Hello Dear Friends! Good Month to everyone! Did you get tricked? I almost did and we had a good laugh!
Small octagons are all the time some where near to me … slow process as it’s ment to be … other wise I need to start new ‘carry with’ project.
Hey, look, there is something in the box …
Yesterday we had help to cut lots of grass around in the garden. Still there is enough to collect . Cats were fighting some where and Nero started to shout to them and Hanna got worried about all this – dear Hanna, don’t worry, let’s go to play …
Want to get a big kiss?! Nero had his favourite tennis ball in his mouth and the most loved red ball under his paw but then he just dropped them for the photo. Hanna is not so grazy about ball game but sometimes we play quite well and she enjoys that.
There they are happy octagons in my grandfather’s paint box … some octagons have been sewn together already …
I like to baste some and then sew some. I don’t think I could baste hundreds of octagons and then start to sew them. For me this project is good because I don’t have any plan or pattern. I just make what I feel in that moment.
I need pink fabric! and flower fabric! and and and … but I have to work with blue and beige …
These are going to be the ‘pair’ quilt. I made the ‘Stars and Shirts’ for our bed and because I can’t make very big quilt, I decided to make a pair. The other one is with big stars and I think this pattern is great choise for the second quilt. Fabrics are exactly the same and both patterns have hexagons even in different way.
When I made ‘Orange Stones’ quilt, I found the pattern from Julie at ‘Jaybird Quilts’. That was a wonderful pattern and quick and easy. Julie has made fantastic tutorial for hexagons and there are many ways how to mix your pieces and get different look. From then I had this one in my mind – how you can call these … ‘swirrels’? tell me if you have a good word!
Nero has just amazing fur now; it’s so long and there is a lot! I try not to think that soon it fells all over … and Hanna will leave enough fur also. But till then I just love to see how beautiful they both are! Now unfortunately work and cleaning is waiting for me, but I’ll manage thinking that some little octagons are waiting for me … and the almost finished knitted jacket (not much missing anymore) … and of course my sweet puppies!
