Here is my last post before leaving Greece to spend the summer in France. Despite my troubles after injuring my spine, I managed little by little to finish hand quilting this baby quilt for my seven months' old grand daughter. It is the reason why the quilting is rather basic...

You can find HERE my Log Cabin tutorial. 

HERE the references for the measurements of this baby quilt and the fabric line I used.

Wishing you all a beautiful summer holiday!

Loving the pattern of this shawl, I knitted a second one. Here is THE TUTORIAL.
I did this one larger than the first one, I needed then 12 balls of the wool shawn HERE.
The crochet border is slightly different.
This is the easiest pattern possible : garstitch all along starting from one side corner, increasing every row and when the middle is reached, decreasing every row. The crochet border and the fringes are  optional.
So pleasant to knit watching TV!!!

After my last February misadventure, two months in bed, then wearing an orthopedic corset, here I am again going out for the first time. What a pleasure for this first going out to enjoy this wonderful bazaar that our friend Eleni was attending with many new items, great personal creations...! On the first picture I am having one of her lovely bags and I am wearing the green jacket I knitted last winter.

During my convalescence, little by little, I started knitting and sewing for my six months' old grand daughter.

With the green yarn I knitted a large shawl.

As regards the Log Cabin baby quilt I went on hand quilting.
