Vof vof! Great to see you friends! Yes we have a problem here … she has … she has no idea what to do with her new fabrics! She likes :PAYG (=plan as you go) and there she is now, without any plan … going who knows where …
At least she has done some cutting and loves her new ‘Hex N More’ Ruler!
She waited these fabrics like the moon to rise and now she’s not even sure about the colours?! I said she should have picked the other bundle with greens but did she listen to me? She cut the jewel with her own way because didn’t like to cut all the strip so wide. She has cut now one jewel, one half hexy and several triangles from each fabric.
This ruler is fantastic. Super easy to use with great tutorial and Info coming with it. It can be used for so many different shapes and sizes. Absolutely worth of every penny.
Then began the problem … how to fix them. Oh boy, you can’t believe how hard that can be. There should never be too many possibilities! It was hours like this: could it be like this … or this … no, not those colours together … that print is too busy here etc. etc.
… and where shall we put the white … there has to be white! If you are in trouble with your plan, take a photo. After changing hundreds of times those patches, she was somehow happy with these …
… and seeing this photo, she thought that there could be white around the jewel-triangles … yes, perhaps … I think I’m done with this and like to out to chase that cat on the tree! Wow, in the morning I chased one cat all around the garden and then she jumped on the fence where I couldn’t reach and was teasing me from there. Of course I had to say loudly that this is my area and she doesn’t have any business here.
By the way, do you see that she finally sew one block – great job for today! I do hope she can finish few more until it’s bed time. I realized that last time we forgot to show you our new design wall. Hey, it’s very simple but on it we can design, so it is design wall …
It is a fleece blanket (Ikea) on the wood stick which is tight with fabric ribbons to two hooks which you can put over the door. We have stuffed these closets whit things that we don’t usually need so we don’t need to open these door often. Only of course just after fixing this thing, we had to search something form the last closet.
And here is our sewing room … and me …
We are now happy with Hanna because we can come to this room, too. When we had the sewing attic, only Nelli was able to go up there.
Hanna likes to be under the table …
There are lots of things stored in this room … not everything is related to sewing or our materials. Mainly the right side is sewing stuff, far on the left are yarns and then on the left side it’s just ‘stuff’. Soon we get bigger table and that will help a lot … I’m not sure if there is space for ironing then.
I think this is quilter’s jewel! Could the selvage be more sweet! If I would tell some of those doggies who pass my gate, that I love those little stitches on the edge, I’m sure they would think I’m form an other planet! But, really, aren’t they the cutest ever!
Oh, too silly talk, better make some coffee. Soon the neighbours wake up from their siesta sleep and I can go out to bark those those cats and dogs who walk on the street. Did you pick the little bear? I’ll so you soon where he is dancing.
By, by for now! Thanks for being my friend and reading my stories! Hugs and Kisses!
PS. Should I start Instagram with my name or my blog’s name?
