Quilt blocks for the sampler and some knitting

After a long absence from my sewing machine I have taken the bull by the horns again and finished ten new blocks for the Splendid Sampler. I have decided to make things easier for myself whenever I feel like it, so I used a striped fabric here instead of piecing the half circle, and I appliqued the halves on the background instead of piecing them. I don't like curved seams very much.

This one is done by the book (there will be a book with these patterns in the Spring!).

I have knitted little mittens

and a pair of pink and grey socks.

Winter arrived at the beginning of this month for about ten days, but is now gone again, with rain and plus degrees. It was pretty while it lasted.
