THIS MONTH’S WINNER Sharon Mobilia, from Canning Vale, WA, for her Canadian Inspiration quilt: “I was inspired by Emma How’s quilt in Homespun Vol 12 No 3. It took me about four years, on and off, to complete this monster quilt. It has more than 2,000 blue 2 1/2in squares. The original version finished at the border, but I added more rows to accommodate my king-size bed. It was professionally quilted in a leaf and flower pattern by Jacaranda Quilting.” Congratulations to Sharon for her great effort. As the winner this month, she will be receiving the following prize: The Perfect Adjustable Square by Karen K. Buckley, courtesy of Wendy Whellum, of Legend and Lace. It’s a boxed set of 20 transparent components that fit together like a jigsaw to create precise squares or…

KNIT THAT UP, JOT THAT DOWN! It’s not far off the new year, so now’s the time to think about 2016 diaries. And while you’re thinking hot dates (at least in the printed form), Cleckheaton would like to encourage a little creativity. Its wonderful knitted diary covers come in three design alternatives – Contrast Stripe, Arrow Embroidery and Bobbles. You’ll find the pattern for these in Cleckheaton’s Hand Made Gifts book, along with other wonderful accessory ideas to stitch. Pick up a copy from your favourite craft or haby store, call 1800 337 032 or visit cleckheaton.com.au. PATCH AS PATCH CAN There may not be a plethora of porch swings in Australia, but this charming idea can be adapted to any seating. And before you go saying it’s craft sacrilege to cut into…

eastern wind up

Sarah Neuburger, from The Small Object, www.thesmallobject.com, saw a similar idea to this on the La Belle site and decided to put her own special spin on the Japanese floss-bobbin concept. She made them as little gifts for sewing colleagues and friends, but now she’s happy to share her how-to with Homespun readers. Here’s how you can head East without leaving your sewing room. Step 1: Cut out the shape you want in paper and use it as a template. Trace the paper template onto a thin board. I raided my friend’s recycling bin for some cereal boxes. Step 2: After transferring the design onto thin board, cut it out outside the traced line and staple the centre to another piece of thin board. Cut out along your traced line. This will…

the no-knit furniture sweater

This is an easy, colourful idea courtesy of Meta Coleman, from One More Mushroom (onemoremushroom.com). Any child would love to have something like this in their nursery or playroom, so here’s how Meta went about making it: First, get yourself a cheap (under $40) set of Lätt table and chairs from Ikea and some yarn. Then … 1 Tie a tight knot with the first piece of yarn around the leg of the chair. 2 Wrap the yarn around the leg, fairly tight. It’s okay to wrap it with lots of spaces because you can push it down before wrapping the next colour. 3 Make a tight knot with the previous colour and the new colour. Wrap all four legs in a patchwork of yarn. 4 With a single colour of yarn, wrap around the seat…
