Hi! I hope you are fine! I’m busy but can’t help thinking all the time paper piecing. Both my wip projects are paper pieced. I am quilting the ‘Summer Wine’…
How hard it can be sometimes to find a way how to quilt? I didn’t get any good idea. I stitched one hexagon as you see above, but it doesn’t show well so I thought it’s waste of time and I continued with circles …
This is my favourite block with roses! Now I have quilted circle on each block and try to find how to continue.
The quilting doesn’t show as much I would like, but on the other hand I don’t want to use more colours, only the cream. Should I make more circles randomly … in some order … or something else?
This is my other favourite block with the green in the middle and orange around!
Other thing in my mind (it has really stucked in my thoughts) is the Forest QAL. Those forest theme foundation paper pieced blocks. I think all the time, what I would like to make and I get new ideas for new blocks. I hope to have time to add also my own block. For me forest is Finnish forest, so that quilt is going to have ‘things’ from Finnish forest.
This is the next one to add to my forest. I love ferns and I was really happy to see this pattern. My fern is ready but I prefer to have better time to take nice photos before showing it. There has to be a new block now – I can’t wait to see what it is! And then still one block, and then all the blocks are ‘out’. Then we should create something with these amazing blocks.
The smallest pieces are still missing here. I coulnd’t have guessed that I like so much this – it is so much fun and challenge to make these beautiful and difficult blocks. I want to thank those ladies who shared these! It is so much work – believe I know now! I tried to make a pattern for one drawing! I did it, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever sew it. I don’t know if I made it too complicated but that was the only way I managed. Perhaps I’ll show it one day.
Often we forget that our ‘every day’ views could be nice to see for some one else (they are nice to us also, but ‘usual’) … so here are some of my last days views. Yesterday I saw a cat-mom out with her three tiny babies. This little one was following her mom and fixed the place to p… and then covered it as mom did. Only she was so tiny that when she was dragging the ground, her back legs were on the air and she almost felled on to her nose! It is so much fun to see what they do and how they discover new things.
She is mom of three (also). These babies are a little bit bigger. First time I met them they were affraid, but now they know that I don’t go too close and they let me stop to take a photo.
Then there are some cats (our Nelli) who doesn’t need to take care of babies, just herself and her garden. She has quite regular day rutin. In the middle of the day and afternoon she is always in this part of the garden. In the morning she is always sleepy (after hunting at night) and often she uses the opportunity of a free chair to have a good sleep.
It would be easy to think that she just enjoyes her life, but I know everyone has their own worries. Someone is working and someone is having holidays …
Unfortunately I’m not a boat-person, but it really looks beautiful and anjoyable! I hope you enjoy yourself even you are at work or on holidays! I try to mix my days with both – even a short moment doing your favourite thing, can feel holiday!
I’m joining to my favourite linky parties! All the buttons are on my sidelist, so you can visit them any time you like!
Thank you so much for your amazing comments about my ‘Hungry Deer’! It is so important to hear your thoughts and engouragement! I wish you wonderful week!
