Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along!

I started to make this new jacket for Little Miss F at a nice leisurely pace. It has recently occurred to me that if I was a bit less leisurely I could get it finished in time for when I next see her in December and present it as a Christmas gift. The pins are flying. Now on the second sleeve.

The novel I totally recommend. Dorset Quaker girl goes to America and hides runaway slaves. With chapter titles such as Quilt and Applique, what’s not to like. Thoroughly enjoyable.
