Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Planning today …


… to start NEW quilt! With my NEW Fabrics! Hello dear friends – so nice you came to see what I’m doing here … pretending to be so busy and not much has appeared to my blog posts. I do hope that changes soon when it turns to autumn.

quilt plans with paper

They look fantastic – or what?! Unfortunately they are not Fabrics! I thought that i need to practise First with Paper to use my NEW ruler. This takes time and I would love to catch the Fabrics but I don’t dare to cut them before I’m sure what to do.

Fancy Free fabrics

Happy cloth pecks! Happy Fabrics!


I missed some colour on our ‘outside’ kitchen table. I enjoy having my breakfast here, lunch and often also afternoon coffee.

colourful yarn

I had something colourful in my mind but this idea didn’t go any further … some other little ideas will be seen soon.


I love little rosies, pinks and others … didn’t find anything yellow, so have to make something yellow. But today I’m making plans for a NEW quilt Project. Looking for inspiration from Pinterest.

lunch time

Lunch time today … Paper is still empty but something I have in my mind. There they are my sweet Fabrics in the sunshine!

quilt inspiration

Can you guess which one here inspires me mostly today? I have in my mind in fact three main ideas and it’s very difficult to choose between them. They are quite different. Perhaps it’s better to make few testing blocks and then decide which one to continue.

We may have rain in the next few days so today was laundry day and all of us enjoyed lovely cool Air from the sea. Can you pick Nelli?


She is so sweet girl and has settled to the NEW place just amazingly well. She is now 10 years and stays more close to home and sleeps all the night next to me. Can’t teach her to sleep in her own bed. I made her most comfortable bed on a chair next to me but she insists to sleep ‘glued’ to me.

Thank you for visiting my crafty corner! I hope you have some enjoyable projects going on and I wish you warm and sunny autumn days! (this is my new nail colour!)

Linking at my favourite linky parties – all the buttons are on my sidelist!

Fancy Free

Sorry, but now I have to go to pet my Fabrics … how can I cut them tomorrow!

    I am sorry I am a bit behind with my commenting, I get all the post in my phone and read them as I run somewhere, but commenting is always left “for later”. Beautiful fabrics, and what a wonderful view to have a coffee break, I love it!

    Wishing you happy and sunny autumn days!

    • Thank you so much! I’m sure the sea and all the sunshine here inspires me a lot! If I were sewing in Finland I guess my palet would be different. x Teje
