Hi! Sunday afternoon … new week beginning again?! I have learnt now that when I’m really busy it’s better to do something that doesn’t need too much concentration …
When I saw these turquoise collars, I knew that now my puppies need new collars! I was again visiting our vet, because Nero was too interested about Foxy?! So little Foxy got injection to calm Nero’s hormones?! Every one (I think) loves turquoise so I thought this time every one gets the same colour. Other wise Nero’s would be again black and Hanna’s dark red.
I have tried to make plans and think new ideas for my shop and autumn-winter season. But I don’t have time to try if my ideas work, so I can’t continue those ideas. Better to do something else just to rest and leave my mind to relax. And what could be better way than playing with some happy colours …
Always I wanted to make something with tiny, little patches …
… couldn’t stop here …
… it took 3 late evenings …
… to finish the top and now it’s ready for quilting!
Just a short while ago someone was asking about these waves in photos. I’m so sorry but can’t remember and find who it was. I left a comment and said that it happens to me also sometimes with solid fabrics, and here it is now. Hmmm, it doesn’t show in published photo?! Can we see it here …
A mystery over a mystery! I guess it has something to do with light and how the fabric has been woven.
Patchworks look often so interesting also from the back side! And when the sun shines through them …
Have to say that colours make me happy! And guess what … I shall see these little colour squares every day, beacause it’s going to be a mini wall quilt, placed next to my computer! I confess that I have already quilted some lines … I just couldn’t help myself … yesterday evening after finishing works I gathered my quilt guild (?!) and stitched some lines by hand. That was so enjoyable and looks beautiful!
I know you like to hear more about the quilt guild? There is none here and I was really happy to visit my blog friend Dianne today! She writes wonderful blog ‘QUILTOVA’! She makes beautiful quilts and also she was missing a quilt guild – so as a clever girl – she made her own guild!!! So why not me, too? I gathered my quilting assistants (Nero, Hanna and Foxy) and we had some special quilting guild – quality time all together!!! After many days it was great to sit outside in the late evening! Dogs were lying next to me, listening sounds of summer from the neigbourhood and I was quilting!
Funny thing is that till now I didn’t have time for Pinterest but now I have and you can guess if I’m hooked! I have put the button on my sidelist if you like to see my pin boards … but there is not much yet.
Thank you for stopping by and thousands of thanks for your unique messages! I wish you a great week and wonderful summer days!
Pretty, pretty post as always! Love those gorgeous turquoise collars. They will look so smart! Oscar says he thinks he should have one too!.Love the tiny squares too. Such lovely bright colours all together. It looks wonderful. Have a great week! Ros
Thank you Renee for your lovely comment! I guess Greece has something to do with my colours. I didn’t use so strong colours earlier and now I enjoy and need them! I would love to hear what island was your home! x Teje
Turquoise collars for everybody so there should be no arguing amongst the puppies cuz they will all look lovely together. Is that a slip of that pretty dress material I see peeking out of the wall hanging? Very pretty!
Thank you! You saw right, there is also patches from the ‘dress’ fabric which never bacame a dress. I still need to put a bell to Foxy’s collar. She doesn’t hear so we can’t call her and we need to know where she is wandering! x Teje
I have the same quilt guild here, just the three of us and we all agree on what we’re making. I love pinterest, it’s very addicting. I pinned one of the quilts from you’re shop, I loved it and thought it might send you some business. If you don’t want it pinned let me know.
Thank you Dana! Your quilt guild sounds fun! I just started at pinterest because I thought I don’t have time for that. But now I see it’s great place to have pin board for example quilts that I would like to make. And it brings also readers to my blog. I’m happy if you liked my quilt enough to pin it! Thanks again! x Teje
They are such lovely sunny colours you have used Teje, I have not been able to get into Pininterest…I think I would find I had even more to distract me! Your dogs will look so smart in their matching collars. Have a great week,
Thank you Jane! Dogs looks a little bit funny with same colour collars! But it’s nice change after black. I thought also that I don’t even start pinterest because it will take too much time, but I think it can be good, too. It may be good plays to pin things I like to remember and it brings visiters, too. Even I hadn’t any boards yet, I got visitors who saw some of my photos pinned by someone else. Lovely week to you! When the Olympics are beginning?! x Teje
Thank you Terri! In fact here are patches from almost all my ‘design’ fabrics and they are not left overs, because I haven’t used many of them yet! I felt a little bit sorry to cut small pieces from the corners, but then I thought I have bought them to use and just enjoyed! x Teje
Gorgeous colours in your little patchwork squares, Teje! I love the pets’ turquoise collars too, so pretty! Wishing you a happy week and hope you can find time for a little bit of sewing with your quilting guild!
Thank you Helen! I enjoy these little colourful patches and dogs look fun with the same colour collars! I think that we always find some time for something we really love to do, even late in the evening. I still need to brush the dogs but then I can stitch for a while! Happy week to you! x Teje
