EPP and a gift

Last day of April,

a good month,

I got some projects finished,

tried new patterns,

started new things,

nice, I’d say!

The trash-pouch is practical,

I’m using it to keep a new English Paper Piecing project,

I got it from crazymomquilts,

it’s fun and easy to make, probably as a cushion for a friend who loves the bright rainbow colors – actually, I have more than one friend who loves these colors!

This is a gift for a special friend,

the pattern describes our paths in this life,

vacillating, not consistant, floating,

but always forward,

one step after the other,

going ahead.

We both have been through many

ups and downs.

The back in green, her favorite color.

Why is she especial?

Do you have a friend that reminds you

you’re not alone in the journey?

Makes you laugh, catches you when you’re

about to fall, and it doesn’t matter if the two of you don’t talk

for a while when things get busy,

when you get together, it’s like you talked

to each other yesterday.

“Friends are medicine for a wounded heart,

and vitamins for a hopeful soul”.

I’m grateful to have her as a friend.

 

This is a top I finished some time ago…

Finally quilted!

Playing and learning

 

Some rest of solid fabrics

randomly chosen to try

a new pattern (to me, anyways!),

DSCF9222

cutting, trimming,

DSCF9225

sewing the pieces together,

and learning a different pattern.

DSCF9226

Whether it’s an idea for a new quilt (in other colors),

I don’t know….

But I’m glad I gave it a try,  for this one

I had to make the templates myself, I cut it out of plastic,

it worked well.

And it happened because I wanted to take

a little break from this project,

a tray-pouch, by Aneela Hoey

Thread,  needle, and thimble,

just an hour (?…) away

from being finished!

 

Hope you had a peaceful Easter.

Have a lovely and creative week!

Mini quilts

 

They may be called “mini”, but it takes times

to make them….

In this case,

the challenge

was whether the colors would work good together.

One half done,

onto the next half!

I do like how the butterfly turned out,

DSCF9209

you can buy the pattern from Kristy, she has great patterns, here.

 

Then I found these tiny,

pretty butterflies,

Cricket, Gidget, and Pepper,

DSCF9201

they are from Lillyella, her work is beautiful.

I put two of them together,

DSCF9210

have to think of something else for the last one.

Some preemie quilt tops,

bunnies,

DSCF9215

broommm, broommm,

DSCF9217

and a fairy tale,

DSCF9219

 

Easter is just around the corner,

…but no need to hide the easter eggs!

Have a lovely and creative time,
