We’ve been doing a fair bit of driving to get to all the appointments and things that we need to do, so I’ve been knitting in the car.
I finished this little cardigan. It’s been posted to charity.
Earlier this week I was in a fabric store finding quilting thread for a quilt in progress (I have to plan in advance so brought the blocks with me to match). Gorgeous Girl asked if she could make another quilt. So we discussed what pattern she wants to make – she said squares and rectangles. I immediately thought of one of Kate’s latest finishes. We won’t be making one this big though… I told Gorgeous Girl she could pick two patterns and one plain fabric (we will also dig through the stash once we’re home to see what else will work). She created quite a stir wandering around choosing her fabric.
This was her selection in the end.
Not necessarily the colours I would have chosen, but it’s not my quilt. I will do the cutting for her, (because as talented as she is, 5 year olds don’t get to play with rotary cutters) and she will do the piecing. She does know that she needs to finish her first quilt before starting a new one :) I’m all for starting good habits young.
