I have finally finished all of the T-shirt quilts I had cut out at the end of last year, four in total. They have all been passed over to Liz our local co-coordinator for Project Linus.

Liz had given me a large piece of a teapot print with a black background at one of her Linus days. She felt it was unpromising for use in Linus quilts. However, I thought I would have a go at using it, as I do love a challenge, and here is the result.

I have also finished and passed on the Olympia quilts from the previous post.
I bought another crochet shawl book from The Crochet Project. This time I went for a downloadable copy, but I am not sure if I like these. I think I am a bit old fashioned and prefer the printed book. So here are some of the things I have made from Book 1.

|"Never Black" using hand dyed yarn bought at Unravel|
|"Northmoor Lock" in 4-ply and DK yarns|

Back to fabric with some presents made for friends birthdays. Some flowers from an edition of Stitch magazine from the Embroiders Guild, and a Barbara Chainey design for a cushion.

Since starting this post I have cut out enough T-shirt blocks for 3 more quilts and 2 T-pot strip quilts. They are in bags for taking to quilting meetings, when I have no project with a deadline to meet.
That's all for now, lots more in the pipeline.
