It’s finished!

 

I’ve heard that “done is better than perfect”

and I totally agree with it ;o))

It took a while to sew the blocks,

then it took another while to find the right fabric for the border.

I decided to hand quilt it,

so it also took a while…

But now it’s finished

and I’m happy!

Wishing you a lovely, cozy,

and creative week!

The clouds are getting darker, heavier….

Perhaps the last beautiful autumn days….

Time to sit down and knit….

Color inspiration II

 

I’m still enjoying

the change in seasons.

The days are

as beautiful as cozy.

2012_1007photosblog0146

But,

the leaves have started to

fall…

2012_1007photosblog0012

and soon

they’ll be

blown by the wind,

and gone

 

I want

to have more of

these beautiful color combinations…

I want

to work with them…

2012_1007photosblog0145 

Just had to go through the stash,

search for

the right fabrics…

even

buy more fabrics…

Sew

as if I was painting…

Just to keep the autumnal colors

near me, in my living room .

The “Flying South Quilt” top is done,

Time to relax,

take a look,

and,

ponder on how

I should quilt it.

And when…;-)))

Busy – or, Scrappy go Happy!

 

 October started with beautiful Autumn days

2012_0929photosblog0041

One of the pumpkins found its way to my kitchen,

the result:

tasty Pumpkin breads!

Some time ago I started cutting fabric strips for the “No Strings attached Challenge”  Stephanie had in her blog.

Unfortunately I could not go on with the projects I had in mind.

Time passed,

ahem…

years passed

A box full of scraps…

A little voice said, “give it a second chance”…

Block after block, it started to take shape.

More strips, please.

A delightful feeling when I got it done!

Wonky half Log Cabins,

or,

Scrappy go Happy!

And because I still had strips

and so many scraps…

I thought,

why not another scrappy quilt? These are the ones I love most.

Half square triangle’s production in progress:

A sneak peek,

2012_0809photosblog0003

Just a few rows left to get the top done!

Believe it or not….

the pile of scraps

did not really diminish…

I can’t wait to start sewing this project ( and the other ones on my list ;-)

Wishing you a lovely week,

with a heavy dose of quilting!

PS. I’ll count the two first two quilts as my PIP 2012 – is that ok, Stephanie?
