I’ve got a rotten head cold.
I thought I might share that with you.
Haven’t sewn a stitch therefore. Have sat in a quiet corner and knitted some lovely cables. I find when I have a head cold, sitting quietly in the corner, with a nice movie and some knitting works wonders. It’s almost medicinal. Medicinal knitting. I like the sound of that.
A few weeks ago I showed you my Nancy Halvorsen stars. You’ll be pleased to know that it too is finished.
I’m thrilled to bits with this one. I was going to add another border around the outside as I had more precut squares to use up but I think this is just lovely as it is. And it’s huge. I’m going to bind it in black and call it done.
I’m unsure why I’m leaning towards black homespun in things at the moment. I’ve another quilt on the go that also uses black homespun. I think it must be because we are heading into winter (though someone forgot to tell Mother Nature, it’s been spring weather all week long here).
It was a ridiculously easy quilt to make, and I’ll type up some instructions when my head clears a little.
Do you like it? I’m more than a little pleased with it, to be honest. I think it’s destined to be a quilt we might actually use, rather than another flimsy in the cupboard. We’ll wait and see.
