January

It's time to shake off that winter blues and go back to the studio...
We've had some snow at last. It lasted just a week and it was really pretty.
The first part of our winter was so mild that the summer weeds are still there. Really strange...
And now, we already have crocuses and daffodils in the garden.
I'll take some pictures tomorrow, if it doesn't rain.

Desert 2

I tried to take a better photo of my "Desert 2" quilt. It's not very good yet, but it will do for now. The light is not great these days. (And I also realized that long and narrow quilts are not easy to photograph without my tripod.)

The blue table runner is almost finished...

Day 17

Day 17 of the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge... I did well for the first week, and then I completely fell behind.
Anyway, I thought I would share this funny leaf I spotted the other day. It looked like it was trying to run away from me!
I am still working on the Japanese fabric quilt, a little everyday.
Saint Nicholas visited one week late this year. He brought cookies, chocolate and a few board games for the granddaughters, and a also pretty little braiding star (from Prym) for me.

The weather has been strangely mild. 15°C today. It's really hard to realize that it's almost the end of the year.

Day 14

A beautiful day...

A nice walk near the water...

And a few hours in the studio...
The quilt is slowly growing.

'Desert 2' quilt

Here are some detail shots of my "Desert 2" quilt...
I still need to take a good photo of the full quilt, but today is a very grey and rainy day.
Hopefully, I'll be able to do it during the weekend.
The next theme of the group is "Orient", and each member has to make two quilts on that new theme as well.

Day 10

Still trying to blog every day of this month with the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge.
So, tonight, after a very nice day, first a picture of the beautiful sky...
Then, a photo of my two completed "Desert" quilts on my design wall...
