Daylight Saving Sunday
Although I'm not at all happy with the tension on my Pfaff and the poor job made of servicing it, I'm attempting to complete "Summer in Provence" to take as my quilt for the tutors' exhibition at Symposium There is now a mere 15 days until I leave, and I also have some assignments to complete in that time, so sewing time is limited. I've decided to quilt the rust-dyed centres in a stones pattern. No thoughts yet on what design to use for the block borders. Any suggestions?
Of course, I'm always knitting something. Purple fingerless gloves, just a plain design, to go with the purple hat. A matching cowl is on the needles.
As is this feather and fan scarf, made with 50/50 merino and silk.
