End of holidays / fini les vacances

Time to go back to more serious quilting , so I did start two new projects plus the broderie Perse and of course the chooks. As the garden is still dormant I can spend more time sewing. And for those who know me I am doing hexagons ( yep, but I don’t think I’ll ever be a hexie fan). In order to use some of my stash,I used up all the strips left from my son’s log cabin quilt and it will be a backing for the chooks.

Keep warm and keep sewing


Il est temps de se remettre au choses sérieuses, j’ai donc començé deux nouveaux projets en plus de celui avec la broderie Perse et bien sûr les poules. Comme le jardin est en veille je peux passer plus de temps à coudre. Pour celles qui me connaissent je suis entrain de coudre des hexagones ( si, si, mais je ne pense pas être jamais une fan). Et pour se débarrasser de quelques tissus j’ai utilisé toutes les bandes restantes du quilt log cabin de mon fils et cela servira de doublure pour le quilt des poules.

Restez au frais et continuez à coudre

There is always one

there is always one

The winter seem to have settled. The streets glitters under the light with all that rain, the air is filled with the nice scent of wood fire and for me, coming from Switzerland, it feels like if Christmas is just around the corner

So for once I indulged and made a whimsy Christmas project for all the Christmas in July .

Nancy Halvorsen’s gorgeous range “Let it snow” was too tempting and the colours just what the doctor ordered.

Have fun and e-mail me some pictures of your version.
