Now that everything is with the publishers, I'm free to start making for fun and sharing again. There are so many things I want to do: pojagi, bookmaking and doll-making are top of my list. And I've really missed the comfort of plain old running stitch; so another quilt beckons.
I've made a start. A couple of rag dolls are underway. Two cuddly mice for some recently born twin nieces. And I've become obsessed with visible mending. This jumper was a favourite but full of holes. I needle felted contrasting colour into the worn areas then reinforced them with darning. I enjoyed the process so much, I added patches to the neckline and hem where there wasn't any damage to the jumper. I think it helps balance things out a bit; do you?
