Knitted bear and mini

Last week I knitted this beer from left overs of this sweater.
I used a pattern from the book 'The knitted Bear by Sandra Polley'
Today I made this mini quilt for him. Each square is about 1/2".
I know someone who would be happy with this bear and miniquilt :-)

V-stitch blanket, finish

A few weeks ago I finished this V-stitch blanket. From the first stitch to the last one it was  such a pleasure to make.  It took me  just one month to finish! 

I mostly used merino yarn. It is soft, warm and nice to work with.

My DD2 loves it. 

These dolls and bunny are sleeping with her since I made them for her about 21 years ago. Time flies. 

Pattern:      V-stitch 
Yarn:          Drops merino extra fine, Katia Basic, Katia 100% merino, Rico essentials, Lana grossa
                   cool wool, Annell Malmedy
Hook size: 4mm

I'm so happy I spotted this kingfisher today.  I waited 1 1/2 hour  for it 
(and even sat in the nettles )

(pictures of these quilt are made in 2008)

A few days ago I received an email from Penny. She asked me about a quilt she remembered from my first blog.  I made this quilt years ago. Actually it was in 2008! (time flies..)  Well here you go Penny. 
I was inspired by the quilt Potluck from the book Save the Scraps by Gayle Bong.  
This is my version. I used leftover triangles for the top and the bottom and for the backing. I enjoyed making this quilt very much.  I re- calculated my blocks from inch to cm. But I think they are almost the same size as the blocks in the book.  I hope these pictures helps you to make your version with your friend.  


ps.  I'm happy that the big tits are making their nest in my garden again.
 It's spring!
