I did sew last month's challenge but can't say that Seminole quilts are my favorite - still you always learn a few things along the way, so that's a bit of a consolation.
|Learnt a lot along the way|
I have also spent time watching the Olympics (which I am really enjoying) and knitting up the yarn I dyed with L If you remember we only dyed 50 gr. hanks and there's not a lot you can make with just 50 gr, but fingerless mitts work very well. All the patterns came free from Ravelry.... If you want patterns, Ravelry is a good place to look.

I had a trip back to Lichfeild and Spellbound beads 😱😱 gilts got me again. I bought mainly beads this time, and as soon as I got home I started playing. My sister in law S had bought a pattern for the Emperor bauble a couple of years ago at Alli Palli and neither of us could get our heads around it at the time, so it was pushed to the back of the pile and forgotten until this visit to the shop. I thought I would try it again as this is one of the patterns in the.book I bought. Would you believe it, this bauble is no more difficult than any of the others so I have been busy and started whipping up the tassels. I have to say I am really enjoying beading at the moment, even to the point of buying myself a new box to (hopefully) keep them all together
