This week's rows and other finishes

This week I picked some apples and went zig-zag with my scrappy quilt. I managed to finish two more rows for the Bee in My Bonnet Row-along I'm making at my own pace.

My first four rows look like this, and next week I'm making some mugs and flying geese.

My blog remote control (DD) helped me find what was suddenly wrong with my pictures: The camera has settings for white balance, and somehow I had managed to change them. It made the pictures all blue, and I only thought it was the spring light, and tried to edit the worst of them. With her help I found the settings and at least the top photo looks OK now. The wind was blowing so much that I couldn't get the four rows lay still but had to take them in for a group photo shoot.
I made a little baby quilt for a friend who is going to have a baby next month.

The fabrics are all leftovers from the preemie quilts I have made earlier.

In the evenings I have been knitting dishcloths from some lovely cottons and bamboo cotton  blends.

Then I had to try this new to me traditional potholder pattern. I should have used heavier yarn, because the holes are so big you can burn your fingers if you use this for something really hot. This potholder is double-sided, the reverse is black. Can you find the missing stitch? I only noticed it now from the picture. I will go and add it, no problem. This will be my first entry for the Craft Olympics 2013 Special category.


  1. Looks like you are keeping busy. Wonderful projects. I'm having a hard time starting back up again. Perhaps next week will be better.

  2. Great projects, you have been busy. Your apples look yummy. Love the colors and texture on the dishcloths. I don't think I could use them. Potholder is so cute, I don't see a missing stitch.

  3. I think doing the row by row at your own pace is best. You'll probably enjoy it more. I just picked up my crochet hook again. Handmade dishcloths are best. Your friend is going to love the pretty handmade quilt. You fun quilting really shows up very well.

  4. I really see the difference in your pictures and also your quilt! It will be a very cheery quilt! Such a sweet baby quilt, too - I can see momman teaching baby a bit later to pick out the star, circle and heart :>) The potholder colors are so springy and I do love the red potholder - can't see any missing stitches! I hope it's warming up fast now in Finland!

  5. Dear Ulla I'm visiting from Jan's blog because I just had to tell you how lovely the quilt was that you sent to her for the needy.It is beautiful!!

  6. Wonderful Bee in Bonnet progress. I think it is going to look splendid!

    The baby quilt is beautiful. I think it will be treasured.

    Those dish cloths look too good to use! No- sorry I can't see the missing stitch. Congratulations on your CO progress!

  7. Vauvanpeite on herttaisen hempeä väreiltään, ja Bee-rivit raikkaita. Tutun näköinen patalappu, itsekin tuota mallia keväällä kokeilin. Onko se puuttuva pisto tuossa yläoikealla?
