I have been working on a new runner based on one I had seen in a magazine (which one I can’t remember- sorry). The fabrics, from a collection by Sherrill Khan, have been in my stash for several years. I wish we, in the UK, had better access to fabrics like these I am sick and tired of the traditional fare we keep being fed, to such an extent I have started to import some contemporary fabrics for my own use, along with dyeing and designing my own. Ok moan over!
As you can tell it’s not the best of photos – as it is so long I have taken sectional pictures and merged them together, needs perfecting I know.
I am taking myself off to the US next May to a Quilt exhibition. I am going with an empty case so I can bring back loads of fabric. I may well send some back via post too depending on what I see.
I have also been knitting samples for a tunic jumper which I really hope to get around to making.
The sample shows the two cable patterns I intend to use, the tension has yet to be decided on. The drawing, not the best, gives an idea of how the tunic will look.
