a bit. I hope Bea won´t mind!

As I have a growing stash of scrap sock yarns, I started using them. First for a pair of
booties for a student of mine who is expecting. ( Don´t worry, I teach adults!)









Then some preemies´ hats and socks for a local hospital.
When I have more I intend to visit the hospital with my DS to bring them the socks. My DS was born there 8 years ago and he was a preemie too, so I thought that would be a nice idea to thank them for their care.


Now I am knitting some socks for my DH, who is quite a bit larger than a preemie and the socks are taking a bit more time.
After that I intend to go back to sewing and quilting. I still have some projects ( others would say UFOs!) which need looking after.

I wish you a nice autumn week.

OOOHHH, you are so kind! Amelie still has her knitted cardigan that she was given when she went to went to the special care unit and I am sure the new mums will love them, and with colors like these, they won't forget which one is their baby!!( the only problem is that it might keep them awake!)
Lots of love from Rainy England

That's a beautiful idea to take your ds back with the little socks and hats. Good for you.

Those little booties are precious, they certainly don't stay little long do they?

I posted photos of the jeans I repaired. They're not perfection, but I've learned embroidering over a hole is harder than it sounds!

Félicitations.Je trouve très bonne ton idée d'offrir ces petits chaussons et bonnets aux prémas mais les couleurs sont un peu trop vives à mon idée.Peut être que ce sont des couleurs mode.
Bisous et encore félicitations.

What a stirling idea. I am looking at my sock yarn remains and wondering what to do with them. They look absolutely beautiful.

I didn't notice anything different at first but then pulled up a pic of the pattern and see it now - I like yours better with the needle point away form the pillow.. aak that would be hard to have sweet dreams with a needle pointing at my head LOL ;)
