Two More Squares for the Play-mat

19th March 2014

Gardening in the park this morning then home to stitch.....


...stitched using narrow satin...




...completed nine squares, getting there slowly!

While I was away I knitted some shapes in yarn I had left from projects....

.... 100% Merino knitted on size 8 and 5 needles....


.... Alpaca left from a blanket I made for my daughter last year using size 9 and 5 needles...


...I intend to see if these samples will wet felt as I would like to use them for an elephant and rabbit motif, another experiment. Hope it works!!

This quilted play-mat is taking a lot longer than I expected but I am enjoying the process.
