OOoooh – you are a nosey bunch, wanting to see inside my wool cupboard!  Well, just have a quick look at a quilt that I’ve finished and then I’ll show you …

It’s still chilly enough to need an extra layer to warm your toes in bed or keep over a favourite chair for evening snuggling so I backed this quilt with pure white lightweight fleece.  It’s perfect for snuggling and I’ll be listing it in my Adaliza Etsy shop very soon.

EDITED TO ADD:  Secret Garden is now sold and will be starting a new life in Australia very soon.  

Now, that cupboard …

Belle wants to see inside too!

There you are - happy now? Full to the brim with wools!

There you are – happy now? Full to the brim with wools!  Vintage wools, pure wools, mohair – you name it, it’s in there somewhere!

If you were hoping for wool shop organisation then I’ve been a disappointment.  The tubs work well for me as I usually crochet smaller items so I pitch into a tub or two and play with colours.  There are a couple of bags of vintage Jaeger Matchmaker that I do keep together and I have another tub of Drops alpaca and lace weight yarns that I’m working my way though, but that won’t fit into the cupboard (yet)!

All my little secrets, shared with you today!  Do you like the quilt?  I’m working on a Sherbet Pips cot quilt now – such fun!

See you soon

    Hi – yes, that’s Mary Rose Young. I collected it for a while and have some pretty pieces. I love having somewhere to show off these pieces – my other jugs and plates are in the lounge – I’m enjoying looking at them right now!

    Hi Susan – thanks for your lovely comment. I have absolutely no idea where I bought that fabric and I cut the quilt out last summer, so don’t even have the selvedge edges to give me a clue. I was trying to remember myself – it’s lovely.
