1st of December

I thought it’s nice to start with cute little Angel in Christmas colours. Don’t you think I have done great job for a boy … and a furry-boy especially! Everyone here is now so busy that I had to take over the sewing and fortunately Hanna, my secretary helps to write the numbers.

Hi! Welcome to to the 1st part of my ‘Christmas – Seasonal’ Tutorials! … and it’s not even November yet! Today we shall have fun with little trees!

Embroidery Hoop Decor - tutorial

Catch your scraps and let’s start! Take a piece of fabric for the base. Take the inner piece of the embroidery hoop.  Draw a circle about 2.5″ – 3″ bigger that the hoop. Cut your fabric circle. I didn’t use those coocie molds but instead of the trees we can make some other shapes.

Then cut the same size circle from a thin fabric for the backing. For the backing you can use some other thin material, too. I used something which is like those disposable sheets. It’s thin and covers the wadding so the sewing is easier.

Now take a piece of wadding or fleece and draw a circle inside the the inner hoop. (The wadding is smaller so that it doesn’t go between the two hoops).

Fantasy Forest

Woodpecker was the one who got me in to this and the ‘Fantasy Forest’ brought the 1. prize home! I was very happy to get to know better Carrie from ‘Pink Chalk fabrics’ because she is so sweet and helpful. I made my first order and tried to keep it reasonable. Then of course I regreted because didn’t take some fabrics I liked and I asked her  if I could still add something to my first order. Carrie compined the shipping and now I just have to wait.

But the best thing is that I have something for you, too! Carrie gave me $20 gift certificate to share with you! So now one of you will be in same difficult position as I was – what…

‘FANTASY FOREST’ QUILT

Hello Dear Friends! I am happy to show you finally my version of the ‘Forest QAL’ – quilt that somehow chose it’s own way and became ‘Fantasy Forest’ …

‘Fantasy Forest’ by Teje Karjalainen

First I want to thank Julianna from ‘Jednoglec’ and Joanna from ‘Shape Moth’ ! Thank you so much for hosting this Quilt along and sharing these fantastic patterns!

Forest QAL

This story began in March when Forest QAL started with the first block of Woodpecker. If that hadn’t been the first block, I don’t think I had ever made this quilt. I liked that block so much that I had to try if I can make it. This was my first ever foundation piecing block and it became almost the last, too. It took all my patient and several days, but there it was the ‘thank’ at the end. I learned and got hooked!

This fantastic show takes place at ‘Lily Pad Quilting’ and it’s all about PETS ON QUILTS!!! And here we are having fun on our quilts … welcome every one to join us under the palm tree!

Pets on Quilts Show 2013

It’s a hot day, but we thought why not have our quilts in the shadow under the palm tree. If you visit us first time, I’ll tell you that we live in Greece in Crete and summer is hot here. Our sewist is from Finland but she has lived here long time and hb is from here. Summer is also very busy time, so I didn’t write so much lately but soon it’s autumn, my favourite season and then I shall write you often … I have always so much to tell and show!

We got these quilts in spring - because we can sleep on them…

The reason for this post is that I like you to meet Debbie, who bought my pattern and was so sweet to send me photos of the quilt she made.  She is very talented and I’m so happy she wanted to make this quilt. Debbie’s wonderful blog is ‘Angel’s Scraps Quilting’ and here is the beautiful quilt she made …

BUSY BEE, ANT AND ME

Hi! Bee is busy as me and some other creatures …

Where ever there is a flower, there is someone else. I try to take better photos and even my camera is just simple and normal, I can get nice shots if I just use time to try, wait, find a right place, light etc.

garden

I never use photo-shop (I don’t even have it) or anything else to fix my photos. But I take loooooots of photos and from them I find few which I really like. These ‘things’ are only some centimetres high and the purple under them is from the flowers where the bees are …

Week ago when the weather was changing many times, there were lots moving going on. I started to admire these tiny workers …

ant

They are so stubborn … if they have decided to use one way, you just can’t change their mind or…
