Näpertelyä...

... since last time...
I have been tinkering...

with a thicker cotton yarn...
(a butterfly pattern can be found in a book written by Arne & Carlos)

... and with a thinner cotton yarn...
This month 'Gentle Art' is the Vintage schnibbles quilt.

 I sewed and pieced all 25 spool blocks together for the top... but then I had to make - again - decisions! Yes... what kind of borders I would like to have? I think the original pieced border is too restless(?) for my 'Gentle Art'.
But you won't never believe...
this time I got a real mad idea to crochet a border lace myself!
I have no clue, when it will be crocheted... so far 13 tiny pieces is crocheted, what is enough for one border...

And... so that life wouldn't be too easy ;o)...

... after I had sewn the last block of the 2013 Designer Mystery BOM called 'April Showers' (the block pointed by the yellow arrow), I decided not to follow the instructions of the finishing kit.
When I became such a rebel? Or do I only try to be a little too creative...
in a fool way?

Here is the all twelve blocks...

 ... in Fenix's way ;o)

KRR... I had to iron the blocks again!

We wish you a HAPPY WEEK!!!

Luovuus kunniaan, kuka on sanonut, että mallia pitäisi seurata alusta loppuun ;) Pitsi-idea on hieno, jaksa vain loppuun!

It looks like you have some competition with Fenix in the design area. I love your crochet and I think it will add a pretty border to your quilt. Busy, busy again.

Luovuus taitaa asua Kymenlaaksossa! Usuta sitä välillä hiukan koilliseenkin! Pitsi-idea on ihanan erilainen, väri ja pitsin kuvio sopivat kivasti kokonaisuuteen. Minusta ei yhtään hulumpi idea!

The butterfly is beautiful! Thank you so much for sending it to me! I like it very much! Just like the little "K" you made for me!

Fenixin näkemys on mielenkiintoinen! Fenix' vision is very interesting! Hieno virkattu reunus tulossa. Hyvä idea! Nice crocheted frame on the way. What a good idea!
