Weekly Report from the Sewing Room from The Cozy Quilter

There were some changes in my plans this week... When I tried to get the right size of knitting needles for my next cloth pattern, the local knitting store was sold out.  I have my name on the list to get them when they arrive from the distributor, but like many shipments these days, things are taking a little longer to arrive.  In the meantime, I wanted to knit something, so I made another simple dish cloth using blue variegated yarn. 


Here is my completed project, just finished today.


Blue was the theme colour of my week as I used ...

Slow Sunday Stitching and Knitting from The Cozy Quilter

Hello!  We had a glorious sunny day yesterday and much of the day was spent outside, cleaning up the gardens, walking Finn and reading in the gazebo.  We even ate out lunch outside on the patio for the first time this year.  There was no stitching or knitting of any kind yesterday, but, today, it is raining, a perfect day to stay inside and do some slow stitching.  


I finished my basket weave dish cloth this week.  You can really see the pattern created by the variegated yarn, now that it is done.  I have a new knitting pattern for ...

Slow Stitching and Some New Blocks from The Cozy Quilter

How are you all doing?  I'm trying to keep busy--I walk Finn every morning and sometimes in the evenings too.  In between, I read, knit, cross stitch, sew and do odd jobs around the house.  My husband is working from home so Finn and I can't have any wild parties...LOL!  

The basket weave pattern is showing up more on my dish cloth this week. I am getting better at this pattern now and it is going a bit quicker. I may need to make a couple more cloths this way to get it into my muscle memory ...

Flying Geese quilt ladder runner from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I'm excited to update you on a project I started last year, a long Flying Geese runner featuring one of my favorite fabric collections, Harvest Road by Lella Boutique for Moda. The runner is finished, and I've displayed it on a quilt ladder in my living room. I'm really happy with how it turned out!



The inspiration for this project came from the Furrows block and Harvest tablerunner in Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage book. My runner is much longer than the sample in the book, finishing at 96" long by 12" wide ...
