{Dreaming at Dusk} and photos

Nero's post III

Hi dear friends! Dreaming at dusk sounds really nice! My dictionary says that dusk is dark, twilight, grey dawn … I feel that dusk is foggy, twiglight yes, misty … soft pastel colours and greys come to my mind.


I was looking if I can find ‘dusk’ from my photos which usually have lots of colours.


Afternoon in Crete has usually most beautiful soft colours! That time is very short time after the sunset and before the dark.

But let me tell you where this came from.  Rachel at ‘Stitched in Color’ has again Mosaic Contest going on – last moment in fact to join! Theme is {Dreaming at Dust} and she has created once again the most beautiful photo collection to inspire us! There are 2 quilts which I want to make both! And the colours in her post are so so delicious! Sponsor is fantastic ‘Lark Cottons’!…

She has a big smile! It’s fun to make hexagon flowers and to plan what fabrics to use.

scrap mouse

This mouse is my favourite because of her cute, pink ears!

winding ways

‘Winding ways’ is forgotten in a box … waiting to be continued one day.

quilt block

Once turning around the pieces, I liked this option. Perhaps I will make sometimes something with this kind of blocks.

pink rose

Pink may be my favourite colour of rose!

hand quilting

Haven’t made much coocies lately so why not use the cutters for quilting!

Nero's quilt guild meeting

We had a meeting on Sunday and from the morning I started to collect things we might need. Fabrics and scraps, projects to continue, sewing things, quilting magazines and of course goodies! I’m ready!

Nero is stamping

My first project was to try stamping on fabric. I took my letter stamps in wooden box, colours and also few other fun stamps.

I tried stamping label for my quilt guild and puppy paws, my favourites! That’s Hanna’s paw there.

Here they are all in random order! I’m participating the ‘Quilty 365’ where the main idea is to sew one one fabric circle each day for one year. There are other ideas except the circles and I went on with my Fabric Forest idea.

fabric trees

I concider that I started this project 1st of January, even in fact I started already back in December with the mugs.

Now I have made 46 blocks. I allow myself to go futher and not holding exactly on ‘one per day’, because I know there will be days when I’m not able to do these. Also I have found out now how to continue all the year…you understand there can’t 365 tree blocks, or what?! I shall share my year to quarters. So I’ll end up with four small quilts with different themes. And…
