Yesterday I talked about the mittens I'm making. I guess some of you are interested in seeing them. This is a pattern I learned from my grandmother. Normally they're knitted in black and white yarn, but after a class with Kaffe Fasset I've given my mittens an extreme makeover. The yarn is a soft baby wool quality which can be washed in the machine and the needles I'm using are 3mm. You can check out the website to the company Dale
The weather hasn't improved much. When we woke up this morning, the ground was covered with a thin layer of snow, but that's all gone now. It's raining and the wind is blowing harder now than earlier this week.
Since this is a quilting blog, I should include pictures of a quilt or two. This is the most scrappy quilt I've done so far. All the fabrics are new, but I've only used swatches from Keepsake quilting. I think I've basted several hundred of this little pieces, and I plan to use them all and many many more for a quilt based on the mittens pattern. But before I can start on that, I have to handquilt two quite large quilts for an exhibition of my pictures and quilts I'm invited to give in the end of March. It's my first exhibition and I'm extremely excited and quite a bit nervous about it. The quilt on the picture is going to be showcased.
