This week has been quite busy and that´s why I did not post earlier.

In between I could squeeze some sewing and I made a little purse/pouch for my mum. She wanted one for a project at her quilt group. I hope she likes it.
As the weather is still so cold (see the snow in the background!) I did some knitting too. Another top-down cardigan with no sewing involved, apart from the buttons. I found the pattern in a knitting magazine called knit.1. I have some yarn left and so I am knitting a slouch out of it from the same issue. I am knitting some socks too from that magazine so you could say it was worth the buy!

I will show pictures of those 2 projects next time.

I dyed some more yarn too. I tryed to get more masculine colours this time, except of course for the purple/orange one!
Tomorrow I will give a workshop on machine quilting and I hope to show the results next time too.
In the meanwhile I wish you all a nice week-end.

The teacup zipper bag is so cute! Is that a commercial pattern? Very nice work on the sweater, also.

Oh your pouch for your mom is wonderful! I love it!

Fabulous sweater . . . . if I ever attempted such a feat, one sleeve would end up miles longer than the other and I probably wouldn't be able to get it over my head *s* I love seeing what you make.

That cardigan is seriously beautiful. Love love love it! The pattern and the colour. Wow. And how cute is that tea pot purse. You are so clever. Had a giggle at the tea bag label.

Your sweater fits you beautifully and your yarn is gorgeous!

Such a cool purse. I have some of the fabric you have used in the bottom section. I used some of it in my latest quilt.
