and some new ideas and projects were wandering around in my mind lately. I´d love to learn how to sew a Quilt. I´ve always loved all those pretty pictures of hand made, colourful, bright, prescious Quilts. Online I´ve bought two books and in the evenings I´m now studying them.
I knew myself well and know that hand sewing a quilt is nothing for me. I´m not patient enough, don´t have so much discipline and uhhhh ohhh so many little stitches by hand!!! So machine quilting it will be for me. I found out that one should have a special foot for the machine which I don´t have (obvious) but we will see.
I would prefer to use cotton batting, but couldn´t find any in the fabric stores I visited last week so I´ve bought a half meter of Acryl batting that the saleswoman recommended for quilting.
So taaaataaaaaaaa.....my first quilted item! A chair pad!
And because it was so nice and the machine worked fine today.... A drawstring bag (from the bag book) for David and his sports stuff for school.
And because at the evenings when the little one is sleeping I can´t sew and have to do something with a bit less noise than my sewing machine, I´ve casted on for some simple socks that Felix can wear under his rubber boots. The yarn is Wollmeise twin in Indisch Rot. He chose the yarn and colour when I showed him the box with the sockyarn and asked him which one he wants for his new socks.
A wonderful day to you.
