Hello my Dear Friends!!! Welcome to share my sunny Sunday!!!
I have been waiting to show you this! New cushion that I named ‘Fire Tail’!
Yesterday and today it is here – the spring!!! We have been cutting the grass in the garden. After the winter there is so much green to cut and collect.
I wish I could send you that stunning smell of fresh cutted crash we have now all around the house! From my sewing room I see this …
… Foxy is going some where … perhaps to the vegetable garden … it’s so lovely and pieceful view … so difficult to understand that some other parts of the world are suffering after that terrible earthquake in Japan! My thoughts are with the people in Japan and other places where this eartquake made damages and lives were lost! It’s difficult to find words …
Idea for this pillow came quite spontaneously. I wanted to make something creative …
I begun to make the center for a pillow and thought why not to use that shape of the dog I like …
For the ear and tail, I needed to use other method than in ‘Nero’s Garden’ quilt because this needs to be more strong. I haven’t made much applique so this was really ‘my own’ try and I don’t know if there is easier way – I hope so!
I made the stitching around the dog before sewing the ear and the tail.
I made mistake … stupid mistake and needed time to frog and re-sew …
I’m lucky to have a lots of pation … but when I learn to concentrate ? never, I guess … I’m thinking too many things at the same time and the result is here. I show this because often we feel that every one else is doing perfect work and no mistakes and only we have difficulties. The truth is – I think – that every one makes mistakes and often needs to do and try again to get the wanted result.
I’m really happy how this ‘Fire Tail’ pillow came up. We should remember and learn to be proud of our works and not feeling too modest about the crafts we make with love and lots of effort! Julia made me think and remember some important matters … I shall be creative with her! On my sidelist you find the bright blue button: “Being Creative” with Julia Crossland! Go to see and I’ll tell you also more about that in my next posts.
With this pillow I shall join again the Blogger’s Pillow Party! It’s so much fun to see wonderful pillows and new creations! The button is always on my sidelist.
Hmmmm … Flickr … again new challenge … I have put some photos now there in Flickr … but I’m wondering … do you add your photos first to Flickr and from there to your blog? Or how you make that when someone clicks a photo in your block, it opens the Flickr?!
Few days ago I went for shopping … threads, zippers, needles … and with lots of chearching I found few pieces of fabric … I need something for ‘Nero’s Garden’ quilt … that was difficult … but I shall be creative!
I have now baking going on in the kitchen so I have to go … perhaps I have next time something sweet!
Thank you so much for all those lovely messages you wrote to me about my jacket!!! I’m really touched because you liked it so much!!! Nero sends you hugs and thanks for all your wishes to him!!! I hope you have a wonderful week with lots of warm sunshine!!!
Ps. This is my 97 th post …
