Hello dear friends! Hanna said last time that I have been playing with butterflies … true, but I have done some work, too …
The top is finished for the baby quilt, custom order from a friend! This time it’s for a girl. I have finished this a while ago, but didn’t feel comfortable to even think about quilting it. Try to imagine to sit in sauna and having a quilt on your lap – not nice idea. But some how now I feel that I want to finish this quilt and in the evening I shall baste it and then I shall prepare a table for quilting not to have it over me.
I really like clear, clean white with colours! White makes them more colourful and so beautiful. I have been thinking a lot about colours and I’ll share my thoughts one day. Especially after making the ‘Patience’ wall hanging and watching it every day, I realized how much there is happening with the colours, how to use them, how to look them etc.
I hang my laundry to olive trees and they are now full full little olives! This is going to be good year and we shall havea lot of oil from our 11 trees!
Even it is terrible hot till late in the evening, I try to sit for a while outside with Nero and the girls. They are so bored being all the time inside. They sit or sniff around and I stitch something … perhaps with a glass of wine …
First time I bought this wine just because of the cute bottle. But I like the wine, too, so I shall have a collection of flower vases …
There are not many flowers in my garden this time of the summer, so I tide few ribbons for colour and cut a brunch from olive tree. But colour and flowers on fabrics I do have – look my new fabrics! I buy really seldom fabrics but speaking with Cindy at ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’ online shop, made me click these beauties! I was so happy to see that Kona solid bundle and I love those flowers, circles, stripes and rainbow colours! Cindy writes also lovely blog ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’!
Auch, again the half of my post is missing … how I catch my thoughts again …
Nero has a new blog friend, it’s Archie, the sweetest Labrador puppy! Nero is so happy to follow Archies adventures in his blog ‘The Chronicles of Archie’! As I’m happy to follow his mom’s Avis, quilting adventures at ‘Oh Sew Tempting’!
Have you ever thought about making a white quilt? When I look the back of this quilt top, I think it would make an interesting quilt. Lots of white with squares from seams and just few spots colour.
Hanna was right when she told you last time that I have been playing with butterflies. I had to do something to get my mind away from counting clean towels and sheets and this project really worked! I have had butterfly dreams!
Hmmm, what else …. I like to send you for a visit to Terri! Terri is quilting, sewing, painting and so much more and she writes wonderful blog ‘Terri’s Notebook’! Now she has made some really beautiful and practical fabric storage things. She has also great links, tutorials and patterns! Terri is my first blog friend, before I had even began my blog!
And for fun … I was so happy I looked this video! It’s amazing, fun, surprising!!! Do you like dominos? Go then, it’s HERE!!! ‘Live a Colorful Life’ blog is sharing this great video: ‘How to share Coca Cola’!
