Project completed!

I haven’t been at my sewing machine lately because I’ve been travelling.  But I did complete a project.  I purchased yarn to make socks when I was in Calgary in 2011 and have been carrying the unfinished project around ever since.  Managed to get these completed while I was in Edinburgh. 




The yarn is Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn.  It was great fun to watch the colours develop differently in the two socks. 




I’m hoping that the next socks (yarn purchased in Edinburgh) don’t take quite so long to complete!!

International Birds!

This piece is the result of a challenge with friends.  Our theme was Birds, so I put an appliqued bird panel from Panama in the centre, then used fabrics from Africa to make the circle of Flying Geese.  Couched yarns and some sparkly beads were added to meet some of the other requirements of the challenge.  I’m pleased with my little wall quilt and am eager to see what the rest of the group has come up with.
