Sewing Sunday

Hello my Friends!!!
How are you going?
It's Monday again...the week end unfortunately went away so quickly...
But...I've had a very fun Sunday...
My friend Luciana come here and we spent the whole day sewing these super cute origami bags...


They were really so fun to make...we chose happy and brilliant fabrics and this is the result...


We started sewing one...then...the second one...and it seemed that we really can't stopped sewing them...


Every fabrics we chose gave them a different look and it was amazing to see how they turned out...
They really make pretty gifts...we can fill them with lots of things...make up, accessories, threads needles and fabrics, biscuits, candies...

I think they are perfect for any occasion...change the fabris and fill them with goodies for make a very personalised gift...
We started to fill our Xmas box with these bags and we intend make lots of other cute things from now till December so...when Xmas will come...we will be ready!!!
It's never too early to start with Xmas gifts isn't it? LOL!!!

And finally...yesterday...when my friend left my house...I finished a project that I've started mmm...I really can't remember when but...at least 3 or 4 years ago...
It was another Sunday sewing day and along with my friend we sewed this super cute box...


I sewed it all around and just leave the bottom to sew...
But...this bottom...took me soooooo long  to be done....LOL


Now..it's done and I'm proud of myself LOL!!!


I have tons of other UFO's to sew...we will see what I'll do with them...
So...I wish you all a great week and,,,I'd love to hear from you about what you are sewing or crafting...

From house to HOME


Hello My Friends,
how are you going?
I'm fine and pretty busy this week end...today housework and cooking but tomorrow...fun!!!
A friend of mine will come here for a whole day of sewing...can't wait!!!
Ok...now...let's talk about this post title...
Now...there are a bit more then  4 months that I'm living here in my new flat...
I love it more then the older one so...I decided to add a touch of me in it...
I put here and there some quilts I made in the past...
Some in my bedroom...


I've also put one on my bed...


And  fews on this beautiful wood ladder...


Some in my sewing room too...


Now I'm making some changes in the kitchen too...and I'll show you when all will set...
 I'm feeling my flat more then my home and not  simply a house...
I think it's warmer now and everyone will come  will immediately know that a quilter lives here...
What do you think?
I would love to hear from you.
In the meantime...I wish you all a wonderful Week End!!!
Dany.

Mission Baby Quilt...DONE


Hello my Friends!!!
How are you going?
I've just finished my first quilt of the year...
It's good as we are only in January LOL!!!
My first quilt was a baby quilt I made for a friend of mine that got a new girl the last days of December...
Yesterday I visited her and gave her the quilt...she loves it!
It is a very easy pattern, quick and easy but the quilt is adorable with the pastels colors...

I made it in rows...it's made of three rows...


I start piecing the rows...


Then when the rows were pieced I quilted them with the As You Go method...in this way is more easy...


When all the rows were quilted, I sewed the back and then I've add the border and...TADA!!!!
Here it is...


Now I'm ready to start another project...
I'll keep you posted about it!
What are you working on?
I would love to hear about your WIPS...
Have a nice Sunday!!!!

Putting down Xmas decorations

Hi!!!!
this week end I'm going to put down my Xmas decorations but...as I didn't show you them when I put them up...I'm showing you them now before to take them away...




I didn't make a Xmas tree but I decided to decorate my console...
So I chose a tree branch and put on it my Xmas decorations .




I love the way all turned out...all white and red...it made me smile every time I opened the door...





Now it's time to put them away and come back to the normality but I will miss my decorations LOL!




Will have to find something else that make me happy to put on the console until next Xmas...














See you on next post...this week end I'm going to work on the baby quilt...
I'll show you my progresses...
Have a nice week end !!!!

Welcome 2016


Dear Friends,
First of all...Happy New Year to all of you!!!
I wrote my latest post several months ago...and so it's time to write again...
Some things are already changed in my life...I've had another move and so I've got a new apartment...
This one is nicer and bigger than the old one and I have a bigger sewing room so I'm going to sew again...
I did some sewing for Xmas, some little Xmas gifts and now I'm going to start some new projects...
I have to make a baby quilt in the next few days as a friend of mine got a new baby girl...
But...in the meantime...I'm happy to show you the first project I finished yesterday ...
It's not bad...3 days of the new year and I'm already done with one project!!!
Mmm...yes...not really...I've started this crochet blanket about 3 years ago LOL!!!!
But now...it's done !!!
Here it is...
 



Ok this is my blanket...I love the way it turned out and it's perfect now as it's cold outside ...it keeps me warm...
This is the first time that I'm writing a post with my iPad and I have no clues about the way it will turn out...
So...it's better that I close here and go to check...LOL!!!!
For now ...I wish you all a wonderful 2016!!!!
I will be back soon!!!!

Crochet Projects




















Hello!
Patchwork is not my unique passion...I also love crochet!
I find it so relaxing and and I can do it everywhere...
Actually I'm working on two different projects...just because one is not enough LOL!!!!

The first one is a "long" project...I'm making a granny square blanket...
A friend of mine gave me 3 big balls of beautiful grey yarn and so I decided to make a blanket...


I love colors so I added some colors to my grey blanket...
I'm using a light green, pink and light blue yarn too...


I'm liking the way it's turning out and I like the fact that I can do it every day...watching tv or listening my favourite music... Granny Square is a really easy crochet pattern and this is great for relax...


For my second faster project I chose colorful cottons...
I found a nice pattern on internet ...it was for a sit cover but I decided to make it as a big and colorful doily for my kitchen table...


For spring season I strongly need colors LOL!!!!!
I've just started this second project today so...I'm sharing with you my progress...


I think it will be bright and happy...


This is how it's turning out...I can't wait to have it done and put it on my table...
What do you think?
Are you working on some crochet projects too?
I'd love to hear from you all too!!!!
Happy Week End to you all!!!!
Dany.
