"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Got my mojo back!

Here is my second UFO project finished: the Sunbonnet Sue blocks made up into a mini quilt.

A friend was telling me about the pot holder she bought to use, but hates the fabric it is made of. I offered to make her another one, and finished this tonight. She is a Cat lover, so I think she will approve!

On to more practical things, I had three pairs of socks with small holes in the toe, and finally got around to darning them this week. I buy my darning wool from opshops, hence the variety of colours. Not many haberdashery shops sell darning wool these days, and even if they do, the younger staff have no idea what it is :-(

Lovely finishes, Gina.

You have been busy, that fabric is brilliant

Love these fun projects. I didn't know anyone still darned socks. I learned how at school in the 2nd grade (7 years old) and we all had to bring in a darning egg. I guess no home was without one in those days!
