Some family  issues caught my time and energy,
yet I could take some short relax times,
making small items :
("Tout ce qui est petit est joli")

1. A pincushion


                                                                     and down...
This is a pattern from Jeanneke
I ordered it from her Etsy shop and got it 2 days after
(very good service!)
Jeanneke's instructions and pattern sheet are SO clear,
it was a real treat to make this pincushion.
THANKS, Jeanneke!

1. A pouchie ???

                                                                     No... Three !
Aren't they cute ?
(from a Yoko Saito pattern book)

Now comes the time to slowly start preparing
my sewing projects for (long) vacations in Spain,
Finally !

Stay tuned, I'll post once more before leaving...

LAURA... Empty Nest Syndrom...

24 years ago...
she came into our lives quite unexpectedly,
as the icing on the cake of our beautiful family.
We were quite surprised and anxious,
but as a blessing she has always been
the most smiling child
among our 4 kids,
with such a good temper,
and a human caring nature...

Now she's starting an exciting new chapter in her life,
settling down with her beloved Nicolas
in their brand new appartment,
and we wish them
love, peace, happiness...

A strange feeling of emptiness is now filling our hearts,
as we realize the long path we walked hand in hand.
34 years of  love, joy, care, but also fears, tears, anxieties,
sometimes rich, sometimes poor, counting our dimes,
but with such a collection of blessings and precious moments.
Oh, those giggles, when we were 6 around the table !
Oh, those rushes to reach school on time !
Oh, those evening stories, we read together before sleeping !

We will now pay love and attention to this new chapter
in our own lives,
The story never ends, we're just walking a new path,
As time goes by...

More news on the quilty front, by next post.

Enjoy your sewing, dear friends !
