The baby booties were done in a leftover from the Sunshine Day Afghan, the doll version. They hardly take any time to knit up and they make a nice little extra with the baby cardigans I plan to knit for the local baby boom.
The pillow… Well, as I was cleaning up my sewing space I came about a single patchwork block. And a day later, a small pillow (35 x 35cm) popped up when I went through the attic space. It was a matter of minutes before I put the two together. I took the square, added a double border, some good batting and set to quilt the lot. No big plans, just a general feeling that it might work out.
I love the result. And what I love even more is that with a fresh cover, this pillow can go from being stored to being used. (pillow knitting – Himiko)
