New Cloths are added each month to learn a Victorian stitch in the Victorian CAL Cloth & the Victorian KAL Cloth series.  They are mini-mysteries with just the one clue; nobody knows what they look like until you make them…photos are only on the last pages of the pattern, or in the Ravelry West Coast Fibre Arts Group “Spoiler Photos” threads.  Here are links to the March Cloths–and the new KAL Knit cloth is 50% right until midnight the 22nd, so will cost less than $1US!

Celebrate each Friday with a Flower:  that is, a new Victorian Flower!  These are “3-Rs Patterns”: Re-searched, Re-Written, Re-worked from Victorian era patterns for you to make as embellishments for hats & bags, to make pictures, etc.  Some will be part of a larger design published soon, for instance an afghan or a d’oyley.  They are FREE for now, until I gather them all into a book of patterns.  Here are the first 2–don’t forget to come back Friday for a new one!

Gilda’s Cuffs:  perfect for spring & summer–a pair of little lace cuffs to add a delicate new touch to a sweater or jacket, you can make them in cotton or wool, in thread or yarn…they’d be lovely for summer weddings with pear beads added!

BLACKBIRD SINGING: A PIECE OF PI SHAWL

Named for the remarkable Crow bird, which is the inspiration of the first 3 cloths along with its Fable companion, Fox, and for the lovely little Beatles song sung by songwriter/singer Sir Paul McCartney many times over the decades, too:  Blackbird
