Hello my dear friends! Welcome to see who is today in my garden … in very windy, almost rainy and stormy garden …
He is hiding under a little bush because wind almost took him …
Jippii, I have finished my second block for the ‘Forest’ QAL. There are already two more: feathers and forest with lots of trees, but I’m happy to have two finishes! This time I felt a little bit more confortable with the foundation paper piecing. You remember that the woodpecker was my first ever try. But for my surprise this little fox was more difficult to make. I don’t know if it was me (tired, busy) or if this block really was more challenging.
There were again some super small pieces … and this time I made two mistakes. The other one I noticed after I had made that piece. I didn’t have patient to make all the thing (from copying the paper) again and because it was really small part, I left it. Because of this I made on purpous other mistake to mix the first one. Tell me if you find it.
The other mistake is more obvious but I saw it after I had finished all the block. I don’t tell you what it is, if you don’t find it. Generally I’m happy with this, but if I ever have strength to make this again, I would change a little bit my colour choises.
I start to have some ideas what to make with these forest blocks. I’m looking forward to see what else we shall make … I shall make feathers, perhaps more feathers and I guess there will be a bird, but for the other blocks I don’t have any idea yet. Yesterday when I finished this fox late in the evening, I thought that now I need to relax for a while and make something easier. But today I’m already making plans for this project.
This is part of the ‘Forest’ QAL (=quilt along). Visit the hosting blog to see all the details HERE. To see what we have made till now visit the Flickr HERE. I just went to get the link for the flickr and ‘The Bird’ is out! There is a new block and it’s a flying bird! How can I have now any brake?
On Sunday we were hoping to eat fish outside, but there was so strong wind that our plates were sandy before any food had came to table … we had to leave and look for an other place … finally, unfortunately we were sitting inside but had a wonderful, very late lunch/dinner with sea food.
The sea was just amazingly beautiful …
This is from the south side in ‘Marathi’ and the next one is from North side in ‘Kalathas’.
Saturday we had +32 degrees and this beach was full full of people! On Sunday they had brought first sunbeds but the wind was so strong that now one came … last night it was raining and today in the morning we had only +12 degrees. One more from ‘Marathi’ …
Today I remembered that in spring there will be once again the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I was remembering what quilt I have showed there and if I have any quilt to show this spring. Then I made coffee and opened my computer and there it was: a post from Amy who is the organizer and hoster for this fantastic event! It’s going to be on May 17 – May 31.2013. Look for more details at Amy’s blog: ‘Amy’s Creative Side’.
You may remember that once I wanted to tell you how to make good knot for the sewing thread, I just learnt it after struggling so many years … but then the link I had wrote down, wasn’t the right one … who knows how that happened. No I have run to an other place to see how it’s made. So HERE you are! This blog looks beautiful and interesting … I have to pay a good visit to see it well!
As I mentioned earlier, there is already the next block which is a fantastic bird! I have to leave you now and climb on the ‘mountain’ for ironing. If I try to be very busy, perhaps I can make the bird next weekend. Weekends could be devoted to paper piecing!
Thank you for your supporting words and engouragement for this new for me challenge: foundation paper piecing! I do appreciate if you have any helpful tips and advices! Thank you also for all the sweet comments you write so often! I wish you wonderful week!
