Sewing scraps with many thoughts

Hello my dear friends! One day I was thinking about the country I live. I thought about the sea and the sky, the sun and the lemon trees, the tomatoes, the cherries and the watermelons, I thought also about these black dressed elderly, I thought about the temperament of Greek people. I thought about a little boat on the beach which was painted with blue, red, white, yellow and black (unfortunately I didn’t have a camera to take a picture to show you). And then I thought about the scraps I have and started to play:

and to understand what I was doing I took the white black photo too

The volley net worked with the air and it was a good place to hang the work

I don’t know how this is going to finish, maybe I’ll just quilt it.

The Silent People

Hello my dear readers and thank you so much for your comments in my last post!

After the finished work it takes a little bit time to jump to a new project. I want to try to do so many things but from where to start…I have so many ideas and I try to put them in order !

Near my home in Finland, beside the road there is the artwork of Reijo Kela. These peat heads have their clothing attended to twice a year. Their heads come straight from the field and their clothes from organized collections. If the Silent People were to be completely undressed there would remain some one thousand wood crosses standing in the field!

These pictures from last summer gave me an inspiration to make my own silent people..

one  of the people found its place from my jacket and I think it is okay there!  I hope one day the block will find its own place in a blanket…

I wish you to have a lovely weekend!

” Running Water”

Hello! I found a block that reminds me half-empty jar ( a block with triangles as Sujata Shah teaches in her book) Then I put many blocks together and it seemed like a liquid fills many jars in different levels. My husband calls this work “Running water”. And when I am looking again this quilt I feel like water is moving…
