Sew Along: Farmer's Wife 1930s

I decided to join the fun of a new Sew Along, organized by Angie from Gnome Angel in Australia!

The Sew Along did not start yet, but the group is growing and growing so quickly on Facebook, this is going to be such a fun to see each one's block!

If you would like to study the rules and all the information about this sew along, click on the button above, everything is super organized!

The Sew Along starts on 28th September, so there is still time to buy the book (which includes a template CD on the back), to go through all the beautiful fabrics you have at home or which are waiting for you in the next shop :-)

Farmer's Wife 1930s, Block #1, Addie
Farmer's Wife 1930s, Block #1, Addie

And of course, as I already have the book, I had to try out the first block using Kona Solids and Tula Pink..... and I love the result...

So, do not hesitate, join the fun!

MQG Challenge 2015

I am a member of the Modern Quilt Guild since more than one year now and really happy about what is presented to all the members.

I’m a member of the MQG!

As I am living in Switzerland, it is not very simple to visit the event MQG organizes, but this year, I took part in the Riley Blake Challenge organized by MQG.

I received a FQ-Bundle of the Riley Blake Collection "Cottage Garden" by Amanda Herring.

I decided to sew a nine-patch block, and cut it with the QCR-Ruler of Sew Kind of Wonderful

Sew Kind of Wonderful has so many great patterns with this ruler, so I took the Nine Patch Block which is included in the Curve it Up Pattern and used it with the fabrics received.

I quilted the bed quilt by hand with Presencia Pearl Cotton and by machine just around the whole blocks.

A huge thank you to Riley Blake Designs for sponsoring the Challenge and for MQG for the whole organization.

The quilt is being used now and the owner is very happy !

Summer time is dyeing time

Summer is beautiful here, it is sunny and hot, exactly how I like it!

It is also a great time for dyeing, this year, I began to dye raw silk from Thailand. It has a beautiful texture and with the Ashford Dyes, the process of dyeing is just fantastic!

But I am not only dyeing silk, I also take the opportunity to put wool into the colour baths and the results are beautiful.

I can't wait to felt this soft Wensleydale-wool into small lights .....

And off I am, still have to dye some more 12 yards of silk, LOL .....

Have a Latte - Blog Hop!

It is time again for the "Have a Latte" Blog Hop! A Hop full of coffee smell, wonderful creations in fabrics and in brews...

A huge THANK YOU to Mdm Samm for organizing this Coffein hop and of course to Joan for cheering us to create and drink coffee...

This hop is about COFFEE, ooh yeas, I love coffee! The fabric collection was designed by Dan Di Paolo for Clothworks and is named "Have a Latte".

And here is the schedule of today's ladies!

How Art You? (you are here)

For this hop, I wanted to sew small projects and I decided to combine sewing with x-stitching. I saw this pattern online and I knew exactly it would perfectly fit the fabric collection...

Here are the first five owls I finished as mug rugs....

From low coffein level to high voltage....

I just love these owls looking weird after having drunk their cup of coffee....

The only one I did not stitch up to now, is the "Irish Coffee" Owl, but I already started it, it cannot be ommitted!

Perfect rugs for a cup of my favourite coffee brew, Sumatra, with my Bodum press

And I also did some bigger rugs for the table, using the same collection.

I kept the quilting design very straight, as the cups are dancing and swirling around.

Thank YOU all for the visit, and do not forget to visit all the fellow bloggers of today and the coming days, have a nice coffee and relax!
