Plodding along

The last thing I said on my last post was that I was going to sit in front of the fire and finish my socks.

Well here they are, not had their first wash yet but very toasty. They look very pink in this photo, in fact the wool was bought for Mr M, as he only wears red socks, but when it arrived from the 
Natural Dye Studio it did indeed tend to lean towards the pink side of red, if you know what I mean. So they are now mine.. I could have been a little influenced  by the name of this wool. It was called "Combe Martin"and as you in the family know we used to live there..

My Alphabet piecing block for February is done, just the buttonhole stitching to do around the letters. I have to get my trusty old Bernina out to do that.

 All the quilting is done on the Mystery Quilt, but no photo as yet. I do need to take that in the daylight, when it finally stops raining.

All the appliqué shapes are cut out for my hand turned BOM, stems done, and now on the leaves and it is looking OK..

 I am sorry, I forgot to give you the last two drawings for the Elfin Way Quilt. So here they are.
I did however embroider "Elfin Way" between these little terraces of houses.

Back to the appliqué BOM, then to cast on another pair of socks to start this evening all cosy beside the fire..

Keep safe and keep stitching....Doti...
