As February is such a short month, I am so glad I managed
to write one post at the nick of time ... lol ...!
February is in fact our winter month no.1, lately weather-wise
we wake up to any sort of day: warm, cold, sun, rain, wind, snow + etc....
Sure you can see my car down there from our bedroom window,
by the evening all snow rained away:
I have AT LAST finished one block of Simply Blessed.
Some of my friends have finished 5 blocks, now I really must make
a plan how to solve a little problem in this respect,
as the total is 9 big blocks altogether.
Here is my version of Kaffe Fassett`s" TEAPOTS" from his book
"Quilts in Morocco". The quilt came back yesterday from the long-arm
quilter, Merete, at sy.no . She does the most perfect machine quilting.
Happy to say I love the fabric with the bright colours!
I think my name must be:" Happy teapots in my flower garden"!
All fabrics from my Kaffe Fasset+ Brandon Mably+Phillip Jacobs box.
I redused the seize 50 pct. The seize is now aprox, 60" x 80".
By changing things around in the kitchen,
it is bound to fit on a wall. Will be so perfect :-)
Rembember two of the table mats from some years back?
At last I have managed to finish the next two.
The main fabric is also Kaffe Fassett`s, from his "Bekah" range,
bought the fabric "the Festival of Quilts" in 2008 or 2009.
On the kitchen table here, just for testing :-) See the matching glasses,
they were new-made when Norway arranged the Olympic Games.
We only have these 4, they have the special Olympic sign engraved on them.
MARCH will be such a busy month. Some SPECIAL events will take place:
"40" ... "75" ... 20-23 ... 29 ... probably etc. here as well.
Stay put, and I will tell you later :-)
Well, all for now!
But first I must admit: I have really failed in my promise to myself on
New Years Eve year. 2015 should have been my UFO-year ONLY.
.Feeling so confident day after day after day...
Kept my promise till February 15th. Then, alas(? / :-),
I signed up for a sort of a BOM, more info on this my blog later one day.
Wishing you a happy sewing time! Hugs, Grethe xx.
