Okay I know I’m not supposed to be starting something new but I couldn’t help it your honour!
Karen’s Summer Bow Tie Quilt Along that was being held on this Face Book page. I love the Bow Tie block and I was trying hard to resist but one of my Buddettes Rosa took on the challenge after I had “tongue in cheek” tried to tempt her into starting a new project…. well that back fired and the tables were turned, LOL… but all in good fun ;))
Anyway, I ramble on, I decided to make mine in 30s fabrics with bleached muslin background and since the Rainbow Scrappy colours for this month are Red, White and Blue, I thought I’d start with the red 30s and kill two birds with one stone. :) And here are my first blocks.
And at long last I have completed Monkey… I’m not an expert knitter and I don’t know if it was me or the pattern but the T-shirt didn’t turn out quite as it should have. So rather than start again I added a few rows of crochet to the neck…. However, now I think that Monkey looks more like a girl than a boy, LOL… what do you think… can he have a
sex (oops should I say the S word on here?) gender change?
So no ‘He’ is a ‘She’. I am quite pleased with the out come and I’m sure she’ll be a lovely surprise for DD when she returns home from her holiday.
Now onto another one thread a day ufo but what shall it be?? :-D
Have a great quilty weekend,
