Taking a swim in the way too cold sea (11 gr C)... Well at least for me, I was the one holding the towels ready :o)
Having quality time with the family, relaxing in the arms of a loved one :o)
While on the boat I have started handquilting Bella Parade, and I really like how it turns out. It will get some wrinkles I think but I dont mind. Maybe they disappear when I wash it after its finished. As Im not a very experienced handquilter, my stitches are not even all over, but they will be better in time. I am using Pearl Cotton DMC thread.
I have made a load of toiletpurses/make-up purses etc for a friend of mine. I didnt take pictures of them all, but here are some
This one is made of leftovers from Bella Parade, and I practiced my swirlquilting - could have been better.... :o)
To be kind to my elbow I try to vary between sewing and knitting, and Im knitting a jacket for myself using Alpaca and a sweater (Fabel) for a sweet little boy I know :o)
I guess, for some reason, Im trying to convince you all that even if I havent been blogging, I have been doing something :o) Well, well - anyway Im happy its summer!
I also want to thank you all for all those sweet comments on my last post, I really really appreciate all of them - THANK YOU !!!
See U soon :o)
