No Aims for October...

... because I'm still lack of sewing inspiration!
(and I'm also lack of writing inspiration)

I stared and stared these options looooooooong time, many hours, I think.
Then I frustrated and decided to do it 
and 'went over the lowest fence'. 

 So this table runner is now ready for quilting and binding.
And who knows, when that will happen...???

Merry, Merry Snowmen Block 1 is ready...
... second block is prepared.
Aren't those snowmen funny at the bus stop?
  
The evenings are dark and without a good light source it's annoying to do applique patterns in the evening.

That's why I dug up yarn stash, I found a nice tweed yarn and I started to knit a cardigan. The back piece is knitted and yesterday I started the other front piece.

Hopefully I finish it...
because it's a time when the last time I knit cardigan till the end. In recent years, I haven't been knitting no bigger things than socks.

I hope that all kinds of INSPIRATIONs will come back soon!
Because it would be nice to show & tell you more than I have recently done...
until then...

HAPPY NEW WEEK!

A Tale Without Name



Sometimes it's difficult to think of a nice and interesting title...


and sometimes it's VERY difficult to decide, how you finish your tablerunner! Although I have a good pattern, I would like to personalize it...





1. Do I sew wider black borders? Maybe not... it looks too furry...

2. Those birds on Funky Fall fabric looks purfect! But maybe not in this tablerunner... makes it look too restless!

3. Maybe the cream background fabric is the best choice?

... or maybe a hint of purr - orange?
What do you think about that, Satu?

This is something to think about more...

Meanwhile I continued with the BOMs.

 Last week I received the fourth block of 2012 Designer Mystery. It's designed by Aneela Hoey.
I'm bit of proud of myself, because this BOM is the only one, which I have been sewn so called in 'normal schedule' - so far...

Oh no, still no idea, what to do with the borders...

 The first block of Merry, Merry Snowmen is almost stitched...
and guess what, 
now I'm thinking, do I embroider them or sew black buttons....
;o) Nice,
 that is enough to think about - the brains won't get rusty...

What about cream borders with quilted vines and stars?
Hmm, might look nice... I'll go and check it now...

See you... and happy new week!

BOMholic is Back ;o)


So it happened
that I had to spend some money other things than the fabrics...
It was really odd feeling to live without computer, but at the same time I noticed how much time it spares.
Would it be wiser to do something else than sit front of this new machine?
Is it only a waste of time?
Although I had a good opportunity to sew and do everything else... I didn't do.... not at least much, which would be of worth mentioning.




Jotain valmista joka kuukausi - työni on tässä kuussa syksyinen Kurpitsa -liina. Mallin on suunnitellut Cheryl Gunn. Aloitin sen viime syksynä ja se on ensimmäinen KONEapplikaatio työni. Kyllä, luit ihan oikein ;o) En ole koskaan aikaisemmin tehnyt pykäpistoja koneella.

My project in Jotain valmista joka kuukausi -challenge is Black Bird's Pumpkin Patch -tablerunner. It's designed by Cheryl Gunn. I started it last fall and it's my very first one machine appliqued work. Yes, I really mean it ;o) I have never done the blanket stitches by machine before this quilt.



Maybe I have too many times told you that I'm addicted to BOMs. Specifically the BOMs, which are designed by Anne Sutton and purchased from Fat Quarter Shop. I know it well that they takes much of time... and money too... BUT a new BOM Pumpkinville is starting in this Autumn...

... and I think, that time and money, which is spent, is worth!
I only hope, when I gave this quilt to someone, she or he will realize it too!

Oh, Fenix... it's a photography time... without you... I suppose???

But purr-hei, the roof of this house doesn't have a cat!
Haven't you noticed it, Satu?
You silly, Fenix!

Let's talk about Anne's other BOM then...

It's Merry, Merry Snowmen.
And I adore these French General's fabrics... deliciously elegant, I think.
Am I silly BOMholic now?

Maybe, but this is perfectly fun BOM rehab life ;o)

It's also fun to see what the other rehabbers have done in the past week!

And can you imagine,
it feels quite good to sit at the front of the computer and 'talk' with you!
Oh, am I computerholic too?

for what it's worth... oli miten oli...
WE Wish YOU an EnJOYable WEEK!!!
