NaBloPoMo 2020.25 | Safe redux
I'm joining Kat & the Unravelers today to share what I'm knitting & reading!
If you have a really great memory, you might recall that I started knitting a Safe At Home "audition" before starting Davy's blanket, and I've been working on that again.
I started with the three houses and then did a log cabin-style frame around them to get to the desired dimensions.
I'm going to make it into a tufted pillow for Maddy & Viv for Christmas. I can tell you because neither of them/no one in my family reads my blog. I have a down pillow form and I'm going to use some of the linen that I used for Ducky's curtains to make the back, and then I'm going to find some little buttons, aka DOORKNOBS, for the tufting. I want to make similar pillows for Kate & Ali, and for Annie, too, I think. I have three more forms! I am dying to try some of Kaffe Fassett's houses in the new MDK Field Guide N0 16: Painterly!
Recipes and wish lists.
Absolutely wonderful and such a nice gift! :-)

What a nice gift. I love the idea of buttons as doorknobs.

Instantly thought of you when I saw that latest MDK release. And, you've got me wanting to try either that or the original pattern. But, like all construction projects, it may be delayed by the holidays

That will make a wonderful pillow. And I agree on the new MDK field guide - I'm tempted to take the plunge and learn intarsia!

That's going to be an amazing gift!

That will be a great pillow. Question- won't doorknobs be uncomfortable to sit against? LOL
You can prolly find great buttons online or beads.

The houses look amazing with the log cabin around them. Good work in creating a beautiful, and caring gift for Viv and Maddy!
