An Odd Feeling...

... not because of Halloween Night, but because

... they (= SBS blocks) are ALL (= 140) sewn!!!

The trip began...

 
on Saturday 8.11.2008
with C-10 Night & Noon
and ended today 31.10.2011
with K-2 The Friendship Quilt

... it was a huge trip... a lot of up- and downhills!



I wrote short diary notes of every block...

there is details of doing ...

fabrics, problems ...
... about weather ...

and of course happenings of my life ...


 

The blocks were stored in a red folder...

...there is blocks for a one row in a one plasticpocket... but those pockets are now too thick to fit all in the file...



Now I'm going to forget SBS blocks... and concentrate to sewing them together in 2012.

As often happens...

Fenix wanted to inspect the quality of the block

Happy first week of November!!!!
and Boo :o)

Finished UFO (?)

Hey Satu, look this is
a PuRRfect CATWALK!

 Oh, is it? I thought it would be our new tablerunner...
which is finALLy finished!
It has been waiting for binding few months...
this morning I grabbed the needle and voila... 
atleast something done in this week...

... also I practised to applique with the B. Aurora...

 
Can you believe, this is my first attempt to applique with the machine...
Although I have had an opportunity to use machine,
I have always trusted
and felt more sure about appliqueing by hand...
Tomorrow
maybe more hourglasses for two different projects...

SPookY(?) WeeKENd to you!!!

Week 42...

At first Mill Girl's news

There is now four block ready
and a small pile of hourglasses and the other pile of HSTs.
The goal for the week 43 is three blocks and more HGs and the rest of HSTs.
Original MG has twenty blocks, 
but I realised that I would be more pleased with 16 blocks...
then the quilt will be a square, which I might need now more than...


Then I finished the second OPAM in October

It's a crocheted Salomon's knot scarf. The 'knots' are bigger than usually.

The yarn is wool with mohair, so the scarf feels some rough. I'm considering to freeze it as Mai did with her itching scarf.

These small mug rugs are inspired by Maritta
She showed on her blog how to do nice little stars using two size of pentagons.

Today

I finished applique for the mini-quilt...
and
one appliqued block for the

Some Kind of Wonderful (SKofW).

I'm happy you stopped a while...
so in the end

I wish you delicious Sunday!!!

Mill Girl's Quilt is Launched

 Anne Ida planned
that on the first week of MG Quilt-along we would make a final decision of fabrics, cut them and sew 30 hourglass blocks.
This evening I started to sew some hourglasses, but then I wanted to see one 12" block finished.
I have five colours:
pink, green, lilac, yellow and blue
and I needed help to arrange them well...

 ... I have years ago purchased Joen Wolfrom's book Colorplay...
tonight I found it very useful;)

in the end... before the bedtime...

the pressing of one hourglass

Goodnight!!!!

Tomorrow It Begins...

 I know, I must be silly...
but I decided to take part on Mill Girls QA.

 These fabrics tempted me too much!!!

Will you quilt-along too???
Or are you busy with the other things???


I wish you
a creative weekend 
there 
where you are!!!

SBS -block News...

... four weeks and then they are all
DONE!

 Namely ALL SBS blocks!!!
I hardly can resist to sew all last four immediately...
but otherwise 
I just like to enjoy this neverending feeling...
I think some of you know exactly, what I'm meaning.

Here are the previous four blocks.

Now I'm wondering...

is there any BOW -life after Sylvia's Bridal Sampler???
What does it mean... the end of sewing SBS blocks weekly?
Will it leave a HUGE HOLE in my life?

... just wondering...
AND wishing you a WONDERful week!

PS. Kiitos ihanista kommenteista Ulla ja Irma!
