Books and blocks
I think I could flip through a new book or magazine every day, I never get tired of it. It is like buying fabric, you never have enough!
The books DH gave me are full of inspiration, here are some pics:
Many fresh ideas for the Summer, with polka dots, birds, hearts, roses and bags:
For a very fine breakfast!
A romantic “tea and cake” in the garden:
Piece O’ Cake Designs have beautiful ideas for appliqué:
This one is so lovely:
And this one with leaves, it is beautiful! I love their color and fabric combinations.
For hand sewing some pretty ideas with hexagons:
A tea cozy and a place mat – look at the little red tea pot!
Pretty bags and pouches:
And a quilt:
I hope you also feel inspired for new projects!
Now and then a little time spent in the sewing room, no idle hands! ;-))
I had so much fun making these blocks:
They are for a preemie quilt. I make them for donation, it is a little gesture to show the parents that other people care. The first time I delivered them at the hospital I met a young mother there, she had three babies, two boys and a girl. They were so tiny, so helpless, the tears came by just looking at them. The mother was surprised that a group of women thought and cared about them. Unfortunately, only the little baby girl survived. But they were thankful, later we saw a photo of the little baby girl, she was doing just fine. This is the wish with every quilt, may these babies survive and grow up healthy and have a normal life, may they play and laugh and be happy.
The first daffodil in our garden! Everything else is still dry, more green, please!
A new little bunny stitchery, just in time!
May you have a wonderful weekend, with a wonderful weather!
Wishing you a lovely, blessed Easter!
