Hello! I am happy to send you today sunny wishes after many cloudy and rainy days! We had great time outside with the dogs and I was also cleaning – that is much more easier with a good weather. Nero and Hanna were having a nap in the sunshine!
My first craft this year has a summer theme. I don’t miss summer yet and I really like the Greek winter. I think we should always enjoy the season we have – after the cold winter, summer feels much better than if we had all the time summer with too much sun and hot!
After the wonderful Christmas and New Year time, I’m happy to be back in regular days and other crafts than Chistmas things. I have had some time this picture in my mind … or something with the beach, sea and sky. The rest comes during the process.
I thought that I could have finished this more quickly, but since the New Year eve Nero has been so worried in the evenings. He was terrified with the fireworks! Still yesterday he heard some noise from outside and wanted to hide under my arms! So these last evenings I have been sitting with Nero and knitting … my endless rainbow jacket … I don’t know when I shall finish it, because now I think to change the pattern!
It’s already evening and normally I write my posts earlier. But it’s Tuesday and I want to join my friends in‘FABRIC TUESDAY’! I have missed them during these holidays and it’s so wonderful to find their company again! You find all of us at ‘Quilt Story’ with Heather and Megan!
So, I have still a little bit work with this patchwork picture … binding and perhaps some stitching by hand …
Do you know Faith from ‘FRESH LEMONS’? She has a really beautiful blog and I love her works! She makes adorable quilts and she has great tutorials, new blocks and much more! Now she has a fantastic give away … interested to win fabric … book ? … visit her and perhaps you are one of the lucky winners!
Thank you for your lovely company today and your sweet comments! Hope to see you soon again!
Thank you Fiona for your lovely comment! I feel so bad for the dogs who are affraid about the fireworks and shooting! Our small Foxy used to be very scared but now I saw that because she can’t hear much, she didn’t mind at all the noise – something good for that! x Teje
Teje that is such a sweet scene you have created and so sunny! It’s been a horrible day here, gales and torrential rain so it is good to see some sunshine sent from Crete.I hope the fireworks have stopped now and poor Nero can settle again. Billy sends him a purr,
Thank you Jane! I’m happy I could send you some sunshine but we are waiting to have some storms and cold weather too. Today we didn’t hear any horrible noises and Nero was happy. We had lovely day playing outside!
Hugs to Billy! x Teje
I love your quilted beach picture, especially the boats, the stripy umbrellas and the big orange sun! The colours are wonderful and so cheerful to see. Have a happy first week of January, Teje.
Thank you for your sunny post! We are still having a lot of Fall-like weather, and it is just better to stay inside. Fleur has als had a terrible New Years Evening. She is still very anxious when it comes to noises and she won’t leave my side.
Hopefully Nero will get over it soon.
I love your new quilt! The way you have applied the fabrics is wonderful. You always amaze me: this time by the quite simple shapes you’ve used, but with an amazing effect.Wonderful!
Hi Dorien! Thank you for your sweet words! I’m sorry to hear that also Fleur is affraid of fireworks. I don’t think that Nero will get over that – perhaps it will be worse and worse, because even yesterday when there was some strong noise outside, again he stucked very worried next to me. Also he don’t go any where near to my hb’s workshop because there are some noises too. I guess it has been more difficult after the ear problems.
When I started this ‘beach’ I hadn’t anything in my mind and during the work I realized that there ‘should’ be some beach things!
Sunny wishes! x Teje
Thank you Ros! I don’t know why I had so much in my mind the beach and sea … first I didn’t even know that I shall add there so many things – they just came to my mind during the work! Sunny wishes from Teje & Nero
Your quilt is beautiful, so summery and bright! I had problems with Higgins and the fireworks on New Years night and ended up having him in bed with me under the covers so he couldn’t hear anything, but I think it would be a bit tricky for you to do that with Nero!
Best wishes for 2012,
Penny and Higgins x
Thank you Penny! I’m sorry to hear that also Higgins had unpleasant New Year. The truth is that lately Nero is sometimes short time on our bed, not too long because I think he feels hot. But in the evening when he was so worried, I was sitting on the bed and knitting and he was stucked next to me! At night I spent a long time next to his bed trying to calm him to sleep. Nero wanted to be next to my hb and was scraching him with his feet and my hb was supposed to wake up very early! Oh it was a long night. Next time we will have this problem during the Eastern days. ‘Old times’ our Foxy was squared and shaking when she heard fireworks but now when she don’t hear almost at all, she is happy and don’t know about fireworks!
Sunny wishes and all the best to you and Higgins! x Teje & Nero
Hi Teje. I’m stopping by to let you know that I am sharing the “Collies Choice Award” with you. The rules for this award are pretty simple: “We have no rules other than the blog we/you give this award to be to us/you personally amongst the best being written.” Your blog fits this description for me! I am really happy to share your wonderful blog with my readers. My post about the award is on my blog today. 🙂
What lovely handiwork! But I’ll have to admit that the first thing that caught my eye was NERO. He has a striking resemblance to my long-haired shepherd Bridger. You’ll have to stop in at Cranberry Morning sometime and see him on my sidebar. I found you on ‘Threading My Way,’ where I also put a bag I made (knitted and felted). Cheers!
Oh my goodness! You are very talented! Your work is beautiful. I followed the link to your blog from 2browndawgs and I’m glad I did. Nero is gorgeous! We used to have a Belgian Shepard mix who was a big baby during fireworks and thunder storms. It makes you feel so helpless when they’re scared. Nice to me you and look forward to coming back and seeing your work and stories.
You have such a beautiful blog and live in a beautiful place! However, Nero, Hannah, Foxy and Nellie are absolutely beautiful!!! We have subscribed and will be reading daily! Keep up the great posts!
Your patchwork is delightful,such lovely work! Poor Bella hates the fireworks too,she barks and tries to hide away.Luckily we haven’t had many this New Year.
Lovely to find your new look blog!
Have a good week,big hugs to the dogs. 🙂
Thank you and I’m happy you like our winter look! I’m sorry to hear that Bella doesn’t like either the fireworks. It seems to be nightmere for most of the dogs. We didn’t have too much them this year but many days after still some strong bum bum and Nero is every day so nervous. Have a wonderful time and hugs to Bella, too! x Teje & Nero
