It is August!
And I am back to blogging! ;o)))
Happy dance ! The summer stash quilt is done!!
I still don't have a name for the quilt, but I'm working on it!
Here are the pictures, luckily outside, the sun is shining, it is summer!
More sun light and the quilting shows up:
And here is the back:
The past two weeks were very nice, a lot of sightseeing, visiting, walking, going to the movies (Mamma mia was great!) and the weather was fine.
I really had time to relax and slow down.
Now I have started to plan some new projects and how I can finish the ones that are in the second stage of "production"(!), which means piecing or sewing it together. I have signed in for two swaps and for one of them I know what I want to sew, but I guess I need to buy some fabric. Isn't it nice to have an excuse to visit a quilt shop? :o)))
Although these past days were somewhat hot, the hydrangeas seem not to like it either.
And I also read a LOT!!!
This book has three of Jennifer Chiaverini's stories.
The first ones were so nice, I just could not stop reading, "The runaway Quilt" and "The Quilter's Legacy". The third, "The Master Quilter" I've just started.
Before I had to finish reading these two books, "The Novice - The black Magician trilogy Book two" and "The High Lord - The black Magician Trilogy book three". The story reminds me a little bit of Harry Potter's, but the last book was then much more interesting.
Quite a while ago I bought this Snoopy fabric, I knew DS2 would like it, he loves Soopys and the Peanuts.
But it had to be a pattern in which a lot of the sweet litlle one could be seen.
He helped me and we chose a pattern with stars.
I started to cut the pieces:
Hexagons and triangles:
Three rolls so far, and DS2 likes it!
Snoopy is a star!
Now I want to take some time to read what I've missed by the other bloggers, I guess I need quite some hours!
My sewing machine needs some more attention from me (LOL), so I hope to make it happy during the weekend, I want to finish some little gifts and send them next week!
Have a lovely and creative weekend!
See you soon!
