Crochet Jacket

Vof vof dear friends! It’s me Nero here and today I show you how our “granny square jacket” is going on. Hope you are well and hope you love colours!

These are the sleeves. I think they look like a castle in Disney land!

These are the front pieces. I’m not sure yet how the collar will be but something simple.

And this is the back piece.

I had to think a lot how to make the sleeves. Finally I planned the colours so that they follow the colour theme on each side … I hope so. Those little ‘tree’ triangles will be under the arms. That was a hard job to decide how to make the sleeve shape. I didn’t want trumpet sleeves! I hope this will work out well.

This has been a slow project and I’m really happy to see that it will be finished soon!

Mornings are the best! It’s still a little bit cool and the light is beautiful! Have to smell who has passed my road.

If you like to read the earlier post and how I connect the squares, it’s HERE.

I help with Hanna as much as we can because Teje is mostly reading on sofa, her back is in pain and she can’t sit at the sewing machine. Oh boy we miss sewing and patchwork!

Anyway it’s really hot and we don’t have energy to do anything. In the afternoons we play a little bit and look the traffic on the road, but mostly just try to find a cool place to lie. Today seems to be very nice wind, even some clouds,so I hope the day won’t be terrible hot.

Thank you friends for stopping by!

Small patchwork and Winners!

Vof vof friends! It’s me Hanna here – great to see you! Today we shall tell you with Nero all the winners for our give away! And I shall show you our latest patchwork. It’s really fun.

Hanna

Here I am next to our design wall but looks like I’m not tall enough … you can see only part of the picture we have been sewing.

But hey, lets get to our serious job!

Nero

Nero and I wrote all the names on the papers, folded them and then threw them to our give away basket. Nero put his special scarf (even it didn’t stay for a long) and I found my glasses, notebook and pen …

Hanna

So we are ready to start the lottery to find 6 winners for our 6th blog anniversary celebration! Yeeee!

Hanna and Nero

I took my dear star quilt out on the balcony so we have nice, comfy place. Nelli is sleeping next to us and we pretend that she is the lottery inspector. I’m not sure if I shall show her because her chair is always so dirty from her hairs.

Hanna and Nero

But now Nero you can pick the first paper! And then I shall pick the secong and so we continue. Finally here are the results of our lottery:

give away winners 8-16

You can see all the names on the papers and I shall write to the winners soon. This time three of the winners have link to a blog: Doreen’s ‘Treadlemusic’ and ‘One Creative Family’ and Carol’s ‘Beads and Birds’.  Congratulations to the winners!!! and Thank you all for joining our give away!!!

Hanna and Nero

You know why we look so happy, right? Yes, of course we love to play this game but we got also good payment for this job. Many ‘nami namis’ (=Frolics) and Calcium bones with Duck!

I have been asked often about this star quilt. It is really nice and I like the fabrics from hb’s shirts. But unfortunately I didn’t find any pattern to give you a link. I got the diamond templates from a friend. I’m sure you can find the pattern from somewhere, perhaps from ‘Craftsy’. If someone knows, please tell us in the comments!  You can make this pattern also a little bit easier if you use triangles. Then you can sew them in rows and there won’t be y-seams.

Now I shall show you the small patchwork we have been doing. It’s a little bit different than usually because of the black, but I really like it …

Time to continue the patch work, because today we have been playing all the day. We had a special guest! I shall show you later, who she was!

Thank you so much for reading my post and for your awesome comments! I enjoyed so much reading your stories on the give away post! Lets keep chatting about quilting and other things!

HANNA … and Nero, Nelli and Teje
