It is quite long time since I have been sewing with my machine. On these days I am hooked on hand stitching. Just sitting and taken few stitches…
without knowing actually what I want to do,just letting my thoughts to fly…
..I love birds and orange..these leafs have touch of velvet.
My daughter gives me her diary, she needs a book cover. I want to give her my bird with the leafs and few stitches. So the work starts:
I finished late in the evening.
And today I started my day with this lovely view..
Have a nice day and a lovely week! Till next time! x Anneli
First of all, because this is my first posting here in this year I wish all you good health and joyful moments in this year!
What I have been doing these days? I have been doing the last month something what I was doing occasionally the last 12 months. It is a secret work and I hope it will be finished soon so I can show it to you. Actually it is almost ready. I just have to make a quilting and I am not sure how to do it because it is project with wool!
I made also something I am going to show you now! I made a hexagon star. I spent a whole day by drawing different sizes of hexagon to make templates to find the size I wanted.
I should have taken the photo from this star beside the matchbox so you could see the size but maybe it helps if I say that the outer edge is 4 “.
I also made one piece of cake and it was not a piece of cake at all!I made the star above with paper – paper piecing and the piece of cake without paper, just piecing!
Huh, I had also to make hand sewing because there were tiny pieces and it was not possible to use sewing machine. In fact this could be a house too!! Anyway I think I am not going to put it down . I want to do some changes to this cake and I hope I can show you soon the new piece.
Last evening I finished at least the tree I made applique. I made it a pillow and put the zipper behind. Can you see the ladybug under the tree?
Few days ago we had snow here in our small town. The olive trees were covered with snow! We lost the snow at the same day and today it is again a “green” day.
Till next time! x Anneli
