Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Many Colours.

While it has been cold outside, I have made the most of having my Harbour Blanket on my lap so I could finish the borders. This is a design from Attic 24. It is quite large. This is a double bed. I had a laugh when I saw this photo. The edges look so uneven. […]

A Finished Blanket.

This is another of my projects that was so close to a finish and was then put away due to distractions of my own making. I had made the large mandalas and had pieced them together, but knew I had to make smaller sections to fill the gaps. It took me a while to play […]

Yarning Away.

Lots of little yarn projects have been worked on and some have even been completed. This little doll is a pattern from Mary Jane’s Tearoom and is called simply a Little Yarn Doll. A lovely pattern to follow and lots of variations included. I have kept to the basics for the first one, giving her […]

Easter, Yay!

We are having a gorgeous Easter long weekend with beautiful sunny days. Even the resident magpie family agree and have been out and about checking out the Autumn foliage. Easter decorating has been happening and there are a couple of new additions. A little crochet bunny. And a new hoop embroidery. This is a Kathy […]

Lots Of New Starts.

Time to work out what to make next, so I have been trying out a few patterns to see if they are what I want. So, lots of new starts. I started with a test block using the Tula Pink pandas. It was a bit fiddly finding the right size to cut the centre block […]

Getting Projects Moving.

Happy February. The year is moving along. I have been working on several projects and they are close to a finish. I am also spending a lot of time getting the preparation work done for a few more. The trees for The Avenue are completed and are ready to come together. I played with several […]

Happy January 2022.

January is such a great time to be outdoors, but it does mean I forget to blog. Our weather has been mild so far with only a few really hot days, so the garden often calls. But, I have been caught up at times watching the cricket, and now the Australia Open, so some stitching […]

A Bit Of A Yarn.

Plenty of yarn being used in these projects. It’s a bit of a mixed bag. I have been making a few bits and pieces for gifts and have accumulated a little collection. Most will be baby gifts. I am sure most of you have seen the octopus toy with the curly tentacles that bubs love […]

A Little Crochet Project.

Sometimes it is good to have a yarn project on the go as well as stitching ones. This is a lap size crochet project that I have been working on when watch TV. I can’t seem to watch TV without having something like this on the go. This has used the African flowers design in […]

Wool And More Wool.

Working with wool is a delight in Winter. It always feels cosy and warm. First up is another knitted finish. This is a cardigan for our granddaughter. This is made with a wool from Bendigo. I sent a photo through to her when it was finished and had a selection of buttons grouped by colour […]
