Hi dear friends! Sun is shining and I’m happy even it’s a cleaning day, but because my ‘North Star’ quilt project found new direction!
You remember the reindeer, bird house, grey triangles. They looked nice but I wasn’t very excited to continue. One day I remembered that I have made one grey star and when looking for that I found this blue star, too.
Because I wanted to make a lightful quilt (inspired by Svetlana’s quilt), I finally left out almost all the grey. The big blue star gave me an idea to add some of that colour. It’s a good, cold, winter blue. Remembering how well Svetlana had used that Ikea’s fabric with written numbers, I started to improvise.
Now this project is going somewhere I like. I made few stars with favourite red scraps and used for the middle square very light blue. I had already made the fair isle star, which I really like. I think I shall make an other one.
I really like to make blocks using the knitting patterns. The picture won’t be exactly the same as when knitted, but still very nice.
The woman looked first like a robot but now when she’s finished and on the design wall with the other blocks, I think she looks cute. Next I shall make her husband.
I’m sure that the quilt I have put on the wall in living room (until this is finishes) and Helen’s new book (read about my sweet dreams here) helped me to find my way with this project. I wanted to keep it with less colours and to get a winter/christmas feeling, but still I do need light and happiness. I thought that blue doesn’t fit here but that was exactly what was missing to get a beautiful scandinavian feeling.
These days I have worked long hours with Trikimia’s (our Sea Glass) etsy shop. Shop is open and I shall list new sea glass jewelries almost every day. If you want something magical for yourself or for a present, have a look!
SHIPPING IS FREE for the November! Link is also up on my sidelist.
Let me know if you like a tutorial for reindeer, star and woman/man blocks. I would be happy to do that.
So it was cleaning day today, right? Hmmm … at least downstairs I need to finish. In the evening I’m sitting on the covered red couch watching Downton Abbey with all the sparkling cute lights and hearts on my winter tree!
Have a lovely day! Thank you for reading my stories and writing sweet comments!
