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!

My first quilt

Hello! Today it was sunny. I arranged my quilts and want now to show you the first quilt I made. It was few years ago, I found pattern from Internet, I had some fabric and I was ready to take my first step to the world of the quilts. I knew sewing from my school time and fortunately I had brought my sewing machine from Finland when I got married! I made quilting by hand, I didn’t know actually what was the right quilting but I tried to make tiny,tiny stitches.. And I finished this quilt in very short time, I was so enthusiastic with my new hobby!! The binding is quite thick, I didn’t have an idea about basting! I wanted to do the quilt for my youngest daughter and because I didn’t have a lot of fabric I tried to make it larger with binding!!! Now it is a little bit short for my daughter but she still loves to be covered with it.

Here are some pictures about the quilt. The light was doing some tricks , I told it was a sunny day!
