Hello friends! Happy new month! 1st of March, who could believe, and it’s a showtime! How are we going on with our ‘Quilty 365’ projects?
I have made 60 little trees, one for each day of January and February. I chose to add four ’empty’ blocks so that I could make this square.
Weather was today once again amazing, so warm that I changed to flip flops (for the first time this early) when cleaning in the garden. Yesterday we had terrible strong, warm south wind and it dropped so much leaves all around. I took the ‘Fabric Forest’ on the outside design wall. Soon the wooden fence will be green, covered with vine leaves.
Coffee outside, with Hanna, Nero and Finnish magazine. And look what there was on the first page!
OMG, those tiles are the best! I would love to have a kitchen wall or a table covered with these!
I’m really happy to receive every month the Finnish ‘Koti ja Keittio’ (Home and Kitchen) magazin. It’s full of beautiful houses, decorations, ideas, photos are really good and it gives to me inspiration for home and sewing.
My special table cloth is painted and made by dear friend. And now few process shoots …
Weather is turning and now it’s cloudy, very high humidity and the air is full of African dust. It will rain and after the rain everything outside is muddy dirty. I hope my car is in the garace when it’s raining dust! But in the lunch time today, Hanna still missed her sun glasses!
You know that this ‘Quilty 365’ project is about making one block with and applique circle (or what you choose) every day for one year. Because I shall have a problem with time, I let myself to make my own schedule. My plan was to make new theme for every three months. The truth is that 60 trees is big enough forest for me. And the other truth is that I don’t have enough time. So my plan B is that I make blocks two months and then third month is for finishing the project and preparing the new one. I have so many ideas for following months that who knows if I still start new theme in few days … other wise it will start in April.
One other thing is that I hope to sew clothes this month. I’m always too late and don’t have time to make any summer clothes. This time the weather has helped me to think this early enough. So I have already ideas for summer blouses and perhaps even skirts (when I was wearing skirt last time???)
I’m linking for the ‘Quilty 365’ at ‘Quiltyfolk’ and at weekly linky parties:
Fabric Tuesday, Sew Cute Tuesday, Linky Tuesday, Let’s be Social, Needle and Thread Thursday, Fabric frenzy Friday!, Whoomp There It Is!, Oh Scrap
So now I don’t have any idea what I shall do next. I have so many and so different ideas in my mind … today I even took out some yarns because I really miss knitting … I think I start with those … or should I sew …
Thank you friends for reading my blog! Thank you for writing beautiful, fun and supporting comments! Thank you for your replies by email as I’m no-reply ‘wordpresser’!
