I'm a stay at home mum with two children living in Perth (Australia). I have a small business making personalised childrens T-Shirts and I'm planning on expanding into the machine embroidery market. I plan to write about my various sewing exploits in this blog.
I’m back onto my sampler quilt (started in 2013!). I am joining the blocks now (using multiple zig-zag stitch). Once all of the blocks are joined, I will make bias binding strips and cover the stitching.
I have been (unusually) a monogamous knitter. I started working on this blanket in early December and apart from a brief flirtation with my November sock (while I was on Rottnest Island) I have knitted only this.
This is all garter stitch and it is easy to get into a lovely rhythm and just want to do ‘one more row’.
I have been watching television series
Bridgerton – is anyone else watching this? It is beautiful. I read The Duke and I in preparation, but I need to read the other seven novels in the series.
I wanted to make something that my girls could keep to remember me by if the worse happens. I decided on the Moderne Log Cabin from the Mason Dixon knitting book. I am using shades of blue and cream from Bendigo Woollen Mills – it is the classic 8ply (I wanted something that could be machine washed).
I am using 4mm needles (an addi circular one).
I picked the stitches up on the edge using the Yarn Harlot’s tutorial – I did knit into the back of each stitch once I had picked them all up.
