A life full of colors!

This work took me back to the beginning of my adventure with patchwork. I used some of my favorite fabrics almost to the last thread, first cutting large rectangles for the quilt, and then from what was left – tiny ones for pillows. Fabrics from which so many colorful works were created, those combined with black 🙂

The set is a wedding gift and I have included a lot of good wishes for the newlyweds’ further journey together 🙂

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

This wall hanger has been created with left overs from my recent works. It’s rather tiny – just 23 x 40 cm.

With this post I’m saying good bye to all visiting this place and wishing you all the best. I hope to see you all next year too!

Bird nests

These are the lasts of series of baskets. The bird nests panels contained twelve pictures, hence three baskets have been made.

I have designed and made the pilot one, just for myself, more than four years ago (!). It’s still proved very useful, as every time I’m tidying up my study, I’m throwing all the scattered  bits and pieces into it.

The second bag I designed and sewed for Ela, and for her sanctuary in particular :). The next two that are the subject to this post. They are just a consecutive creation, in which I used all the pictures from this non-typical panel of bird nsest/houses and various scraps.

I believe that every creative person that sews has an urge to finish pieces once started using materials already in hand without buying anything new. I guess that’s the stage I’m currently in.

Winter night

When I was a child, long winter nights with light reflexing on the snow where pretty much every day’s experience.

A downhill sled ride from a little hill nearby, until we couldn’t breath and our fingers were numb. Straight into the fairy tale forest. The icerink just next to our house, made by my mum, full of neighbors’ kids. And home returns, warming frozen feet on a radiator and frozen palms with a cup of tee… All the charm of snowed and frozen winter.

Blue classics

In my opinion, such pads would be a perfect testing ground for someone who would like to start the patchwork adventure. It’s simple, square and simply pretty. At least if one likes a blue colour.
