I haven't posted about what I've been up to craftwise for a while so here is a big catch up. First up I've been knitting the Stitch Sampler Shawl (rav link). Nickerjac pinned it and I loved it at first sight. The yarn is not 100% ideal but it is nice to be using my favourite Marble again.
I've also finally made some beads I got in the John Lewis sale into a necklace.
Then my attention turned to the Kaufmann Jelly Roll my Mum gave me at Festival of Quilts. I unrolled it and, after a bit of maths, arranged the colour groups into 5's.
Pinterest (what doesn't one see on Pinterest?) and which I found a free copy of here. I only had 25 strips rather than 40, hence the maths. I can see why quilters refer to their 'design walls' so much. I have a 'design carpet'. My quilt has 5 plaits and I tried out keeping them in colour groups...
Pooch and I went to the Edward Munch exhibition on Saturday. It is terribly expensive but amazing. I have been a huge fan of his since GCSE Art. He's best known for The Scream but my favourite has always been his Madonna (pic from wikipedia).
I was quite surprised the Scream, Vampires and Madonna didn't feature at all but then when I thought about it the exhibition was about his life rather than his paintings, kinda, and there was plenty to make up for it. I came away with three postcards of my favourites.
