June lst! (hard to believe it)

As you might know from previous posts on my blog -- I belong to a wonderful group
of ladies from all over the world -- that decided we wanted to set up a Challenge group
so that we could 'reach' and learn some new techniques. The latest challenge was
a self portrait -- and what great entries we got today. I went for a straightforward
self portrait using thread painting -- check out Challenging Ourselves to see what
the girls have done. This was fun for me as it is the first time I have opened my
sewing maching since last June - so it is nice to want to work on my quilting again!

I also finished another 'coat of many colors' for a relative's birthday only this time
I knit the yoke rather than do it in crochet.

the pattern is my own design and it is greatfor
using up my worsted yarn that has been lying around for awhile.

I am making leg warmers to go with it for next winter wear.

I love designing my own sweaters and it is so
satisfying when one of my designs works out well.
