Wednesday... Flower Day !

Aaaaah, nothing better than a few flowers, under such chilly weather...
Inspired by our talented Dutch friend Ria,
(check her gorgeous flower garden under the label "Hexagonnetjes" in her sidebar)
I just started this flower garden (3/4 inch hexie papers)
and I'm hooked !

Enjoy your sewing, my friends !

Note : I'm still experiencing problems with my blog layout, thanks for your patience.

Blog problems.....

Don't know what's happening ?
I'm experiencing some problems with my blog :
the font (wallpaper) doesn't show anylonger, and most of my sidebar gadgets disappeared !?
Yet, I re-initialized all information, etc...
No way.
Did any Blogger users among you already experience this ?
I'd be grateful if you could help me

I'm in the mood for blues... Life is beautiful !

Leaves are changing colors,
Dancing in the cold breeze, and playing music in the trees...
Little birds now gather together,
Preparing for the big migration,
and celebrating the change of season...
It took me 2 years to organize this birdies family reunion,
quietly handpiecing one or two, here and there...
Now they're ready for their handquilting trip,
and my needle will happily fly among them.

Meet "The Blues Brothers and their cousin"

Original pattern : "In the Leafy Tree Tops"
designed by our talented friend Nanette,
Thanks dear !
No matter how long it took me,
I'm sooo grateful for the pleasure I had, piecing these cuties together !

Life is beautiful - Update nr. 5

These looong vacations allowed me to progress on the LIB project, and I really enjoyed completing all (32) stitcheries.

I'm now busy machine piecing the 4-patch blocks for the background,
and will then applique the stitcheries on them.
Still a lot to do, one stitch at a time,
among other new projects (? ? ? ) ...
but this is another story, for next post !

Enjoy your sewing, my friends !

Back...Just in time for Klosjes Day ! ;>)

Hellooooooo, dear friends !
Back from beautiful Provence,
where we had such a wonderful time...
(although I missed you!)
We visited a lot of heavenly places,
tasted the most delightful fresh local products,
AND spent an unforgettable week with Vali & Hubby...
Boy, did we have FUN !
Yet I was a good girl, and made some progress in my sewing :
first with my klosjes, as I managed to piece 132 of them
(which makes my total reaching approx. 300)
I was happy with that, but "fed up", as I told Vali.
She always has such brilliant ideas, and suggested it was time
to start piecing them together !
This gave me the right push I needed to keep going
And here's the result...
(The background fabric is a little treasure I found in a local quiltshop, and I'm planning to use it as the border fabric)
I've got SO MUCH MORE to tell you,
(and even more progress to show, HeeHee.....)
I guess this will take several coming posts.
not to mention those last 2 months posts of yours
that I have to catch up
(and I know I'm going to discover such treasures)
Have a nice weekend, THANKS for visiting,
and by all means
