Birthdays And Bertie.

Posted on | April 26, 2016 | 15 Comments

The second Bertie block has been completed and I have prepared the third, ready for stitching.

I am enjoying working with the wool and it has also made me realise where the gaps are in my stash. That’s a good thing because now I can focus on the colours and patterns I need rather that random buying.

Our run of birthdays for grandchildren continues. Our youngest turns one this week but we all caught up over the weekend to celebrate. I enjoy having the opportunity to make these fun items for our grandies.

There was a fox theme going on with the cushion that I made and a knitted softie.

There was a lot of knitting happening with a knitted hat next.

And then some knitted fruit!

Adding to the food theme, some felt fruit and veg.

There are a few quiet months and then we have another birthday rush in August and September.

That may give me a chance to get back to some quilting.

I hope your week has started well.

Cheers, Karen

    Goodness, you have been busy Karen! Love the fruit and vegetables, both knitted and felt! And your wool project is coming along so well! There is something very satisfying about blanket stitch. I used it when I added feet to my blue wren yesterday.

    I love the fox theme, it seems to really be in style now. I’ve seen heaps of different items in this theme….and I love it, so cute. The colour you’ve knitted the beanie in is sweet and your block is gorgeous. Looks like you’ve been keeping out of mischief. lol
