Back to normal...

This morning (Sunday and I don't have to go anywhere) I got quite normal photo of our sewing room.
And - you know - it felt heavenly...
I think also Fenix enjoyed the sound of Bernina... on his ironing board...

Natalie Bird's Tis the Season -quilt is our Stitch-a-long project in this year. SAL is organized by Chookyblue. March is our first month and there is 13 blocks; the goal is to stitch and frame all blocks till September. So it will be finished early before Christmas;)
I'm using mainly Moda 3 Sisters Glace fabrics and thread is Atalie's 6 stranded hand-dyed cotton thread, shade Noël.

....so I reached atleast one 'Fixed Star'...;)


The other project in this morning was one more block for 1880's Sampler - #6 Four Anchors.

Although these blocks (=patches) are so small, they all have been very easy to make. Every week Cheryl gives us so good instructions that sewing them is just pure joy!

... maybe I leave the sewing room now...
... and concentrate to the other projects for the rest of the Sunda
y... there seems to be few...




...although my thougths are partly in Japan... what shall happen next in this world...


... with deep sigh I wish you
Creative Sunday!

It Doesn't Look Like a Quilter's Cutting Mat

I haven't spent a lot of time in the sewing room lately...
... so soon I might have a pressure with 'Fixed Stars'...


BUT
I have learnt a new things
and
recalled the old skills.

There was 'a factory of paper' in my kitchen last weekend. It was a messy work, but some of the papers are quite nice and decorative.

WE have learnt how to make a felt...
Next week at the school I'm dreaming of doing a felted bag...

And here is few examples of wholly new methods, which I have learnt to do
during this first month of studies.

So bee-bee-busy and quite splinter days
we have had here at the Quilttales.

HAVE a NICE WEEKEND...
Oh, how I miss my Bernina;)

I Haven't Forgotten You...

... hello there;)
I am still here,
although it was February when I wrote last time...
but time is flying and
I have to do some homework projects in the evenings...
... nevertheless I haven't discarded my sewing machine or threads and needles.

I'll show more of them in the near future, when I'll find more time...
but I couldn't wait any longer to show you these 1880's Sampler blocks.
Especially I'm so proud of the block #16.
I have never done so small squares, which are in the middle part of the block #16.
They are about 1/4" x 1/4".
WOW!!!

Happy week to you!!!!

PS. I'm so sorry that I haven't answered to your comments lately... but I'll try to find time to do it also in the near future.
