OMG - how time flies!!!!

Wow, it has been 3 weeks today since my last post - way too long.... But thats the way it is (and should be...) during summertime, lots of other things taking my time and attention. First of all - at last its time for sailing again, lying in the sun doing nothing but watch whatever's passing by.

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)

I love your works in solids. And the thread colors added to this really add a nice texture.
