Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Hello and welcome to Nero’s Post and Patch! You just landed to Chania in Greece – beautiful and famous holiday destination! I do my best to send you a lot of sunshine and inspiration picked from Cretan colours!

I’m so happy to join once again ‘Blogger’s Quilt Festival’, organized by Amy from ‘Amy’s Creative Side’. I want to send thousands of thanks to Amy for the huge work she does, when organizing this fantastic event! This is really important to all quilters and even more to us who live far away from our quilter friends.

I think many of us have this quilt festival on the ‘back of our mind’ through the whole year, wondering now and then what to share in the next festival. Sometimes I have had few quilts ready and had to decide which one to enter, but this time I was stitching until the last minute to finish my quilt in time.

Vof vof friends! Autumn is here and I feel so good! I like to play all the time and … to eat goodies!

Last week we were just the girls and me and most of the days we were sewing. This Project didn’t start easily but when it found the way it was easy and fun.

Hex N More quilt top

These Fabrics are the ‘Fancy Free’ by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake Designs and I chose them with my gift card from ‘Fat Quarter Shop’. Pattern became as I worked. For the first time I used Julie’s fantastic ruler ‘Hex N More’ – bought from ‘Fat Quarter Shop’.

This was the last minute to take photos out, because after that the weather changed. Now we have had two days clouds, strong wind and even some rain. First few drops after about 6 months we had just the day these fabrics arrived. I were so happy for the fabrics and the rain…

Hello Dear Friends! I hope you are fine and enjoy the summer! We have hot weather and me and my new flower bag tried to stay in the shadow  …

Bag and Sea Glass Pendant

This bag has a great summer feeling. I almost said also country feeling but why not also city feeling … in cities there are also lots of lovely places filled with sweet flowers. Last days we have been working mostly with the bracelets and sea glass pendants. Sea Glass is very Special and exciting material. Every piece is unique and sometimes if you are very lucky you can find ‘once in a lifetime’ piece …

Pink Sea Glass

Pink sea glass is really rare colour. If you think what kind of glass items there is made from glass in pink colour, you understand that it’s almost a miracle to find a piece like this … smoothened by salty sea water, sand and stones and then washed…

Hi! I’m back at home – while I unpack my fabrics I’ll show you more photos from my trip to Finland …


In the book store I saw lots of lovely books and other things with Moomins – and book about Tove Jansson: mother of Moomins!


Best ever notebooks!

book store

In the Super Market I saw Moomins marmelade-candies …

Moomins candies

In many Shops mugs, bowls and many other dishes I desired to buy but couldn’t get more weight to my bags. Could you guess how many bags and suitcases I had when I returned?

Moomins mug

This mug is the most beautiful Moomin mug I have seen! This mug is Special, because it’s made for Tove’s 100 anniversary and 2 e from each mug goes to Unicef’s school- and education- projects.


I have to say that I love Finnish dishes and I’m proud of Finnish design. Simple and delicate with fine colours …


Should have taken…

Hanna’s Story

Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Vof vof! I’m Hanna and today I shall tell you my story.


I don’t remember much about the first weeks of my life and sometimes it’s better we forget unpleasant things and remember the ‘rosy’ ones. But I never forget that one dark night when I was taken to a car and then thrown to a strange and scary place outside … place that didn’t have any familiar smell of my mom or my sisters and brothers. I was so affraid and tried to hide in the dark corner. Then someone came to smell me … he was really big but seemded to be friendly.


That big boy was Nero, I learnt later. He saved me and was my Hero from that evening! He didn’t leave from my side even someone was calling him. He looked happy and I felt that he likes me. Then someone else came to see where Nero is … she…

Hi Dear Friends! I have tried to find title for this post … Greek colours … colours from Greece … mix of things I see every day …

Greek Church

I pass this church very often and admire the blue roof on the blue sky background. If I didn’t plan quilts, blog posts, crochet patterns etc. all the time, I would have remembered to stop for photos long time ago …

Greek Church

When I drive or walk around my eyes pick colours … very often blue …

Morning over the city … so many different blues …

Sunny Greek view

She is waiting for her breakfast …

Blue Door and Cat

Blue street signs, deep shadows and strong light …


Forgotten blue boat … or perhaps just waiting for summer …

blue boat

Two days I didn’t see this girl and I missed her … she is always there … I was so happy to meet her today.

Greek Dog

Now when she has used to see me pass often, she looks happy to…

Hello Friends! February is here … when January passed?! Absolutely good time for new begins and looks! I was at the hairdresser and when she had been cutting for a while other hairdresser passed: “great, you make a big change’! Mine: “if we do something, we do it well”! I’m very much like that. But first about the border and binding …

Today with rain and poor light inside I settled few possibilities for the narrow border and binding. I have put numbers under the photos, so if you like you can vote for your favourite.

Few explinations: I want to use something from my stash and not to make a frame to pop out but a border to gather the the blocks and colours and to make the edge secure.

I have also one beautiful brown batik (like someone suggested so well) and I tried that – it would be beautiful but I want to…
