Vof vof dear friends! Teje is busy with stitiching the quilt so I thought it’s time for me to fix a gift away!
I had a birthday last month but we were too busy to celebrate it in my blog so this is now for my birthday! I’m now 10 years young. To have a birthday with ‘around years’ like 10, is Special … they say, I don’t know. But that’s why I chose this time different present for you.
I made this bracelet especially for you! I hope you don’t mind me wearing it. I’m very careful model and never move at all when I’m wearing something to show in my blog.
This bracelet is made with different beads, sewn on leather cord and then I have sewn little beads on the sides. When I know the winner, I’ll ask your size and if this is too big, I’ll make an other one in your size.
I found a great, little calendar with photos from GREECE and thought that this would be nice for you. They are bookmarks … one for each month. I like the photo in the cover and the funny letters! Blue and white are so …. blue and white … just Super! Colours of the sea and sky!
This bracelet if from Trikimia’s NEW collection. If you have a moment, step in to our shop: ‘TRIKIMIA’.
Tuesday we had pin soup! This time I basted the quilt on the floor by all the ‘rules of art’. First washed the floor, then taped the backing fabric on it, then spread out well the fleece (which I’m often using for wadding as I can’t get thin, cotton wadding here and ordering is very expencive) and then the same for the quilt Top. I like to say about the fleece that it Works well. It makes light and very nice quilt. Quilting it by hand is also comfortable. But it you can use natural material, that would be my choise.
When I started to quilt I had a serious problem about the wadding and then one quilter friend told to me that she uses fleece. So don’t let the lack of Materials stop you if you like to make quilts! I started with some up-cycled Fabrics and what ever I found from my stash. Now I’m very happy to say that slowly I have managed to gather a good collection … of course we always ‘need’ more but I’m happy with my Fabrics! And there are many NEW to show to you.
Spoon helps a lot when closing the pins. I have now curved safety pins; they are good but a little bit hard to close so the spoon helps to save your nails. For the quilting I chose Perle no 8 cotton in green because I want to add some grass and walk paths on this quilt.
This time I quilt in the living room watching movies! The part of the quilt I’m are stitiching is on my lap and the rest is on the table to avoid my fur flying on the quilt (I still manage to throw hairs here and there).
So back to my Gift Away. If you like to win my birthday present, leave me a comment on this post. If you follow me, you have a second chance by leaving an other comment telling me how you follow. If you like to share this gift away in your block, I shall add your name once again to the lottery bowl. Let me know if you linked to my gift away.
As I like mysteries, I have again one question for you. Tell me in your comment what you think here is …
My gift away is open to all my friends and I shall pick the winner 6th of November 2014.
I have a wonderful crochet Project going on but didn’t have time to tell about that yet. Here is a little sneaky peaky for you. One of you made me to start this! but more about this on an other time. Oh, how I enjoy colours!
After all that jewelry modelling we needed a good revart … and we got good doggy sticks!
Now I leave you to wonder what there is in that mystery photo … do your best and don’t forget to tell me what you think it is. Here is a little decoration I made for you …
… and me … I chose the background by my self and didn’t want to turn…
Do you see the funny tin with cows and feta cheese?! It’s not actually called feta if it’s from cow’s milk. To be named as Feta Cheese it has to be made with sheep’s milk. I thought to make this ‘trash tin’ to my sewing room … but perhaps I just put a flower pot in it. I’m not sure if I want to have cheese in my sewing room.
Now I wish you all GOOD LUCK!!! Hope to see you in the ‘Blogger’s Quilt Festival’! The button is on my sidelist, so by clicking that magic button, you step into the festival!
Hugs and kisses from rainy Crete! Wow, I can feel how the thursty trees and flowers enjoy the water and they look like growing in the eyes!
