Down the Rabbit Hole

Saturday, December 14th, 2019

I’ve done quite a lot of knitting, dressmaking and quilting in the time that I was missing from here. When times are hard I find working with my hands is incredibly soothing. It was and I did.

This was one project that I finished – although it took me two and a half years in total to make – it’s Sarah Fielke’s ?Down the rabbit Hole’ block of the month. Machine pieced, hand appliquéd and hand quilted. I bought the fabrics for the background specially but everything else came from my stash, which was very satisfying. Sarah’s pattern was simply amazing. I’m really glad I gave it a go, even if it did take a fair bit of perseverance to make it to the end!

It’s cold and blustery here at the moment – which means our bedroom gets pretty chilly – so I’m really enjoying snuggling down under this beauty at night. Getting up in the morning….not so much…..

Have a nice weekend
