I’m so happy to see you again after the short break we had here in ‘Nero’s Post and Patch’! We had sort of ‘holidays’ and now we are slowly getting back to our normal rutins … if there are some.
Our dear friend from Finland was here and all we girls spent some relaxing days in ‘Maherida’. There it is so pieceful – most of the time you can hear only the sound of the sea!
The weather was just perfect – not too hot, not too cold – bright sun – blue sky and sea!
Two weeks ago, just before our holidays, we had one really hot Sunday. It was a good day for sewing and I took my hexagon blocks and begun the puzzle for the ‘sewing machine cover’.
I gathered the blocks, some left over scraps and other patches. Then I cut the white fabric to the right size to be the base for the cover and begun to ‘fill’ it …
I took some dark blue also to have something stronger with all those bright colours and white.
I didn’t have a plan in the beginning – just tried the patches with different ways to find how I like them. Most difficult part was the center. There is going to bee also a hole for the handle.
For the moment the pieces look like this. I though the stitching would be done till now, but more likely tomorrow. And of course I had to take these to the sun …
When I was sewing, all the family was inside enjoying the cool air of the air-condition. My dear Hanna had find the most comfortable place to sleep …
Last two weeks went so quickly even we were relaxing and having lazy time. Still there happened almost too much. We had lots of laugh but also tears – lots of fun but also worries. I shall tell you more in next posts – for example about this BABY!
I hope you are having a great time, wonderful weather and you are enjoying the summer and holidays!!!
We have had lots of ‘brakes’ with the internet, but still I have read most of your posts. So great to see what you are doing during the summer! Still there are problems with the comments as you know. Some blogs are like before, but somewhere it just doesn’t except any id. Let’s hope that will be fixed soon and we can change again our thoughts.
Now I shall be on my way to visit you! By any chance some cake with the coffee?
Hanna definitely has the right idea in this heat! I could curl up on my bed right now and have a snooze. Instead I’m sat in front of a large fan!
That is going to be a very fine sewing machine cover – I need one of those two, but it’s a long way down my list of things to make (too many birthdays coming up) and I have a house full of visitors, so little time to sew now until August. Until then I must do lots of cooking and cleaning (yawn!) and may be read the internet and some craft books for inspiration!
What a great place the Internet is! It was great to see the rocky coast line and a country side so different from our palms, mangroves and bamboo. Hope you get that coffee and cake Teje!
Good to see you Teje and I am glad that you had a good holiday. Your patchwork is looking great. I am intrigued about that sweet kitten..do tell more.
It is very hot here at the moment too. Enjoy the sunshine.
Hey! Great to see you Teje! Looks like you had a lovely time with your friend. Your new sewing machine cover is going to be just beautiful. I love the fabric colours. Oh that sweet little kitty! I wonder what story there is to tell? There is always tea and cake on offer for you Teje and Bonios for your furry friends. Rosx
Welcome back from your relaxing break. I love how you decide what you need and then figure out how to make it…no pattern needed. I like to do that, too. Oh, and the teeny tiny kitten….in a house full of doggies???? Cats are brave!
Welcome back. Glad you had a nice break, but sorry to read about the tears and worries. We had too much of both around here the last two weeks ourselves. Hopefully they are behind you, as they are for us. We can’t wait to hear more about the baby kitty. Your sewing is beautiful, as always.
Hi Teje..I can see you’re all having a lovely summer with plenty of sunshine..I hope you’ve plenty of guests in those beautiful rooms of yours! I love the pictures you’re posting of your sewing machine cover and the animals..I hope you have the chance to finish it soon.
I have to admit the hexies and your sewing machine cover–which is beautiful, by the way–had to compete with that compelling scene of a beach on your blog. I feel like I’ve been on vacation, just reading this. I like your choice of value on that project–it will be interesting to see it come together!
Welcome back from your blog break, Teje! It’s good that you had a nice relaxing time. Your new patchwork project is looking wonderful – you are so clever the way you create things and I look forward to seeing the finished cover. And what a cute little kitten you have there!! Have a happy week.
Hey Teje, great to have you back. It’s good to hear you and your friend had a great time in the sun.
I love your patchwork. You have such a great eye for colour and shape. But I’m curious about how you are going to fit in a space for the handle of your machine.
WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISIT!
