"Whatever your hands find to do, verily do it with all your might" Ecclesiastes 9-10

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 !
