Hello! I have missed you my friends but my days are really busy now … still some weeks and then it starts to turn to autumn. I have so many ideas in my mind. I have found some time to visit your blogs and have seen so many beautiful quilts and other lovely ideas! I would like to tell and show many things! But today I changed my plans and after thinking better I’ll show you the small quilt ‘Baby Squares’!
This quilt is going to be a present from my friend to a baby girl. I made this a little bit more simple that ‘Baby Stars’ to be able to finish it befaure autumn. Colours are this time more read and orange with some light pastels and the binding bright orange.
I thought that you have seen so often my quilts with the same backround at home garden, so one day I took this quilt with me to ‘Maherida’.
It is so beautiful place among the olive trees and the sea view. There must have been lots of wine-growing, too, because they still grow from every where.
You see the bright green on the left side?
I like so much these old wooden gates! Unfortunately we had to take them away and make a new gate. It wasn’t possible to fix them to work. But the new wooden green gate looks also very good and goes well with the garden. I managed to save these old ones for decoration!
Today except this baby quilt, I have Nelli with me! All our friends have been loosing their fur and I brush and brush and brush … every evening!
One day I thought I need to brush Nelli, too. Our vet told once that it’s good to brush cats, too. Other wise they get too much hairs and hair balls to their stomach and may have problems. For my surprise, Nelli really enjoyes brushing!
Very quickly I had all this hair in my hand and thought to show it to Nelli …
… she thought to taste it … then I made felted ball with her hairs …
It’s very easy to make, because at least Nelli’s hairs felt so easily in a warm hand.
… and again she tasted … I guess it could be an instinct when she smells her hairs, she feels they need to be ‘cleaned’. But maybe she couldn’t understand why that ball smells her because she started to clean her leg …
If you like to see where I have used few felted balls made from Nelli’s hairs, click HERE!
