Our monthly gathering bought a couple of newbies along which was great and with only eleven of us there today the noise level was just the same as with double that number... gosh SCQuilters have a lot to say!!
I am very impressed with myself with the re knitting of this jumper I made David 44 years ago! The back is finished and the front started... the thing that impresses me the most is the fact that even though I found the old pattern I only need it for the number of stitches and the shaping of sleeves and so on... I know by the look and feel what stitch I need to do next! Who would have thought, after 44 years... I still have a memory! :-)
I think this lovely WIP is a Karen Cunningham, bought to us today by new SCQuilter Sharon, from Dublin - oh what a beautiful accent.
Just to show you what my group did for the exhibition; and the ceiling in Madrid cathedral that was the starting point. I gave all the girls a copy of the strip, with the triangles carefully marked out, and the edges etc. I gave them calico to trace it onto, and freezer paper to make templates, and the two green fabrics, as all the strips had to have the identical triangles. The other half was at their imagination.
