Everything started from here:

I organized my scraps according the color. I try not to throw anything so I have a lot small leftovers and had to do something with them. I chose pink color and started to sew…

But what to do with this small piece of new fabric?

Maybe a blanket for a Rosy? ( Rosy is my daughter’s cuddly,my daughter took Rosy along where ever she went when she was small, so Rosy traveled in many countries and now she is sitting on the bed)

I thought that blanket would be too rosy for Rosy and ….

The “blanket” made a new appearance as a pouch! And now when I made the first Ι remembered the nail polish I had and I made few more these pouches…

During these days when I made these pouches I met one boy who showed me his favorite Lego, Mini Cooper. He told me that he would like to have a nice box to keep it inside. I asked him to come  to my house to make a box. One day he came with his mother and he made this box by himself and he was so happy!

Two half done and one done!

Hello my dear friends, I hope you all are fine and waiting for the weekend to sew!

After the year changed I try to avoid to make the program with my sewing just because after I am going to be stressed. So I decided to take each day as it comes without stress and pressure!

So, because I try to take the days as they comes, I find myself with three different works on my sewing table, I hope my year is not going to be chaos and in the end of this year my table will be full off unfinished works!

After having a look at my fabrics I saw bags of scraps…again! ( I thought I didn’t have any more). I had to do something. Without knowing exactly what it is going to be I chose the scrap bag with blue and started to sew, I haven’t finished yet and that’s why I am not showing your everything just few pictures to have a taste..

Now I start to figure out what to do with these blocks, I think…

and just to get lost with those blocks…

By the way I wanted to tell you also about last weekend. Our teens participated in workshop about wearing technology and I showed how to make a backstitch, so on Sunday they were sewing lights Led  and doing embroidery with flashing lights!

Now back to my scraps! The second work, which is also from small pieces of fabrics is this tree. I tried applique and then I made embroidery too. Making stitching is so relaxing and you can take your work everywhere!DSC_0430

I think it is going to be a pillow. One friend of mine told me I should put it in frame.

These were my two unfinished works till now and to the end I show you the book cover I made to my daughter for her diary. This one I finished and my daughter loved the bees I made from felt.

Before I leave, I want to show one picture from one morning, when I woke up there were so much moisture in the air and it looked so magic.
