Hi friends – I give the word to Nero, he has been resting all the day and I feel sleepy … Vof – happy Friday to all of you! I have been sleeping a lot today and also took some super vitamins + naminami for my legs, so I’m feeling great! And I’m happy to show you something fun …
It has been like a spring this week! Sunny and so warm – just amazing! I have picked many little flowers around …
… and always so many birds … my garden is full of birds! I love to listen their singing so I thought to invite few to my home …
I’m sure you can’t guess where they are singing! … this fabric came with hb from Ikea a while ago. We love notes but not so much black, so we had to add some colours! Other thing we didn’t like (anymore) was the small curtain with crochet flowers. It was nice curtain but we have been watching it now … how about just too long!
So we made a new curtain for the bathroom. There is a simple white cotton backing and the birds are sewn by raw edge applique method – which we love as you know! We left the birds very simple and didn’t start to sew legs etc. but wings we made because they look nice. And just because we had the flower in the exact same colour, we had to put that too. Flower had a purple center and we prefered blue so we made it on our own.
The truth is that the loops are still missing and I do hope that tomorrow we can see this curtain on the window and here the birds singing in the bathroom. Do you sing in the shower? I don’t, so I’m happy to have someone else to do the singing!
Speaking about bathrooms the ‘donkey-bridge’ leads to Nelli’s new loo. Nelli loves to be outside but she prefers to have her ‘hmmm’ inside. That’s because Nelli was very ill when she came to us, and she stayed the first year mostly at home. Now she is the queen of the garden and enjoyes every part of the countrylife! But here you go …
You know that cats like to be clean and they throw the cat litter from their feet all around when leaving the ‘sand box’. Now after ten years I got ‘the great idea’ to put her litter in a big box, where she can shake her legs as much as she likes! I just wish all this thing could be in the garden!
One thing is sure that Nelli is the only cat in the world who has a loo with hippoes, fishes and a bird!
PAPER PIECING: I have just seen two beautiful paper piecing blocks! They have been made with foundation-piecing technic. I still haven’t tried that but these two blocks are really inspiring!
* “Scottie-Dog” made by Judith at “Just Jude”
* “Little Cat’ made by Kristy at ‘Quiet Play’
I found the cat block from Janine at ‘Rainbow Hare Quilts’ – she made her part for the bee quilt with these cat blocks!

We have some new ideas – how else – not a moment without planning and thinking – I do hope someone has time to brush my beautiful fur tomorrow – and of course to play!
Hmmm…. I guess I have to leave you now … Nelli just lift her head from the chair! She is sleeping often on the chair under the dining table and I forget her totally and then I’m so surprised when she gets up suddenly! That chair has a lamb wool on it and Nelli loves that. But then she loves also her bed next to the window in the sewing attic – there she has a little, cozy ‘net’ in the basket with a small patchwork blanket.
I leave you with these birdies and hope their singing leads you to a wonderful weekend! Oh – almost forgot to ask: should I sew (or Teje in fact) more around the birds or do you think that one stitching line looks enough?
