Hello! … sorry I had to make first coffee … there was again something strange at this post ‘set up’. Now it looks normal but if it happens again I’ll take photo to ask your help. So, how are you? I hope fine! Finally the weather is changing back to more normal, African dust ‘goes away’ with the fresh wind and we can breathe well! But let me show you my hungry deer who has been waiting …
My deer seems to be more hungry than roaring! He wanted to taste the leaves from Cretan olive tree! I like him and also I’m not sure … that pink and turquoise …
But I do like him and this was (like all of them) so difficult and time consuming block that I’m can’t make an other one, at least very soon. Definitely my forest needs a deer. This block had again some unbelievable small pieces and then of course very thick places. But I made it and I’m so happy!
You know, it’s not just all sewing and playing with fabrics … yesterday I was so tired (sleepy tired) and it was the most hot and dusty day. When cleaning some hours, my face was red like the tastiest tomatoe! In the evening I sew something tiny with green (for this same project). It was still hot in the attic but I had to see how it comes out.
Sorry but nothing about the green yet, today it’s all about the deer. Here he is tasting the wild thyme next to my flowers. …
Then in the middle of the night … forgot to say that the wind was also terrible strong and today having my Finnish friends here, we had to sit inside?! … but at night I woked and didn’t feel sleepy at all … I had so much triangles in my mind … and colours of these blocks.
I have a general idea for a quilt, but it’s very early to say anything. First I have to see the rest of the blocks. Tilll now I have made the Woodpecker (I think it’s my favourite), the Maple Fox and now this Roaring Deer.
Some feathers are ‘must’! and perhaps more green … the flying bird is also almost sure. So that’s the Forest QAL update till now. By the way, this project is all the time in my mind, if you didn’t guess.
‘Quiet Play’ had fantastic idea and started ‘Paper piecing link party’ ! Of course I shall join the fun!
Click the following picture to read the main post for this ‘Forest Quilt Along’. You can still join. It’s very easy to download those amazing and free patterns! I want to say big thank you for the sweet ladies who make these blocks for us – that’s a lot of work! If you like you can make even one block and use it for a pillow, bag or what ever you like.
But I haven’t forgot the ‘Summer Wine’. I have made first testing for the quilting and found at least how I start. Soon I shall continue to quilt it. We blogging quilters have been also busy visiting the ‘Blogger’s Quilt Festival’. There are so much amazing quilts! So beautiful and well made! Fantastic designs, new ideas and inspiration! Worth of visiting if you haven’t already!
Now you think I run to continue with these … I would love to but today I need to sew a little bit something else. I hope you like this hungry deer – anyway you said that the colours are okey. Thank you for helping me to decide, when I was really unsure about this deer and these fabrics!
Have a lovely time and weekend which is already on the door!
