Grandmother's Puzzle & Some Socks



I have been working on another block this is for a Thimbleberries online quilting group I joined as I said before Thimbleberries is my favourite anyway I did this block for their August Lottery it is called Grandmother's Puzzle Block & of course I used TB fabric.
I have won off ebay 3 Thimbleberry books they are not the thick hardback but ones that has a few patterns in the 3 are titled" Cosy Quilts II" a collection of flannel quilts, "Farmhouse Flannels" Classic Country & last " North Bay Quilts" Classic Country, now I don't expect that I will use flannel on any but thought I could use the cotton reason i doubt I use flannel it harder to get here & when you do it will be expensive so if I want to do them i think I will use cotton TB fabric, I did get the books at a good price which is why I got them i doubt I would have if they been full price.
I finished a pair of socks these are going in to the Gift Stash which is for Christmas, I hope to start another pair shortly I do find I enjoy knitting them no pattern i just let the yarn do the pattern as you can see how it knitted up the yarn was Twister which I got from Germany.
