What have you all been making...part two...

Recommended Posts

I think I may actually have enough.  Just sewing the blocks in strips now - and on the last one . . . where's that last block gone?  ARGHHH!  All counted and matched and one has gone awol!  But here is as far as I got when I was on retreat.  The pics don't do the colours any justice at all.

It's a lot easier than the last one I took.  I managed to get a decent sized lap top before I left, I've added bits since to make it bigger.  I think I need more practice at sewing bulky seams - my machine doesn't like keeping straight seams when I do those and I end up frogging a lot!  Rippit rippit!

I'm having a go at knitting a jumper but because I hate sewing I'm having a go at knitting a jumper in the round from the neck down. So far I've done the yoke which fortunately already has the shape of a yoke. So far so good. I'm curious how the sleeves get knitted in. I found the pattern online and I don't like the sleeves which in the picture dangle loosely at the elbow. I figure it can't be difficult to just knit them longer and do a cuff?!?! 🤔

Wow it's amazing!  

Do you work with short lengths like willow weaving?  It must be so difficult.  Well done 🤩

No, I used long and fairly random lengths of 'rusted' wire from a roll. I used a technique that uses cable ties to secure things in the early stages. They are then removed and replaces with fine wire to secure any necessary areas. I never thought I could achieve something like this. I am creatively challenged!

Wow, the wire chicken is amazing, you are very talented.   I have just been paper piecing xmas cards ( a first for me and I love it) table runners, triangular pouches and tissue holders for Xmas, oh and kitchen towel hangings with t towels and pot holders ( bought in America last week).  Also microwave bowl cozies.  My patchwork has gone out the window right now.

It's very addictive Blackie!  And so versatile!

I agree Plum - we have a humble artist in our midst!  LOL!

I love your chicken Chucky Mama 👏

Very clever.

Did you get sore hands ?

I once made a tiny basket with willow withies and it made my hands really sore - haven't made another basket since 🙂

A weekend that was well worth it I'd say.

Might have to see if anywhere near me does that kind of thing.

The Phoenix is where I go to paint every week!  What a small world, Chucky Mama.  If you saw the chickens running around, the young bantams are the offspring of my chickens!

Precious little one.  The blanket is lovely, that will be his heirloom he'll grow with it.
