FNSI November - part one!


Many thanks to Wendy for inviting us round not just once this month but twice!

We have had beautiful weather here all week and Friday was no exception so after adding the final borders to this Gardeners Journal panel (which has been waiting for it's borders for some months) I headed outside to do some more work in the garden.



So then my task for the evening was to add some quilting which I did with a lovely yellow/pale green variegated perle thread.



Then for the last hour of my evening I got out some crochet. I started knitting a pair of socks with this lovely yarn last year but was not happy with the pattern. Now I NEED a cowl so have undone my knitting and started crocheting my cowl. Not sure how big it will turn out but I am sure there will be enough there. It's lovely, simple, rhythmic ripple crochet - perfect for relaxing with at the end of the day.


Thanks Wendy - see you again next week. xx

Hello Lin, I love the leaf patterned material you've used in the border for your gardener's journal panel. Also, your embroidered gardening lady is so beautiful and I love all the little touches that tell her story... she loves cats and is enjoying a nice rest with a drink at the end of a productive gardening day!
Your cowl will be so pretty, it's beautiful wool.
Cheers :D)

Your Garden journal is looking good, I love a warm neck and cowls keep my neck so warm. I tried wearing scarves but they either came undone or dropped into things.

This is exquisite! I love the colors, the yellow really makes the stitchery pop. And the green calms it down, while adding a nice foundation. I love your stitching all around the edges, giving it that bit of charm. Nice, Nice work.

I love the embroidery and the quilting that you are doing! I like the soft colors that blend together so well. This time of year just makes you want to knit or crochet, doesn't it? Best wishes on your project!
