A running nose…
Had to go to the doctor….
Sick of being sick….
But I am recovering,
and I’ll catch up
as soon as I can.
Three more Feather blocks are on my table,
I want to make as many blocks as possible using the same fabrics,
that means, I have to spare a little.
For some blocks I’m going to use only one fabric for one side of the feather,
I hope it will work fine.
I can now tick off one item of my endless “Wish-to-do list” ,
it’s this lovely pouch from Debbie’s Triple-Zip Challenge :
It’s a good one for little things,
her tutorial is easy to follow.
Maybe I could make another one using more of this fabric
that has nice sayings:
“make life simple” ,
“make life creative” ,
“make life relaxing”
Wishing each of you
a lovely Valentine’s Day!
I’ve been working with strips again,
it’s fun, satisfying and creative.
I can use any any width, any color.
it goes fast, just sit and sew.
The creative part:
simply play with it, look for the different options,
go anywhere you want.
First option, a star:
Alternating the chevrons:
“Squares” on point:
And there are so many more options to play with!
I’m going to make more blocks….
as the whim takes me!
Suffice to say that
I got carried away…
I had to start another project that also uses strips!
I usually save tiny pieces,
but these ones here are going to the bin!
The pieces have to be cut diagonally, so, in my case,
using scraps, I had to sew the strips off-center:
Always check to keep the pieces consistent:
A little while after, the first sets:
Preparing the stems:
Finally, the first feather block,
I’m in love with it!
We celebrated another birthday at home,
I baked another cake ;-)
“I feed my soul…
by the stitches I sew”
I feed my hips
by “cake” bits!
Have a lovely and creative week!
PS. The feather block is from a pattern from Anna Maria Horner “Feather Bed Quilt”.
