Hello Friends! February is here … when January passed?! Absolutely good time for new begins and looks! I was at the hairdresser and when she had been cutting for a while other hairdresser passed: “great, you make a big change’! Mine: “if we do something, we do it well”! I’m very much like that. But first about the border and binding …
Today with rain and poor light inside I settled few possibilities for the narrow border and binding. I have put numbers under the photos, so if you like you can vote for your favourite.
Few explinations: I want to use something from my stash and not to make a frame to pop out but a border to gather the the blocks and colours and to make the edge secure.
I have also one beautiful brown batik (like someone suggested so well) and I tried that – it would be beautiful but I want to save it with my other batiks for something special.
I have also black, big hand written letters on white but forgot to try that. It could work.
Last alternative is with only binding. That could be also orange or white but somehow I like this vintage looking light green with tiny flowers.
So, I hope you can help me to decide and continue this quilt! I want to start hand quilting! Don’t hesitate to say your opinion even you disagree with my alternatives. Perhaps you have much better idea! But unfortunately I’m not going for fabric shopping.
Then today’s second subject: January Mosaic. Oh boys! All these blogging years I didn’t make monthly mosaics. I don’t know why, I just didn’t. Too bad, because now it would be really great to see what on earth I have been doing all these months! Now when I finally catched myself from the neck and made one, I hardly find anything to add there!
I can’t believe that my January looks so poor! I was wondering what I have been doing and made an other mosaic with few of the other things I have spend my time …
Third subject today is blog stats. It’s nice to see now and then what happens and if there is someone who likes to read our blogs – right?! I am so happy to see from the stats that I have been doing something that you like!

For all that I think it’s fair to show you me and my new look. It’s nice to see who we are dealing with! I followed my hair dresses words …
Can you guess how many shoots it took to find one decent photo to use in all the ‘hundred and one’ profils! Now you understand also why I need Nero and Hanna to model for my knittings! Please don’t ask to see my ‘old look’. I took few photos before hair cutting, but …
And to make the change well, I changed the header and background for my blog, too. I like to change things. During the years I have had all kind of hairs and perhaps 5 times really long hair and then everything between that and the ‘school boy’ look.
Many of my glasses you can see HERE. I had a fun eye glass Project with Firmoo and I made quilted pouch with vintage glasses applique – you can see that and my ‘Dream Glasses’ in THIS POST! I still want those glasses!
I leave your with this sunny beach view. Someone is preparing his fishing boat. I havE been writing about my Greek views in Trikimias’ blog, but now the blog doesn’t appear. I moved it to a hosting company and need to load all the content again. Something to spend my time next week! I let you know when it’s done and you can come to visit me here in Greece!
Thousands of thanks reading my blog and leaving beautiful and fun comments! Thank you for being so Super all the time I have been blogging! I’m not going anywhere – I love to make little photo stories for you! Sometimes more often, sometimes not so often. Summer may be again very busy, but then Nero will write his stories!
And I shall go to Finland! Yes, two weeks in April and I promise postcards from there! But till then I have a quilt to finish and much more …
Hugs and Kisses!
