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.

Green! Feathers and a Wreath in One - Featherred Wreasth

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.
