I know this looks like a tablecloth, but I had to put in on the table to show the contrast as our carpet is beige. It's the baby blanket I mentioned in my second post I started it a few weeks ago and I just finished it tonight. Obviously I haven't worked on it every day, but I'm pleased that it didn't take that long at all. I am fairly pleased with the end result although I had to tweak the pattern somewhat.
Here is a little more detail of the shell edging. I think this will look lovely wrapped around our little grandchild when it makes its earthly debut in a few weeks time! Can hardly wait.
I am taking a quilting class starting on Friday, so my next project involves the sewing machine. I am doing an easy quilting project called fun and done which you quilt as you go along. As I've never attempted quilting before I thought this was the best way! Rather than a full size quilt, I will make a table runner first and then when I've learned the process I can make a larger item.
Hope all of you in the UK are staying warm. You've had some really cold weather lately by UK standards. It all depends on what you're used to doesn't it? -7 degrees is fairly mild here in Ottawa, but I know in England that is pretty cold. I am an ex pat myself, so I do understand. My home town of Manchester is under a weather warning tonight as their snow is going to turn to ice. boy, do we know about freezing rain here in Ottawa!
Stay warm everyone!
