I have been absent from the web since a while due to many family obligations, and especially taking care of my grand-son. No quilting or knitting these days, just a little spring gardening.

I did this drawstring bag five years ago for my little niece. Since then she is carrying it everywhere she goes. The lovely flower fabric is Anna Maria Horner's. I followed the print lines to embroider it. 

On the fourth picture you can see the border of my Kaffe Fassett Fan quilt.

A Dream of a Poncho

Poncho

I knitted this poncho last month in three days. It was so quick and easy! The pattern is created by my sister, reproducing an old poncho bought years ago in Peru and completely damaged by wearing it for so long. 

I used 100 g of Drops Melody with number 12 circular needles. I finished it with a crochet row all around and one pompom at each corner.

I am so happy with it, it keeps me warm in the evenings. Though spring is here, the evenings are still
very fresh... This poncho is so pleasant to wear, light like a feather and so warm!
