“Take life one Cuppa at a time”

Hello my dear friends! There is quite long time since I wrote last blog post but how fast time passed!!! I have been very busy but made also many new things!

Sometimes I mentioned in my posts about a secret work I was making. Well few days ago the pattern was launched and now I can show you what was my secret project last year.

The whole year I was in BOM CUPPA program organized from Sue Spargo. It was very intensive program. It lasted 12 months and I learnt so much during these months about wool applique and not only, there were lot of creative stitching and applique with cotton too. Different needles and different threads. I think I have become quite good with different needles and threads thanks for this BOM.

I used first time wool batting and have to admit it was dream to quilt!!!

Here we go with this Cuppa quilt

Small houses

The last days I have been sewing small houses. This is a great way to use the scraps. The size of the ready house block is 4″ x 4″ so you can imagine how small the houses are. And I didn’t use the paper!! I made totally 24 blocks and I am thinking how to finish this house project.

Before showing you the photos I just want to say in case you didn’t see the sidebar: I started today in INSTAGRAM!!!You can also follow me there.

And now back to the houses:
