March!

It is March! And almost a month after my previous post here.
fat quarter bundles for my brand new quilting supply shop!

So here is what is new - I was knitting socks like crazy. Had some foot trouble and successfully overcame it. I was sewing too little and knitting too much... well, I already mentioned it, nut it was a lot... Will show pics soon.

I finally let my quilt shop idea become true. Partly due to uncertainty around, too much work, too much pressure... partly because I suddenly had a blog less to take care for... So I opened an online shop for quilting supplies.

Table Runner Quilt Along

I started a table runner along this month. Mine is almost ready and I've just realized I never mentioned about it here...
You can find the first two steps below:
Part One
Part Two
I will post the third one next week.
Edited to add: Third part will be delayed a bit due to technical problems.

Another cold gloomy day. Another fresh, vivid green fabric...

I tend to really love fresh grass green in late winter.

Quilted today and ready for binding. Not telling yet what it is. But I am anxious to get it all finished and start using it.

Zakka Love

You might know what 'zakka" means, or you may not... It is a special word and every sewing enthusiast with passion for simplicity and crisp designs would be alerted hearing it... Yay! Works like magic.

So I decided to name one of the categories in the boutique "zakka". I did not realize how obsessive sewing might be. I friend of mine asking me

"what does 'zakka' mean?"

made me think yesterday.

February 15th - Wine, Love and Aprons

kids'aprons for a happy cheff
Hope you had a lovely and loving Valentine day.

I had a great day. And we celebrate two holidays in a single day - love and wine days.

Love and wine make a great holiday couple - drink a glass of a wine with your sweetheart. Isn't it a lovely tradition?

PS These are some of the aprons I sewed for kids lately. Love how cheerful they are and how happy a kid is when cooking with an apron of its own.

Happy New Year! Happy New Month! Happy New Items in the Shop!

Valentine heart ornaments
Happy New Year!
Hope you had a lovely celebration and fantastic January!
Here comes February with new emotions and new items in the shop.

We start the creative 2011 on February 1st with the first new products in the shop for 2011.
I was liking, admiring, and listing in my to-do list these hearts for ages, thus making them the first new thing for 2011 was more than expected /by me/. LOL

These are little, cheerful, personal, functional gifts - the true essence of my idea of gifts - useful beauty with appealing look. And they are fragrant too!

Each one is scented with a few drops of pure lavender essential oil. Its aroma is relaxing and moths do hate smelling even a single drop around them - great for you, and for your clothes too.
