Hi! Missed you and hope you are fine! When there just isn’t any time for sewing but still you want to sew something or at least to have a project to think and plan … what to do …
I was desperately thinking where to focus my thoughts … hexagons … not inspired now … diamonds …. yes, those I wanted to try for a long time!
As you can guess there has to be colours but this time a little bit less. I try to stick in solids and not to add orange or red, perhaps not even green … sort of cooler colours. And mostly solids … perhaps they give me the calmness I’m missing at the moment.
For the beginning I shall use only one print, my favourite circles on grey from Kaffe Fassett. That and the purple/pink may be sort of background fabrics. This purple/pink is a pillow case and one of my favourite colours! It reminds me of Finnish ‘whipped’ berry porrige = vispipuuro! And lots of delicious photos of vispipuuro/marjapuuro!
I could cut the diamonds quickly with ruler and cutter but I prefer to stay in the living room with Nero and Hanna (and air condition) and cut them one by one with scissors … one by day … or two …
Diamonds are (for my opinion) quicker to baste than hexagons and I shall enjoy this project very much! Hmmm, what this will be at the end … no idea … if it ever ends! That’s also fun that you can make these as much or less you like and think later what to do with them.
I made few simple baracelets the other day. Ended up using only turquoise and blue but fortunately realized to take a photo when there were still more colours in the bowl.
I hope you enjoy the summer … spend lovely time on the beach … if you wish! I prefer to sweat inside when ever it’s possible.
Best wishes from very busy and hot summer island Crete!
