The Simple Woman's Daybook - week 31

FOR TODAY August 8, 2010

picture thought I am sharing today...

Isn't he cute???

Fenix was waiting there in the sewing room...

And when I looked closer, I noticed he had already checked the thread;)) Oh, dear...

Outside My Window... HOOOOOT - in the shadow about 32 C. I'm tired of this hot and moisture weather. Furthermore we got today some smoke from the Russia, where is a lot of forest on fire. This is going to be very distressing... Oh, where are the coolish sunny days of Autumn?

I am thinking... that my blog name should be unfinished quilttales. Because when I look the sidebar and my OPAM list... where are the finished projects???

From the kitchen... something quick and easy from the freezer.

I am wearing... olivegreen microshorts and white T-shirt.

I am creating... a lot of different projects. So nowadays my motto is:

A little bit of that and a little bit of this!

I'll show you few of them...

The second block of My Garden

The Spider Web block to Linda,
who was the 'hostess' of the Euro Bee group in July.
The August is my month.

I got the first block kit of Tiny Town. And I couldn't resist...

Now I would like to ASK a question!!!!
When you do the appliques,
DO YOU cut off the background fabrics behind the bigger parts of applique?


I am going...
to go to concert of U2 on Saturday, 21th of August. I just realised how close is it? Now I'm going to feel more suspense!

One of my favorite things... is watching the detective series from TV - mainly english one. Oh, inspector Lewis is already started...

A Few Plans For The Week: I'm waiting a short summer holiday - five workdays and then...;))))
and OF COURSE THAT concert;)))

Have a creative week!
PS. I was too anxious to go to concert of U2;)) I must wait one week longer...but it doesn't matter;)))

I'm jealous that you got your first block of Tiny Town! I'm trying to wait patiently for my parcel to come in the mail. Enjoy U2 on Saturday!

I received my Tiny Town too! I can't wait to start. Yours looks great already.

My goodness, you have many projects, and many funny ones! And you write so very fluent English! I have not heard of Tiny Town before... Have a very good time at the concert!!! And I envy you a bit of that warm weather. My holidays finish on Tuesday, where did the summer go?

Tiny town looks so cute. I did not know it existed. It depends on if you cut away the back ground. How will you be finishing the quilt. Machine quilting would not have an issue with the thickness, hand quilting might be a bit of a struggle depending on how large the pieces (homes) are? What will you do with the finished quilt? For a wall hanging I have removed back ground fabric. I do not think I would do it with a bed quilt.

Fenix is really too cute!
Lucky you, to be able to join the Tiny Town! I was too late for it )o: Your work is really very very pretty!

You are showing beautiful projects today. And I never cut off backround of aplique, I always iron on the whole thing with vliesofix behind the entire piece.

How nice your Felix is! And so lovely block 2 of My Garden. I have just started the stitchery of that one.
No,I never cut any fabric off when I do the Vliesofix on the back. Only when doing the hexagon,then I usually cut of the fabric as no glue the.
Happy Stitching :))

Oooo... Tiny Town!!! That looks like such a fun project. Alas... I just don't have the time to do it. So I will have to vicariously enjoy it through you! :)

I do cut out the background behind my applique. I think removing the excess bulk makes quilting it easier. It also helps to give the applique a little extra "poof" to it, making it more dimensional (at least in my eyes).
