I have a quilt top!

This week I finally finished something from my UFO list - my jelly roll race quilt (photos after the weekend when the light is hopefully better). I also finished sewing together the Summersville quilt top for the baby.

Summersville Quilt top

The weather was so rubbish today I had to take this photo inside so the colours look a bit funny.  The colours are much nicer in real life honest! I'm hoping to get this basted and quilted at the weekend now that my sewing mojo seems to have returned.

I also wanted to share this gorgeous baby shawl that a friend knitted for me.

I've just been given this beautiful handmade knitted baby shawl made by a friend, am so touched.

I've been inspired so another friend is going to help me start a baby hat next week - I've got my supplies so fingers crossed for my first adventure into the world of knitting!

Supplies for baby hat which the lovely @jenacknitwear is going to show me how to knit!
