I must say that my daughter, who lives in the States, came over for a week. Then time passes really quick!
So, what did I do with the remaining time? I started to teach two women patchwork and quilting. They are going to make a cushion and are doing very well.
The pieces are cut from quilt fabric, vintage greek fabric, a second hand dirndle dress and an old second hand house dress.
The result looks lovely.
It is a challenge to sew pieces cut from different quality cottons, because some pieces have more stretch than others.
I made this red cushion as an example. The other one with the little Asian girls is made earlier. They go very well together and give a feeling of summer in the countryside.
In the background the Jasmine is smelling exquisite! It is a very old one. My father-in-law planted it when he had the house built in 1953! One winter we had 6 continuous days of frost, till -6 degrees. That year a lot of plants died in Sparta. I was very upset because the Jasmine also looked destroyed. But.... next year it started to get new branches and now it is in full bloom again!
Next time I will show the tablet covers I made. I'll try to post them in very due time, because I have plans to do a lot of sewing, so I will have a lot to show!!!!
Time to start working!
