And after four years I have a finished top!
In 2019 I started by making one Dresden flower a month and continued into 2020.
Having put them all together it was obvious I needed a border and so in 2021 and 2022 I made two little hexadens a month and had them dancing round the border.
The last couple of months I have been making four rainbow Dresdens to go in the corners.
Another top for the quilting pile! Thank you to Angela for Scraphappy Saturday and all your prompts over the year. I already have a plan for 2023!
My next finish is this little Spring Mystery Pouch from Nordic Crafter and Stitching Notes. Last week I showed the inside, this week it has been gifted and so now I can show you the outside.
That last pic looks a bit wobbly but the rainbow is straight! Easy pattern to follow and even adding the zip by hand was a doddle.
And for my next finish another pair of Winwick Mum basic socks. This time I was using stash so the legs are a nice soft botany wool and the feet a more hardwearing tweedy sock wool. As you can see by the leftovers I was playing yarn chicken with these!
Another trip to the coast yesterday so I will leave you with a picture of Clevedon Pier - have a great week.
The Dresden flower top is really lovely!ReplyDelete

I’m awestruck by the adorable pouch you finished and gifted (lucky person!) What a beauty it is! Your Dresden quilt top is a work of art, and I look forward to seeing it completed.ReplyDelete
Your Dresden top is beautiful. Hmm, I wonder what you will do next? Cute wee baggieReplyDelete
You have made such a pretty Rainbow Dresden top, such a clever idea. And the little pouch is darling, such a lovely gift. And as a "late to the party" sock knitter, I admire your socks, wool chicken and all!ReplyDelete
Such a lovely quilt top, Lin. Love all those pretty dresden flowers and the hexadens dancing around the border are perfect. Cute little pouch; sweet embroideries. As for your lovely socks, goodness me, you certainly were playing yarn chicken.ReplyDelete
Your RSC quilt top is delightful! I love the colorful flowers in different sizes, and the gray background, too. And what great pouches you're making! Lots of fun projects at your housd!ReplyDelete
Wonderful finishes. The pouch is lovely and the socks look really warm. Your Dresden top is lovely too.ReplyDelete
Lovely quilt, the blocks just sparkle on that background. Pretty socks, too! Congrats on winning at yarn chicken. I confess I have often come short.ReplyDelete
Your rainbow scrap top is gorgeous! Well done. The gift pouch is very sweet.ReplyDelete
Your Dresden flower quilt turned out great. I love this one. It took a long time but it was all worth it. Congrats! Love the little pouch too. The addition of embroidery and the ladybugs is so cute. Well done. Enjoy! ;^)ReplyDelete
Sweet, sweet, sweet (hexagon quilt, pouch, knitted socks). Feels good to have these completions, doesn't it? And you already have your RSC2023 picked out. Wow!ReplyDelete
Oh Lin, that is the best rainbow scrap challenge quilt I have ever seen!!! I love it, and your work is beautiful.ReplyDelete
The little bag you made is exquisite! There are perfect little details that make it so nice.
Such a beautiful long-term project. The Dresdens are so striking on the dark background. And I’m glad you won your round of yarn chicken with the socks. They look cozy. Neat idea to use two different weights of yarn.ReplyDelete
The top has turned out beautifully - and the yarn chicken was successful, too, although I bet you had some anxious moments!ReplyDelete
The Dresden top really came out well.... a lot of time spent on that and well worth it. How cute is the little bag too and well done with the socks - you were lucky with the amount of yarn!ReplyDelete
The long-term RSC Dresden flowers looks lovely .ReplyDelete
