finally a Wedding ring…

Hej!

Well, as we are getting closer to the end of the year it`s time to go thru all of the projects in progress… aka  UFO`S..
And I came a cross a project I begun in Summer I think and whilst it wasn`t working out there I laid it aside. Once in a while it was smiling at me, begging to be done and I was smiling back, reassuring it that the time will come..

Well, X-mas came and with that time of the year also the shortest days and the longest darkest nights, and suddenly I felt the urge to take it in my hands again 🙂

And O wonder… the X-mas spirit must have been sitting on it, or one of my Nissar (Elfs) in only 3 day`s I managed to finish it, so it can be quilted soon. And it went together so smoothly I only could wonder what had happened to it.

I´m Capricorn and I´m also known for putting my head down and working untill the goal is reached. So I also have to say thank you to Walter! He only interrupted me when I was supposed to eat something.. which I always seem to forget. Did I mention he`s my favorit cook 😉

So here come the pictures 🙂

finally… with the border!! Yeahhhh…
It`s 200cm x 200cm by now.
I`m just deciding about the Appliqué for the lower left corner, and the upper right corner… butterflies, birds and flowers…

3 days left and I´m nearly done!

I wish you all a blessed, healthy and a happy New Year!

Happy quilting!

Love Simone

46 Hearts

As I got to know I´m already international and on demand this blog is going to be in English from now on. I´m happy to oblige!

Hej!

46 Hearts… what`s that going to be? Well, Walter thinks it only can be Love Chaos, but no it`s block 3!
I was busy working on it and now I want to share it with you!
As always with this tiny little guys, it took a while to prepare everything.

Here are some pictures:

The small pieces on the right fabric… it took a while!

As I can`t work with thimbles ( and I tried really every brand) my fingers look like this after 8 h of stitching.

This little fellow is the treasure of my heart. It`s Thor our youngest pack member.
And like Samuel (which died in January, it`s almost a year now and we still miss him terribly) he likes to join me in my sewing room.

5 full days of work are completed!

Guess what.. block 4 is already prepared!

In the meantime I`ve also been working on two other competition Quilts. One smal one ( 40x40inch/1x1m) which is for our Guild Challenge and is supposed to be due in February! I´m nearly done quilting it.
And another big one like the Baltimore here. So much I give away… I was embroidering my first freestanding Lace for it 😉
It`s ready to be quilted now…and I´m just designing the quilting.
There`s more going on here but that`s for another time…

For now I say “ happy quilting!“

See you soon!

Love Simone
