HOME

Today I stay at home. I need to make my house'"organized" And take some time for myself :c) .
Thank you all for your warm comments and mails! I got so much, it take some time to reply them all, but I will :c) .



This is what I made for so far. They are not all sew together but you can see the progress. I also putt a thimble on it. So that you can see how the size is from the tiny hexagons. I think it is becomming a nice little quilt.




Whyle searching for left over fabrics to take with me to hospital I found this in a basket. I was forgotten that I once start with it. To many ideas I think !




I will also share the progress from my tulips. I take them always with me to my quiltgroup at thursday afternoon. With four woman from my age we sew together! It is always a handproject , easy to take with! I prepare the tulips at home and will do the applique at the meeting. Every week we come together in one of our houses.. And we work on projects from ourself. Through the years we noticed that that is the best for us :c) .

Glad you are stitching again - it's great for giving one a feeling of peace and contentment. I didn't realize you hexagons were so very tiny! I love the way you've fussy cut the fabrics. Glad you found the triangle quilt - that one looks good. And the tulips too. The scrappy blossoms are delightful! You do such beautiful work!

Good to hear that you are taking some time for yourself! I like all your projects. The tulips are great! Is that from the Liberated Quilt book? I started a hexagon quilt last fall. I never thought I would be interested in doing one but our guild had a class on it and I was hooked. I love how it is so portable. Take Care!

Lucy, your hand projects are coming along nicely. I like hearing about your little group of friends that meet once a week. Sounds like a lot of fun.

You are a smart woman. If you don't take care of you, then you won't be able to care for others. I love your handwork and will be looking forward to seeing it progress.

I love the fussy cut hexagons - very cute. The tulips are looking really great now there are more of them - all perfect projects for take-alongs.

Lucy your tulips are to die for! I'm loving that project more and more! It is sooo great!

And your hexagons are looking so good too! I HAVE to get mine out once I get back from my mom's.

And the triangles are wonderful too. I see one of my favorite fabrics on the top row second dark triangle pointing down (the brown with pink and paisleys)! I have some of that fabric and I love it!

Carolyn said...

Thank you for sharing all of your progress, all three projects are wonderful. Prayers continue to go out for your father, you and your family. Hope is a wonderful thing to have! Carolyn
