LITTLE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

Hi dear friends,

yesterday I went to my sewing room without really knowing what to do and stardet grabbing some fabric scraps (Liberty). Some time ago I bought dry lavender flowers with the idea to make perfumed sachets. And finally I ended up with three lovely gifts for Christmas.

Soon I'll make a tutorial to show how I made them. Have a nice week.
Hugs. Pink

CAPPUCCINO QUILT PART 2

MY CAPPUCCINO QUILT IS TOGETHER AND THE BORDERS ARE ON. NOW IT'S QUILTING TIME!
SINCE THE QUILT IS VERY GEOMETRICAL I THINK I'LL QUILT IT WITH LOTS OF CIRCLES.



HAVE A NICE DAY. HUGS.

CAPPUCCINO QUILT

AFTER A QUITE LONG BREAK I FINALLY GOT THE INSPIRATION FOR A NEW QUILT. IT WILL BE A QUILT FOR MY DH AND SO IT IS MORE MASCULINE. I LOOKED FOR LOTS OF NEUTRAL FABRICS AND I CALLED IT CAPPUCCINO.

HERE IS THE PROBABLY FINAL LAYOUT:



THIS MORNING I SEWED THE LAST FOUR BLOCKS AND NOW I THINK IT IS BIG ENOUGH. I WILL JUST ADD A DARKER BROWN BORDER.

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK. HUGS.

New Kitchen Garden

Dear friends,

my kitchen garden gave me lots of satisfaction and harvest during this very short time since I started. Unfortunately on August 11th we have a very big landslid on our coast and my garden is in danger. There are only about 20 cm at one corner and the it falls down for 100m.
Here a picture to get you an idea:
Now I'm working on a new kitchen garden, near the green house. Hopefully safer than the first one.
Pumpkin growing

Last weeds

Work in progress
Wish me good work! Luckily due to our climate we can work on it longer then in other places and this soil is far better, because our donkey Alice lived here for a couple of years.
Hugs.
