I never knew,
That without you,
My heart would ache so badly
Know that I will keep you close to me,
No matter where I go or where I'll be.
It's a year now since you left us,
but you're present in my days,
"I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)" - E.E. Cummings

The excitement about trying a new technique (the one I mentioned on my last post)
made me take a look at my scrap boxes.
What do you think I found?….
What a bird brain…
How could I forget my string blocks???… I first showed them here…
After deciding which pattern I liked most
I made more blocks,
I took a break….
made more blocks, and…
Other projects took place,
the box with the blocks found a nice corner in the sewing room.
Why did they not scream??…I sure would have heard!
I started sewing the blocks.
It’s going to be a square quilt,
I have three more blocks to sew.
Sometimes a new idea helps you to finish an old project!
Wishing you a lovely sewing time!

Again and again,
scrap quilts always
get my attention,
the colors, the fabrics,
I saw this one in Australian Homespun No.128,
A nice way of using remnants to “make” your own pieces of fabric and
then cut them into parallelograms:
Interesting, isn’t it?
Wishing you a lovely weekend!

The beauty of Fall is gone…
The days are getting colder, the sky is grey…
with some bright decoration, candles, tea, and
everything else that makes you smile
and feel happy,
we can welcome the most lovely time of the year,
I’m thankful for being able to finish a small wall hanging just in time for the first Advent.
As usual, life gets in the way and my plans fail, I guess it’s a matter of getting used to it as I grow older…
Time for some more tea….(after the photos!)
Hanging the stocks with care….
Enjoy this season and
all the joy
