The rhythmical sound of knitting needles creating a gossamer
four ply silver grey and purple heather shawl,
quite a complicated pattern to follow after previously knitting

a striped cable knit scarf, ready for the autumn fall.

Tatting using a shuttle, creating lace designs which can be 
woven into a bracelet of thread in metallic gold,
the delicate finish similar to the art of lacemaking using 

wooden bobbins or needles, the craft itself very old.

Sewing a tapestry using wool, or following a counted cross 
stitch pattern, the silken threads colourful and rich,
using a hoop to tighten the cotton of an embroidered floral 
tablecloth, sewing using chain, stem and satin stitch.

The ornate black and wood frame of a pedal powered Singer
home sewing machine, revolutionary in it’s day,
making a summer dress in gauzy green polka dot, cutting the 
material and using an edging zig-zag stitch so that it doesn’t fray.

A rotary cutter prepares patterned and plain squares for the top
layer of a traditional quilt in cream and cornflower blue,
a modern quilt design with a colourful border of spring tulips
and decorative butterflies in every shade and hue.

Sewing the patterned fabric together then pinning the batting,
pleased with the effect of the different textiles,
stitching the layers together and adding a vibrant plain binding

creates a treasured quilt in country cottage style.

A large cutting table full of blush pink silk effect fabric to 
replace the old curtains that reach down to the floor,
the lining and header tape need to be stitched, pressed and 
 hung from the metal rail above the conservatory door.

Working with wool, embroidery silk, cotton and scraps of
colourful fabric, the art of creating you loved so dear,
when I picture you contentedly sewing, knitting or quilting,

this brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.
