A New Year - A NEW START

It's almost here...
The last day of the 2009.

This year was very hard to me
in my personal life -
I will never forget it!

I think that
I didn't have survived all this year round
without your kindness and support!

This quilting blogging wonderland
has given me a lot of new friends
and I have visited many blogs, where
I have seen a lot of beautiful projects.
I will never forget those either...

Already today I know ;)))
there will be a lot of new and fun coming
in the next year!!!

WELCOME 2010!!!

PS. While you are visiting, you can listen some music
and watch the video, if you like;)
... just scroll down the page...

...with or without you...

sing with Bono;)

... we'll shine like stars in the winter light.
One heart, one hope, one love...

Dear Santa

Dear Santa / Rakas Joulupukki,

I know it has been REALLY LOOOOONG time since I last wrote and left my letter to you on the bench of the porch. If I remember right it was very late 60's then. Oh, the time has really gone fast! And the world has also changed a lot... I'm not going to leave this letter anymore on the bench, but I'll post it as a modern style;) And I have heard that you have very busy helpers over the seas too... here on Fat Quarter Shop. So this time I have to write - atleast try to - in english.

You might have noticed that I have learned a lot about handicrafts over these past decades. So in this year my biggest wish / dream would be to get a fat quarter bundle... and exactly this one

from Fat Quarter Shop. If you, my dear Joulupukki, are wondering why... it's because I really need MORE PINK & BROWN fabrics to finish some of my UFO quilts and why not also starting some new;)))

I hope you don't have too cold there at Korvatunturi in the North-Finland. We have had this week quite cold weather here in southern coast.
Besides it...
Would you, please, send warm hugs and regards also to Rudolf (Petteri Punakuono)!
We are waiting for you to come...
and bring some light and happiness to our home.

With love / rakkain terveisin
Satu ja Fenix

Southern Notes

December 8, 1861. Eldress Nancy Elly Moore wrote this note in her diary

(text copied from Rosemary Youngs' Civil War Diary Quilt book

... and here it's the beginning of the last CWD block in this year

Fabrics are

green: Lecien's Mrs March's Coll.

pink: Paula Barnes' Bonnie Blue Basics

cream: Quilt Gate's Mary Rose Coll.

Block 16. Southern Notes is finished

It was quite easy, perhaps TOO easy...

because there is some bulky in the middle and I should have been more careful with the seams...

I began my CWD quilt in the end of January 2009 and until now I have sewed 35 of 121 blocks.

Hmm... with this pace it will be finished in 2012!
Maybe I'll try to sew more blocks during 2010... 2012 feels so distant...

I have planned to sew next block on the 1st of January. It is block number 29 named Remembrances,

but before it there is so many Christmas projects...;))

Independence Day - First Christmas Cards

We - finnish people - are celebrating our Independence today, on the 6th of December.

To me it always means that I start to make christmas cards...

... what a mess on the cutting mat;)

Few hours...

... and there was some almost finished christmas cards;)))
to the three special ladies...
over the seas;)
Now I'm going to start my 'relaxing' part of the Independence Day
- a good dinner with few sips of wine...

Relaxing Second Advent to Every One of You!!!

Draft Threat

Still half an hour left...
before it's the 5th December here in Finland.
So I won't be late with my next CWD block...

December 4, 1861 Nancy Elly Moore wrote in her diary

About this time there were many rumors afloat that the young man of Kentucky would be drafted and forced to take up arms against the Government of the United States. With these reports, many young man of our neighborhood, who were determined to remain steadfast to their loyal principles in support of the government of our Fore Fathers, were induced to leave their homes and seek refuge in other states. (quote from Civil War Diary Quilt book written by R. Youngs)
...and here it is;)

It has been a while when I last time foundation pieced the CWD -block. And it felt fine;) although Fenix was little bit difficult tonight; teasing me with his playing with the pool of the thread... So it took more time to finish than usual, and a little quarrel with F...

The red (or pink) fabric is Judie Rothermel's Sturbridge Village Miniatures I, multicoloured (background) fabric is designed by Jo Morton and white fabric in the middle is again the fabric which range I don't know.

Oh, suddenly my eyes are feeling so heavy... it was early wakening this morning. It might be better to go to the bed... before I'll fall asleep---

And relaxing weekend with your stitches;)
ja jos emme tapaa ennen sunnuntaita

Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää!
