I can ripple!!!!!

Thanks to the amazingly talented Attic24 (and a slightly irritating headcold) I can proudly say that I know how to ripple. It's something that I've wanted to learn but kept thinking 'that's too hard'. Well, I can safely say, it's not too hard and it's immensely satisfying.
Things have been a bit busy lately, and I haven't done any crafting for ages and whilst it's holidays at the moment, I find I'm spending a lot of time with the kids. This morning though, the boys went out with their big cousin Lily and as I wasn't feeling too good, I figured I deserved a little time to sit quietly. So that's just what I did - and this is what I achieved out of scraps of wool I found in my stash. I'm itching to try her tutorial on hexagons now. Check out her blog - it's so bright and beautiful, it just makes you smile :)


Below is what I plan to start on the weekend. I'm thinking a log cabin quilt, or something similar. It will be lovely to get behind a sewing machine again - it's been far too long!

Your ripples look great, I have been looking for a ripple pattern for ages, but couldn't understand them. Lucy's pattern and instructions make it look simple enough for me to do. Happy sewing and rippling

hee Levin. I love your ripple. Looks hard but you said it wasn,t. Also love your next project. The colours are beautifull.I,m starting the farmers wife sampler quilt. The whole project takes about 2 years. Very ambitious but this way I will keep on going. I,m really enjoying it. looking forward to seeing how the quilt comes along. Love Els

Wish I could! Your rippling is so colourful, and super neat. I would love that little pile of fabric, the colourways and patterns look so good together. x
