Jotain valmista. Osa1 - the First Project of 2012...

... IS FINISHED :o)

Aren't they CUTE??? 
Those 'baby feathers' (= back-/ long stitches with one thread) make them look so real...
Now they are ready for the frames and to the wall...
There... now the photo... I quickly fetch the camera...
AND.... that NOISE...?????

What's happening in the living room?

 
No, no, nooo, FENIX!!!!! Please, leave 'Sitting Pretties' alone!

Well, maybe it's better put them on the table...
I think I'll change the passe-partout someday... the stripes are perhaps too restless...
but until then... I'll - purr-purrWE - enjoy them here.

Otherwise this past week was scrappy... I did a little this and a little that...
I would like to finish another project, but what it would be... quick and easy...

Atleast it won't be Gardener's Journal...

 Finally yesterday evening I put it on the frame and started to quilt...

 ... and it didn't take a long to realize...

 ... this is not for me...
I want GJ to be soft and cosy quilt... so I'm using quite heavy batting... and that was not very wise, because I'm really poor hand quilter... so I think dearB can do it better... then there is also some hope to finish it in July...

 But what shall I do then?... besides school projects of course ....

Maybe Another Schnibble...
... a deep sigh... hopeless...

I hope your weekend will be more reasonable than mine ;o)

HAPPY SEWING!!!!

Hi Satu,
the birds are simply beautiful, and Fenix is very nosy.... tststs, did he want to catch one of the birds?
Gardeners Journal will be pretty no matter how you quilt it, and I think you should make another Schnibbles if you feel like it.

Hello there, I have just started following your Blog. I love the little birds...very sweet! Fenix made me giggle...cheeky kitty! I think it a shame you won't continue to hand quilt your Gardeners Journal...your quilting looks lovely to me.

Those little birds are so cute and Fenix is just a cat doing cat things (lol). Good luck with your other projects, but you can cross one project of your to- do- list.

Jeanne kirjoitti...

Beautiful birds! They must really be life-like to interest Fenix.

Elävän näköiset linnut, kun kissakin innostuu niitä tutkimaan :) Kauniit pörröpäät !!!

Your photo of Fenix with the bird cross stitching made me smile. He is such a character. The little birdies are so cute. I hope you keep up with quilting the Gardener's Journal. Try using quilting thread. It is much better if you batting is fat. Especially if it is a polyester. That's all my friends and I use.

I just LOVE your little birdies. Oh, poor Fenix, can't even chase them away. Hope he doesn't get frustrated ...
