Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Knit, Purl etc.

Lots of little knitting has been happening here in the last week or two.  Having to be in different places and doing a bit of waiting around lends itself to having an easy carry project like knitting.

I have made several of these monkeys before from a Twins Knitting pattern.

I have been playing with different sized needles to alter the size of the softie.


This next little pink rabbit is another Twins pattern.

And another – this time a little soft lamb, a free pattern  from Barbara Prime.

Okay, that’s all the knitting done, but not the end of the softies.

I went to a class with Rosalie Quinlan and made a sweet little rabbit. The classes are at Patchwork with Gail B.

This is a Melly and Me pattern – Baby Bunnies.

And just to keep the Easter theme going, here is the felt penny rug I am working on for Easter.

This is from the same book as the Christmas one I made with Santa and trees.

The book is called Quick and Easy Penny Rugs.

I am still continuing to work on my crochet skills and made this little heart using a diagram rather than reading a pattern.  So many new things to learn!

We have a long weekend holiday here for Labour Day and the weather has decided some warmth and sunshine are in order.

Lots of time to relax and enjoy.

I hope your weekend has been wonderful, too.
