Scandinavian Rose, Luna's new jackets, and hot weather, again
I just can't believe that is has been nearly 4 years since I finished all the stitcheries for the Scandinavian Rose quilt! I put them away in the box and that it is where they have been all this time. I think that at the time I wasn't quite sure about the final finish, I did not want to go with the original pattern; sadly, they got forgotten.
Last weekend, when the weather changed and it rained the whole weekend, I found my sewing room again, and moving some boxes around, I came across the stitcheries.
It is time to do something about it!
I am more inspired now; instead of using just red and white patchwork for the borders, I decided to throw some blue into it.
I already have some white fabric for the backing in my stash,
so all I need now is some wadding and I can start quilting it!
Do you remember my little friend Luna Lapin? I made her about 18 months ago, and since then she has lived in the one dress I made her at the time.
Some time ago I came across a group on Facebook, called Luna Lapin Little World! One of the group members, Patricia Freeman, designed a pretty knitted jacket for Luna.
I could not resist and Luna now has 2 new jackets, she is very pleased 😊
Despite weeks of hot dry weather, our garden is not in a bad shape, thanks to DH's patient watering and feeding.
Apparently the hot weather is coming back; it looks like, again, the sewing room might not be the best place to be. 😞
