Back again…

I am back here again after so many months! It is since May I wrote my last posting here in my blog, how fast time is passing!

In summer I stayed in Finland quite long time so I didn’t have time for quilts and sewing. I tried to find quilting fabrics and for my bad luck the shop I usually have bought lot of beautiful quilting fabrics was closed and instead of filling my suitcase with fabrics I brought Finnish coffee!!

During summer I sent my sewing machine for service. I have Janome and  I always send it to Athens to Janome  so it takes every time at least few weeks. And after the service it is so lovely to sew like with the new machine!

So I mentioned just few reasons why I am so long time without writing anything…

It is autumn but during this weekend here in Greece it has been very warm and nice weather. Today I finished my quilt I had started in April and I showed the fabrics in the last post.


This is full size quilt 80″ x 80″. I bought Archer pdf pattern by Colorgirl and wanted to use low volume fabrics I had. Because those grey-white srtips were difficult enough to match with each others I chose to make free small flower quilting to “break” the lines. It took quite long time to make machine quilting for so big quilt. For my next quilt I am not going to make the same quilting!


I had also few Liberty fabrics I wanted to put into this quilt.


I know I have to make more practice with my camera…but the quilt is big enough and the only place to hung it is ..volleyball net


or at balcony


Maybe the best place is :


Anyway I am happy I finished it!



And flowers from the garden..


Happy October!

The pouches

I was almost sure I never win in Giveaways so you can imagine how happy I was when Svetlana from s.o.t.a.k handmade sent me an email and told me that I was a winner in her Giveaway!

So I won the pouch kit and three of her screen printed panels. I made the pouch, it was so easy and fast to make with the instructions.





I show you an other pouch  I have bought the pattern ( anna pouch) from Svetlana too. My daughter chose the fabrics. This pouch has two pouches which are sewn together.




I love these pouches!

After my blue scarp project I started to make a new quilt, this time I am going to make a full size quilt, I just hope I have fabric enough. I found from my boxes quite many fat quarters in low volume and thought it would be nice to have one big quilt made from those fabrics.



But about this new project I will show you more next time. Till then I wish you to be fine and thanks for visiting my blog!

Flowers and bags

Hello, I wish all of you to be fine! I have been quite busy and the days pass. I had a small accident with my hand but it is getting better now so I could sew few bags.

The first one is made from squares with warm colors ( 5″ x 5″ ). I thought maybe it is going to be too “hot” for the summer but I think it is ” demi” and it is okay as a summer bag too.


My teen daughter wanted to have her own so I made a little bit bigger and more casual one.


I love her bag, it has very nice color and I quilted squares to the fabric ( you hardly see them).To the both bags I put magnetic buttons.




I started also a new project. I don’t know actually how it is going to be in the end but I thought something with flowers – it is summertime and in my summer there are many flowers!




The most of the flowers are made from low volume fabric. I should have made the better fonto, because it is difficult to see the colors but I will show you my progress next time.

One week ago we found a small cat. It was in a quite bad condition. Now it is getting better and stronger every day and it is so cute!


Isn’t it?
