Vof vof, vof dear friends! It’s me Hanna here today to tell you about our thoughts and plans for the new year 2017.
I thought to start with this colourful photo. This quilt is ‘Hanna’s Garden’ and it’s like me. I’m happy, I laugh and sing a lot (if there is no camera near). My wish for the new year is Happiness and Health for everyone!
I knew right away, what my word of the year should be: it’s FOCUS. I would love to have word FUN or STORY (like Pat) but I know I need to choose FOCUS. I have to start to focus better because if we have thousands of things in our minds it’s difficult to get something done. But I won’t forget FUN or STORY! We need to have fun in our lives! And I love stories! I love to read stories and I enjoy writing small stories. Every quilt is a story and if the quilt itself doesn’t have clear story at least it’s sure there is a story about the idea, inspiration, reason etc. Sometimes there maybe a story written on it …
About plans and goals … I’m not for goals but I do make plans all the time. And I like to set challenges. Last year my quilting challenge was curves. As the year went very strangely and wasn’t very progressive, I shall continue with cureves also this year. An other challenge I like to set to myself, is to be more improvising and creative.
In autumn Rachel challenged us with: ’30 Days of Quilt Design’! I really enjoyed making quilt plans and illustrating my designs! There are several I would like to make and hope to have time for that. My favourite design is ‘Dream Catcher’ and I have made small beginning on the design wall.
An other favourite is this one with curves. Except the curves, I want to make more foundation paper piecing. That is something I love and really miss. Hope to make patterns of my own drawings.
More curves … and improvising! And more colours! You know for me it’s all about colours!
But it’s not all about curves. I really love repeating patterns. Triangles are my favourites and with those you can make what ever you imagine! Stars are always Stars! And wouldn’t they be gorgeus on a dark night sky!
I’m just finishing one quilt and shall show it soon. After that the ‘main’ quilt project will be the ‘Grand Canal’ with diamonds. That is really enjoyable project!
There has been something in my mind for a long time and I hope to do make that/them/those this year.
My etsy shop is waiting for more stuff … selves are very empty after the Christmas. Lots of photographing for the shops is waiting, too.
Soon we shall have puppy friends visiting us and you can guess that we shall have fun and play a lot! If some one can catch us with the camera, I shall show you photos!
Thank you for visiting and thank you for your sweet comments! I hope you join me and Nero also the next year! We all wish you sparkling, super special new year 2017!!!
Hugs and Kisses!
HANNA, NERO, NELLI & TEJE
