Hello dear friends! What would be the best way for you to begin a NEW week? Mine was to wake up for a rain (after 5 months) and to get a phone call from a postman.
I woke up for a strange sound … rain? is it really rain? Yes! Fresh air, smell of rain and thursty soil! Finally sense of autumn – my favourite season! I had perfect morning-coffee moment on the terace, with dogs and cat, of course.
I enjoyed watching the different sky scene! That beautiful bright blue sky can be boring after months and months. As you know I need to see some white, too. But this was not the scene yet … my phone rang … ‘Good Morning! This is your NEW postman. I have a packet for you and it doesn’t fit in the mailbox. Can you come to pick it?’ YES, right away!
He was still there and I had a chance to thank him for the help that I didn’t need to go till town to the post Office.
I thought to show the parcels with Nelli because she was sitting near to me. She sniffed them quickly and then jumped away … if she just knew what there was inside …
… cats, yes little cutest cats!!! I love all these Fabrics but those cats are something else! This was a surprise delivery from my Finnish quilter friend. Wow, I’m so excited and also surprised how well she knows me – these are exactly ‘me’! Thank you so much dear ‘L’!!! Her beautiful blog is ‘Tilkkutie’, in Finnish but there are lots of beautiful quilting photos for your inspiration (if you don’t speak Finnish).
There was also this magnet … what can I say … it will be my treasure! It says ‘ I have a sewfluenza’! (my free translation). The Red fabric is from Marimekko! Iiik, I’m so thrilled to get some Marimekko – and a print that I can’t remember! How on earth I think I don’t like red – I love Red! it’s time to admit that! You know better than me when watching my photos.
Here is the magnet from behind! Thank you again so much!!!
But this was not all?! Yes, this was really amazing start for this week! My ‘winning’ Fabrics came already! Normally it takes two weeks to get here from US, but now they came in one week! So, ta-daa, here they are …
They are fat quarter bundle ‘Fancy Free’ by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake Designs. Thank you so much Jane from ‘Quilt Jane’ and ‘Fat Quarter Shop’, for these most beautiful Fabrics! I was the lucky one to win $ 50 gift certificate from Jane’s give away!
I had a hard time to choose, but I’m so so happy I picked these Fabrics! I love each piece and feel sorry to brake this sweet bundle, but now they need shower to be ready … I’m planning to have holidays next week and to devote myself to all these …
You can see how perfectly all these fabrics go together! Those kittens and circles are so perfect! As it was cloudy morning, the colours are not so happy like they really are. That on the left side, which looks like ‘mustard’ is lovely, warm yellow. But don’t worry, you will certainly see these many times in future!
My NEW ruler is ‘Hex N More’ by Julie Herman. Julie created this ruler about two years ago and since then it has been in my mind. I am so excited to have it now and start something NEW with it! Ruler is available here in ‘Fat Quarter Shop’.
Nelli saw a stranger (cat) walking in our garden. This time I was quick enough to catch dogs’ attention with coocies and they didn’t run like grazy after the cat. Nero has again sock on his foot because his toe has ‘something’. Most likely he has scratched the nail some where when running after a cat. Why they don’t believe that this garden is taken now?! They pass many times a day like it’s their home and yesterday one came even inside from the kitchen door! So from now on doors closed if I’m not near.
… some where there the cat was walking … fortunately fits through the wire squares to escape if Nero is close.
Oups, Ryan Air passed very low – didn’t have time to get my camera.
We were drying pillows … Nero was relaxing in the ‘coolness’ …
At the weekend I took timeout for sewing and wanted to make a flower. I used Charise’s pattern for paper pieced tulip. Charise’s blog is ‘Charise Creates’ and the pattern is available (for Free) in her Craftsy store.
I thought I could have finished Mini quilt with few tulips, but couldn’t concentrate and made all the time mistakes. Ripping and sewing again … and in the evening I ‘stucked’ to fix design wall. Yes – my First ever design wall – and the most easy! Anyone can make it; I’ll show it to you next time. Don’t expect anything fancy but something that you can make quickly and no need to bu anything (I suppose).
I think I shall go to fill my design wall…
Thank you so much for reading my blog and for writing so lovely comments! I hope your week and September has began as well as mine! Enjoy the autumn and the change of the season!
