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 🙂
You do remember.. don`t you?
The Wedding Rings take shape…
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!
Today Walter and I got a lovely surprise. We both got a box with Godis.( Sweets)
but what a difference 🙂
What Chocolate is for Walter are quilting threads for Simone 🙂
well… the good thing with my Godis is, you wont become fat and you wont get holes in your teeth! 😉
Have a good day!
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!
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 46 Hearts cut out from the vilene/ vlieseline
1″ hearts by the way!
The small pieces on the right fabric… it took a while!
see the hearts?.. they are the leaves and flower leaves
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.
already with the Embroidery done!
A close up… so you can see the hearts
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!
