Instead I am going to sew. I just finished this wall hanging.
I designed this to use for a class, but decided it was too difficult for a beginners class, because it took me quite a while to finish it. The little boat is appliqued and the other one is patchwork.
Last Wednesday I invited the groups I taught some time ago for a get-to-gather in my garden. We had a lovely time but, unfortunately, I didn't have time to make any pictures. Too busy serving, talking, admiring the work they made. A lot of my students wanted to learn how to make bags, so we decided to do some lessons. That will be fun again!
Quite some time ago I found some vintage flanel with a very old-fashioned children's design. I bought a lot of it, but don't know very well what to do with it. I will probably use it for a baby quilt. I made this pyama bag for a try-out.
And last, but not least, I want to show you my beautiful bougainville. It took about 15 years !!! for it to start blooming, but it was well worth the time. I am glad I didn't pull it out, because lots of times I was tempted to do so.
I get a lot of spam on my blog, so I decided to use word verification for some time. At least, I hope, that I did! I always get a bit mixed up with those Settings issues!
