Winter Warmers

It has suddenly turned cold and rainy over here this week, and everyone started digging out their warm clothes. I have decided that now it is a perfect time for me to make some felted scarves! 

They turned out so wonderfully soft, that I am now looking forward to wearing one of them soon.

I have almost made up my mind about the one that I am going to keep for myself... but I would love to know which one is your favourite!

Special thanks to my very own awesome photographer :))

Garnet Ring

My new wholecloth quilt is finished at last!

It took me ages to accomplish the feathers, as I stitched them with a metallic coloured thread. That thread proved to be a nightmare to hand quilt with, but I still love the shimmering effect it produces 

This special shimmer of the thread set against a subtle sheen of the satin cotton fabric reminds me of looking into the depths of a precious stone - hence the quilt's name.
I decided to decorate it with some lace and glass beads, as the quilt looked rather unfinished with a plain binding.

Thank you for coming, and have a great week!
