Despite looking about 21, my mum has a significant birthday next month. What to give her? A quilt, of course. And for such a significant birthday? A LIBERTY quilt.
I bought most the squares from Liberty Charms on Etsy (she has the most amazing supply of vintage Liberty fabrics, like the 24 Liberty Lawn squares, below)
And then for the edging (and to keep it looking more contemporary), I edged it with some of the brand new Liberty Lifestyle Craft Fabrics. Here’s a few of my favourites …
Blue Copeland Cotton Craft Fabric
Red Dance Cotton Craft Fabric
Turquoise Garnett Cotton Craft Fabric
Blue Dorothy Cotton Craft Fabric
Of course, when I say I’ve done all this, I haven’t. I’ve only just started on the patchwork top. Who knows how long this will take … but I’m looking forward to doing it all.
The last couple of tattoos from the Ravelry group, Tattooed Knitters and Crocheters. Just two here, but both very different to the previous ones …

You know I love craft. And you might know I’m a huge fan of tattoos too. So here’s the latest from the Tattooed Knitters and Crocheters group on Ravelry.
Part two and three coming in the next days …
A couple of brilliant wordy tattoos
And, of course, some yarn and a stoat.
Apparently so, according to Forbes (75% of the 4.3 million users are female).
