Knitting, Sewing, Tatting and Quilting

The rhythmical sound of bamboo knitting needles creating a gossamer 
light four ply silver grey and soft purple heather wool blend shawl,
quite a complicated pattern to follow after previously knitting 
a multicoloured cable knit scarf, ready for the cool autumn fall.

Tatting using a shuttle creates stunning lace designs which can be 
fashioned into a decorative bracelet of woven thread in metallic gold,
the delicate hand crafted finish similar to the art of lacemaking using 
thread wound on wooden bobbins or needles, the craft itself very old.

Sewing a tapestry using a printed canvas and soft wool, or a counted 
cross stitch pattern, the silken skeins of thread colourful and rich,
using an adjustable hoop to stretch the white cotton of an intricate
embroidered floral tablecloth using running, chain and satin stitch.

The ornate black metal base and wooden table top of a foot pedal 
powered Singer home sewing machine, revolutionary in it’s day,
making a summer sun dress in gauzy green polka dot, carefully cutting
 the cotton material and using an edging zig zag stitch so it doesn’t fray.

A rotary cutter and board cuts pieces of material into patterned and 
plain squares for the top layer of a quilt in cream and cornflower blue,
a modern quilt design in white has a colourful border of spring tulips 
and decorative different sized flying butterflies in every shade and hue.

Sewing the edges of the patterned fabric together then pinning the
 the warm wool batting, pleased with the effect of the different textiles,
stitching the layers together with a cotton base, then adding a vibrant 
plain binding creates a treasured quilt in modern country cottage style.

 Using twisted wool, embroidery silk, thread and scraps of colourful
 cotton fabric to create an item individually designed, unique and new,
there is a sense of satisfaction when making or looking at the finished
project knowing that it was designed, crafted and made entirely by you.
