"Happy Dance.".

Yep, indeed I did a happy dance.
Two finishes and a little play time. 

This was my first finish, I was so pleased to have finished it I took this photo before I sewed in the tail ends,Ha! Ha! 
This was a mammoth knit. I do not think I have ever knitted anything so long or big in my life, and yet it is as light as a feather. The yarn was called Loft, and the whole thing only weighs 1 pound..


The label said 100% American Wool. Grown in Wyoming, Spun in New England.
The last person I saw with a muffler this long was Dr Who..



My next finish was the binding on the Liberty quilt, you know I love doing that.

 I sent a photo of the finished quilt top
to the lovely Amanda who runs the Liberty Club and she sent me a lovely present in the post (a
Scrap Bag), some are really big pieces 1/4 mtr size.
Another happy dance ...

This was my final fun bit of the weekend, playing with wool felt and embroidery thread, picking up the Tugboat Willy idea.



Not where I want to be at the moment, but it's getting there.
Previously I was working in cotton fabric for the tug boats but as I have such a lot of felt, it's time I used up some of it. So watch this space...









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