Things are getting repetitive here:

Yet another picture of my confetti blocks. I want to add one more row and then I can start thinking about the border.

These are the second pair of mits I knitted for my sister as she lost the first ones!

And this afternoon I made some jam like last year at the same time. This is pumpkin, vanilla and caramel (that´s just because the sugar burnt a bit!). It tastes nice though.
I ordered some wool from the UK so that I can dye and spin more. So expect some colours in the next post!

I wish you a nice week.

I enjoy seeing your quilt top. No problem with another view.
The mitts are very nice. We have no need for such an item where we live but I do like seeing the items others make.

Hello, what lovely mits, I do hope they are for me !! I have found two patterns of hats I like. The "beaufort " on Knittitude and "Robin's egg blue hat ". I think the turquoise blue is quite nice actually and it would go lovely with a knitted flower brooch !! You did want christmas presents ideas !!

Lots of love from cold England

I'm still completely in love with your confetti blocks! This will be such a gorgeous quilt! Look forward to seeing what you come up with for borders.

Lucky sister getting a second pair of mits - they are beautiful, and looks very comfy.

Love your quilt taking shape! That is a favorite pattern of mine. And your mitts are so pretty.

I enjoy seeing your quilt come together and the mitts look very warm.

Will you share your jam recipe? I've never heard of pumpkin jam, but it sounds delicious.

Dear Gwen, You are on no reply so I couldn't email you back after you left a comment. I am so happy to find your blog! I don't knit, but your quilts look like ones that I would make.
The hand painted doors are in the style of Quimper, founded in Brittany! I wish I would have gotten more photos but they were buried a bit behind a lot of other doors and wood.
