I am currently working on a baby quilt using a lovely, very easy to follow pattern I found on project12quilts.com It is on the list of free patterns.( on the right ) Little Leapfrog. The pattern was designed by Janeen Getz. Thank you Janeen.
This little owl fabric is the only pictorial fabric I am using. It has the colour palette I am using.
These fabrics I am very happy with.
The other 3 I need might come from this group below, but I am not sure about them
I might go back to the cupboard and pull out some more.
I have made the pieced blocks in the owl fabric and the beautiful turquoise blue and am doing the green spot now.
The binding will be the blue, I have lots of it. I think the white background fabric will make it look light and bright.
I am also knitting a blanket . The pattern is in a Debbie Bliss book Eco baby. Hers done in cotton, mine in wool . Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, which is soft and snugly.
It is a simple block pattern with a twisted 2 stitches between the change. The colour is a bit more green than it shows here. I am 3/4 finished as it is easy knitting with rows of 166 stitches - they only just fit on the needles.
Every day we have families of quail walk across the garden. Yesterday we counted 89. ( some of that number here ) It's not easy to get a photo without disturbing them.
We had our first light frost this morning but it is now a clear although crisp sunny morning.
