Some Quilts

Some tops that I have pieced and just need to finish.
This is a close up of the front, the picture above is the back, a completely reversible quilt. This was last years class with Barbara Gower that I did for my beautiful darling grand daughter Lily. She will turn 2 in June and I really want to get it finished for her.
A picture of the front taken in the sun, just to show how bright it is, a stripy drunkards path.

A pattern out of Jelly roll quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott. It is on the lounge room floor ready to be pin basted. The picture above is the corner turned over to show the back. This is a quilt top that has recently been finished and I would really like to get it completed.

I Won

Kelly over at IHAN had a month of giveaways to celebrate. I won some beautiful pins from the Just another Button Company. Thanks Kelly for a great gift and a blog that is always fun to read.

Oh where has the time gone

I'm so late where has the time gone.
I finished these last month for the OPAM that Peg and Kris are hosting. The cardigan was in an Australian Womens Weekly back in May 2004, I have actually knitted this up before and liked the way it looked. Why do you finish the back, a front and half a sleeve and then put it away?
If I knew the answer I would have no UFO's to finish.
The scarf was a new project with wool bought at Craftexpo when it was on at Homebush. The wool is from the girls at Lush Yarns it was in their $10 bin and there were 2 hanks. It was lovely to knit with and the pattern is a feather and fan variation found on Ravelry.
