A finish and a WIP

 

That’s how it began,

DSCF9136

and now it’s finished!

This block/pattern has many versions, I like this one from Bernadette Mayr, to me they look like they’re dancing and I like the movement.

Working on a new mini quilt,

I think I got hooked,

it’s fun and fast to make – well, sometimes not so fast,

but fun for sure!

 

Have a lovely and

creative weekend!

International Woman’s Day

 

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,

the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”


 
Audrey Hepburn

A very practical cosmetic clutch

with magnetic snaps instead of zipper. The pattern is from “ByAnnie”.

But I’m not using it for cosmetic!

Memories

 

 

There are days I miss you

most of all…

It was your time to go,

but the pain that I have lost you

cannot be eased…

I hear your voice, your laughter

Your memories,

dear big sis,

will live in my heart

forever

This one or that one?

 

I remeber when

I was a kid

that sometimes…

my eyes were bigger than my stomach….

Somehow,

the same applies to these UFOs.

Because these blocks were bigger

(and some rows were finished…)

than these ones…..

I finally finished sewing them first!

Now it’s all set for quilting.

The recipient already saw it.

His smile made my day.

This kind of reward makes quilters happy!

No sewing weather…

 

It’s been terribly hot, sticky, and all.

Some people love it, I belong to those who does not really enjoy it….(Unless I were at the beach….)

A bit cooler would be just fine, I would sleep better, my brain would work better….

Quilting in the morning, while it was not so hot,

I got both minis finished,

happy!

Finally, the binding,

I hear some UFOs calling me,

we’ll have a little talk.
