Hi Dear Friends! Sunday Stitching sounds nice and I try to sew every Sunday something enjoyable.
We had lovely dinner with friends and because I had emptied the dining table, it was could time to baste the ‘garden’ quilt. If you like to see the finished quilt top, it’s HERE.
In our garden there is now only yellow flowers – lots of little yellows – and always red geraniums. Marimekko’s ‘Unikko’ napkins made happy spring theme.
In the evening I had the basted quilt and my quilting Perle cottons ready to go. This time I use polyester wadding which is a little bit thicker and I think it will make nice, fluffy quilt. Backing is plain white.
Usually I quilt with white, turquoise, orange or with other bright colours picked from the quilt I’m stitching. With this quilt darker colours had stucked to my mind. So I thought I’ll follow my instinct and started with dark brown. Surely I shall add other colours but most likely darker and not white. At the moment I stitch straight Lines without any marks – about in the middle of the squares. I like to think they are Ant’s trails!
Sun was unbelievable hot today and Nero chose cool place on – or in the grass …
I can’t help thinking what project to take with me to Finland … I think this time I shall fly with paper pieces …
… but not with octagons as I used for the ‘Summer Wine’ quilt. They were really nice but those little squares between were p in a. Now I have decided to have fun with hexagons! I printed already some little 2″ hexies. That will be hobby project – just for fun and no plans what it should become.
I already checked that the 2″ hexagons are perfect for 2.5″ squares and those I have ‘few’ left overs! You can imagine how difficult it is not to start to sew right away!
Saturday was also for stitching and this project was quick enough to get finished in same day. Sorry, can’t show it yet.
Winter has been gentle to us and almond trees have had flowers already several weeks. Often I think about photos when I see that they don’t have anymore flowers! Once I was in time.
With Hanna we found one lonely orange from the garden … we don’t have orange trees.
Laundry day is not so bad if you have happy ‘tools’. I just need to make bag for my ‘laundry boys’ Look my TUTORIAL how to make ‘Laundry Boy Bag’! Many call them clothes pegs!
Sometimes Nelli may leave the sunny table outside. If I’m in my sewing attic, she like to keep me company. She shouldn’t have any complains about her own bed front of the sunny window!
Every weekend I like to make treasury list and this week I made trip to forest for blueberries. If you like blue, you may enjoy my delicous ‘BLUEBERRY STORY’!
Busy week as ahead and I think this quilt has to wait till next ‘Sunday Stitching’.
This is fun: What Flip Flops you would choose?! I want with dog paws! Have a look, you will smile!
