Thanks to Mops for posting her picture of the Virus meets granny square shawl. Just after I saw it, I was given a huge bag of yarn (as if I needed more!) which was a late friend's stash. Mops picture inspired me to search for the pattern and I discove
This is a block I digitised to piece in the hoop. The 4 blocks were also joined ITH. The back of the cushion was added on the sewing machine. If I had decided at the outset that it would be a cushion, it would have all been done in the hoop.
As you may know, I love to push the boundaries of the possibilities for ITH designs. These are my latest.<br /><br /> All are made with just the bare minimum of straight sewing when they come out of the hoop. (Shoulder seams on the waistcoats, sides se
