Hello Dear Friends! After a long time our post doesn’t begin with vof vof! I hope you have had wonderful time, perhaps got fabric presents and hopefully relaxed!
Yesterday I went for ‘gardening’ with Hanna. Hanna enjoyed the long grass … can you pick her …
You may remember some of these blocks. Once I wanted to make ‘granny square’ blocks because I never made any even there are so many beautiful quilts made with them. Only I didn’t pay enough attention for the colours and I didn’t want to cut away all the white corners, so I made small changes and ended up with ‘disappearing grannies’. If someone knows real name for that block, I would like to learn!
There she is – my sweet Hanna! She has surely hunting dog blood in her because she enjoyes so much snuggling and searching outside. She loves to roll around on the grass, which Nero hardly ever does.
Those blocks with flowers are an other story. My dear blog friend, Judith sent to me a beautiful charm pack and I have saved those flowers for something … I think for this quilt! That dark blue fabric looks a little bit too strong now but when you see what other blocks there will be, I think it’s good.
Usually I make quite small quilt blocks or at least with small pieces and now it feels strange to make so big and simple blocks. I haven’t made a real quilt for a long time and un-welcome thought started to stay in my mind: ‘I can’t make a quilt because I don’t need it’ – hei – help me now – that’s very wrong way to think – right! There is many other things we don’t need and still we make or buy them. And even we don’t need a quilt there may be many reasons why we need to make them! Correct?
So I shall make single size quilt and try the wadding hb brought to me a while ago from Athens. I think it’s going to make a lovely, puffy, snuggling quilt! I have already name for this quilt but that you will learn when I show you the rest of the blocks.
While we were ‘gardening’ with Hanna, hb and Nero went for ‘sailing’ …
Group of little boats left from the harbour …
I don’t feel comfortable in a boat or even ship, but I love these little boats and the colours on this painting! Sea Pottery is so great and fun material for many creations.
Only few days left from this year … I want to collect photos and make some mosaics from this years quilts and other sewings – perhaps that is a nice way to start new year – looking back what have been done and what should/could be done in the future.
If I don’t see you before the New Year, I (we all here) like to wish you Happy New Year and all the best for the 2014!!!
Thank you so much for the year 2013! You have been the best company and I enjoy always so much sharing our crafts and changing our thoughts and ideas! I am looking for to start the new year with you and do my best to write interesting, beautiful and helpful posts!
Take care and relax!
Hugs and kisses from all of us!
