I have found crocheting relaxing in lockdown. I had wool left after making the family of mice (below) and used it up on the snowman ring. My first Christmas 2020 item.
Deb’s dog comfort blanket and dress made with fabric bought at the NEC a year ago.
I had a good stash of yarn at the beginning of lockdown so got going in the evening while watching telly: 10 cat nests (+ I double sided cat mat and one knee rug) are the result. Two nests are already reserved and the rest will slowly be “decanted” to the Caring for Cats charity shop in Beverley now that it has re-opened.
My other project is clearing out my sewing room (ongoing!)
I recently completed this appliqué collage as a wall hanging for my young grandsons. It’s using a’ lunar eclipse’ design by Roxana Pallett from Hannah’s Room, then I’ve overlaid silhouettes. The background is mainly batiks and I’ve free motioned on top of the moon and background.
I hadn’t quite completed this before Christmas – various problems arose, etc – but it was the first UFO that I finished during lockdown! It is a June Tailor kit where the batting is printed with the design and you sew the backing, batting and top together at the same time, sewing along the printed lines. I bought the kit – which doesn’t include the fabric – at the Festival of Quilts last year.
