Hello! Welcome to new Nero’s Post and Patch! This is the first official post from our new blog space and I’m so happy to see you here! These last days has been so wonderful with your overwhelming wishes and sweet words! Thank you so much! It is w.i.p wednesday and here it’s all about stars …
Quilting has begun and I hope this quilt is going to be in use very soon! Finally the pattern became more simple than I thought. I wanted to use the templates I got from my friend and they made great big stars! I wanted to make single size quilt so there was space only for a simple border.
I have already thought so much how to make the other pair for the ‘shirt’ quilts. I’m almost sure that I use again diamonds but with different design. This is not the most comfortable quilt to stitch because of the ‘shirt’ fabrics but then again I hope they are very ‘dog-friendly’! Quilting fabrics are softer and easier to quilt.
Yesterday it was ‘throwing chairs’ here! Any idea what happened? In greek we say ‘ριχνει καρεκλες’ when it’s raining very much. And it really did! And all the day; so much rain that I think there were some tables, too falling from sky! But surprise – surprise … today we have bright, blue sky, sunshine and over +20 C degrees! I could quilt outside but it’s time to continue new ‘Baby Stars’ quilt.
Still I haven’t decide if I use all these fabrics or if I make double blocks with the same fabrics as the stars are … I think I make them with eight different prints … why not, because I have enough fabrics in matching colours.
First ever photo of Nelli front of a quilt! In Christmas time I folded ‘My Dream Quilt’ over the handrail and today Nelli was sitting just perfectly front of it! Beautiful green eyes!
W.i.p. Wednesday linky party is going on at ‘Freshly Pieced’ and I’m so happy to join the fun! Have a look how our friends have started this year!
Next time I shall have a tutorial for you. I was asked how I made those pinwheel ornaments and I’m very happy to show you. Even Christmas is over, these pinwheeles make also beautiful brooch and decoration for any time of the year!
Thank you so much for visiting Nero’s new post and patch! I hope you enjoy our new look and better orginezed space! I have still many things to do around here – for example the tutorial page is not ready. Anyway all the time I try to improve things here. Please take care that even our blog name is the same, the address is now www.nerospost.wordpress.com!
Nero sends you wishes and he is happy that the new year celebration is again over for an other year. He is so scared of the fireworks and shooting! This time we tried relaxing pills ‘Serene-UM calm’ from the vet and they helpped quite well. He was worried and restless but not totally in panic as usually. I gave the pills only the New Years Eve, 2 in the lunch time and 2 more late in the evening as our vet recommended.
Have a wonderful beginning of the New Year and see you soon!
